Meet Soemeh, the woman behind Striking Moon. She is park skater and former Roller Derby player. 3 years ago she started her own decoration brand, Striking Moon, featuring unique handmade homedecor pieces, for the lovers of the dark side of nature.
Today is Small Business Saturday! While we've been running Sucker Punch Skate Shop for 8 years now (OMG!!), we are still a small business. Pretty proud of that too. With a small business you know who you are supporting. And as Soemeh (read more about her below) said today: 'When you buy from a small business, an actual person does a little happy dance'. After all these years, I still do.
But enough about us! I want to introduce you to a series of cool skaters who run a small business too. I'm sure you'll be surprised by some, inspired by many and hopefully you will be interested in supporting their business and make both your lives happier *insert happy dance*.
Here we go with our first episode of: Our small business friends.
Terrariums, glass globes and antique boxes with skulls, plants and crystals.
The products I make for Striking Moon represent the duality of nature: I want to share the fragile beauty of the effect that time has.
All my products are either extremely old or have been ethically sourced, such as roadkill, hunter dumps, things that have unfortunately been killed as pests or passed away naturally. I don't accept killing living things for the sake of art or decoration. Instead, I like to think of it as a second life, a beautiful resting place for those animals their remainings.
