"Going by the motto 're-design, re-cycle, re-love', online shop Ellie Ellie sells an ingenious collection of repurposed and 'up-cycled' homewares, lovingly crafted from pre-used vintage treasures. Everything on its site is either handmade or customised ensuring that no two products are the same. Our favorite items include sketchbooks made from old Ladybird children's books, teenage annuals and vinyl records, door signs made from wooden Scrabble blocks and Dominoes turned into fridge magnets"

"It is great to see the return of the humble paper chain.They are fun to make and an ideal way of occupying little hands on a chilly afternoon. I have a feeling that parents will fall in love with the handmade re-cycled vintage paper chains from Ellie Ellie that are crafted from vintage annuals, music score sheets, old maps or vintage comics. Terrific hung on a tree (being wary of placing near lights) or for adding colour to a child's bedroom"  - Handmade Recycled Vintage Paperchain
