Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes
'Fighting Invisible Battles' Pin
Hell Yeah—Championing indie designers since 2018.
We believe that cards shouldn’t end up in the bin the day after your birthday, cushions aren’t just for boring back support, and a good tote bag doesn’t need to be resigned to the bottom of the boot solely to save 5p.
Think the same? You’ve come to the right place. We want to help you find the creme de la creme of indie design.
We’re passionate about independent designers—they’re innovative, quirky trend-setters with an eye for great products—and have made it our mission to seek out the best small businesses about.
Meet our founder, Zoe.
I LOVE stationery, especially cards. In fact, you could say I’m a little obsessed. It was while working at a lovely home and giftware shop in Glasgow that I realised there were hardly any cards that showed my personality. So many cards used the same stock phrases, and although they looked fantastic, I couldn’t help but want a little more pizzaz.
I wanted my friends to enjoy the cards I gave and not just forget them on the mantlepiece. The idea for the first range of Zoe Brennan cards was born. Since 2012 Zoe Brennan Cards has grown and flourished but now it's time for a new adventure!
Hell Yeah was born from the desire to create a platform showcasing indie design. We champion indie designers and only sell work produced by small businesses. We specialise in stationery but also have an innovative range of homewares and accessories. My obsession with stationery and indie design has continually grown over the years and I'm proud to be able to share with you my 'indie finds'—here's to good design!
Your mental health and physical wellbeing are important and it's time that invisible illnesses were recognised as the life changing conditions that they are. This tiny pin is a small reminder to others that although you may look like you're holding it together and staying positive, it can take a lot to get to that stage.
Invisible Battles can refer to many things, including illnesses such as chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis, depression, chronic pain, endometriosis, anxiety, diabetes, fibromyalgia, migraines and many more, but for whatever reason you wear this pin, remember: it is valid.
This pin makes a great little reward to yourself or to let a friend going through difficult times know you're thinking of them and they're not alone. Pin it proudly to your lapel, hat or even pyjamas: because sometimes getting out of bed is hard.
These pins are made of pastel coloured hard enamel in a rainbow of colours with silver coloured plating.
Measurements: 2.5 x 1.4 cm (super small!)
