All About me :)

Over the last couple of years I, Black Sunshine, have gained a few more followers via here, Facebook  Etsy etc. And I am very grateful for all of your support :)

So I though I would use today's post to tell you a some more about me and my business.

I started Black Sunshine back in 2004 as a mail order 'shop' selling Gothic  alternative clothing. I received no funding or back up, although not through lack of trying.
A year later in 2005 I was lucky enough to rent a a bricks and mortar shop in Newport on the Isle of Wight. However in 2011 I decided to close my shop, due to the financial climate and general decline of 'real life' shopping.

While I was still at my shop I occasionally sold my handmade items (and my mums) and in 2005 I started to make synthetic dreads. So when I did close I decided to sell my handmade goods on-line, which I still do today,

Black Sunshine is still run just by little old me. Black Sunshine is my full time job and I love it. But I could not do it without the support of my family, close friends and of course, you guys :)

So if I do take a a day or so to reply to your e-mail or I am not open for custom orders please understand I am just a one girl army :)
