Vegan badges, cards, & stickers 5th April 2021

The V Spot sells a lot of food — but not only! We also have a range of cute, eco-friendly, and of course vegan badges, stickers, and cards:

Badges

These badges are made with a wooden backing, and plastic-free mylar coating made of corn-starch — meaning the badges are compostable and can go in the recycling if you ever want to dispose of it. The badges are manufactured using solar energy.

See also: our very own ‘I found the V Spot’ badge!

 

Greetings cards

We stock a range of greetings cards, with adorable illustrations, from vegan company Plant Based Cards:

 

Stickers

Also from Plant Based Cards are these waterproof, vinyl stickers, complete with Dan from Plant Based Card’s illustrations and some ‘punny’ (and important) messages! Use these on your laptop, fridge, car, diary, phone, window, water bottle, or wherever else you might want.

 

 

Colouring books & games

Great for both kids and adults, this plant based colouring book would also make a great addition to home school educating children about the benefits of food health:

We also stock this vegan Snaps card game!

Refills available 15th January 2021

We offer refills on a number of bodycare and household products to help reduce the amount of plastic and packaging going to waste. Bring in your empty bottle (or other measured container) to our counter and we will refill it.

How it works

Simply bring your empty container to the counter and select which product you would like it filled with. You don’t have to have a container that’s the same as the product – we can refill anything. However, please make sure your container is clean. Preferably your container will:

  • Be rinsed out and clean
  • Be transparent – this makes it easier to fill
  • Have a wide opening – again, easier to fill
  • Be labelled with its volume. If you leave the original labels on your bottles, we can easily see how big they are (we can measure the volume if it’s not marked; it just takes a bit longer).
  • Have a secure, waterproof lid

It can take a while to refill large bottles, so if you prefer you can leave the bottle with us and we will refill it when the shop is quiet for you to collect later on.

Here is a list of product refills we offer (subject to availability):

Milk

  • Minor Figures Barista Oat Milk

Faith In Nature Shampoo and Conditioner

  • Aloe Vera
  • Coconut
  • Grapefruit & Orange
  • Lavender & Geranium

  • Sanitising Handwash: Lime & Aloe Vera / Geranium / Plum & Mulberry

Clara

  • Unscented Concentrated Washing Up Liquid

We are gradually adding more to our range so check back or ask in store if there is something you would like.

We can also supply entire 5 litre or 20 litre bottles of your favourite products, so you can refill yourself and save money. We have some in stock and we can order other products on request.

We’ve Moved! 29th December 2020

The new shop will have room for a much wider range of vegan and eco-friendly products including a much bigger chilled & frozen section, a bigger chilled cabinet for cakes and sausage rolls, a proper area to display the shoes and cosmetics, a bigger kitchen and store room so our staff aren’t constantly tripping over each other, and much more.
