With this budget you are spoiled for choice – there are a lot of genuinely unique things you can find in Europe.
It is rarely about the budget you have. And no-one will ever check how much you spent.
There are so many things out there. For each type of product or gift idea you might have there will be dozens or, sometimes, hundreds of makers. But some of them really stand out. Some of them are in high demand. And some of them feel like a great discovery. That is what this website is about. To help you make your own discovery of something truly unique.
It is amazing that even every day item can be exciting. We all had something that we loved owning and using. For me, for example, it was a school backpack I bought on holiday. I still remember it with a smile. We all had those moments. We all loved them. And I hope that my ideas will help you find them again.
