With restrictions lifting post-lockdown, independent and local businesses are relying on your generous custom to stay afloat and compete with those bigger brands! The time to shop locally could not be more important than right now and so we've listed some of our in store favorites to help you shop locally this summer.
All brands discussed are available to purchase via our website.

LoveWell, UK @lovewelluk
Love Well UK is a charity we have been championing since the beginning at Frankly and one we are proud to support all the way! Based in Bristol, their candles are always such a crowd pleaser and make THE perfect gift for that someone special. Love Well are all about supporting women to grow in both confidence and strength, often so they can leave sex work and find alternative employment. They offer vulnerable women an escape route, with the sales of each Love Well product going towards helping fund training and skills development as well as offering support and guidance to women, allowing the most vulnerable women to take control of their lives. As well as purchasing their beautiful products, you can also donate directly to Love well via their website and social media too!
Being a Bristol based charity, we couldn't be prouder of the work that Love Well does on a daily basis. So much so that we have partnered with them! For each sale of our Frankly T-Shirts, 15% of the profits go towards Love Well UK and helping women across the globe seek better opportunities and safer situations.
