New! Gingerbread Man Wooden Brooches

One last product for 2017 as my new Gingerbread Man wooden brooches have arrived just in time for Christmas.

My first set of printed wooden brooches have been really popular so I decided to add a couple of new ones when I reordered. The old laser engraved gingerbread men always sold well around Christmas and now they’re even more cute and colourful.

They’re also a good bit smaller, which makes them so adorable. I think they look so sweet together – the happy cookie and his sad bitten friend.
