Handmade Soapbox Cart From Normann Copenhagen


Normann Copenhagen’s modern version of the classic soap box cart is a brightly colored heirloom.

Even though it’s a very clean cut and modern looking cart, they’ve still kept some of that lovely home made vintage look by using details like skew boards and headlights.

Normann Copenhagens Soapbox Carts are hand made in Denmark and can be purchased at Wannekes for the exclusive (slightly expensive) price of 2400.00 EUR ~ around 3500 USD. (Product discontinued).

Win a Custom Made Wooden Rocking Horse

The GiggleBrush Designs store is filled with beautiful furniture, bedding and decor for the childrens bedroom. They carry beautiful products by Bebe Chic, DwellStudio and Caden Lane, amongst others, but what caught my eye, when I stopped by the website, were all the cute custom made products they offer for children.

They have a great selection of custom made furniture, toys and decorative items and all their products are hand painted using non-toxic water based paints and sealants. Many of the bedding companies, from which GiggleBrush Designs carry bedding, lets them copy their patterns, and this allows them to make custom made products that matches the bedding you find in their store!

Amongst the custom made GiggleBrush Designs products you’ll find are drawer knobs, picture frames, letters, step stools, wall shelves and toys. My favorite custom products in the store are the rocking horses, which can be custom made with the kids name painted on the side of the bow rocker.

There are several different rocking horse designs to choose from and I’m especially fascinated by the Plaid Rocking Horse and the Pastel Rocking Horse. Both have fun patterns and bright colors that will stimulate the child’s brain. The rocking horses cost between 119.95 USD and 179.95 USD.

If you’re thinking of getting a custom made gift for a child this Christmas, you should keep in mind that the delivery time on custom made products is longer than on other products, so you should order in good time!
