Ruth Slade is one of the fearless leaders behind Flourish Handmade. We met officially for the first time during our visit to that very market. Ruth spent the entire day graciously introducing all the stall-holders, after organising the promotion with Think Tasmania. She does have her own small business to run as well; we thought it might be nice (and fair!) to introduce RES Designs to Think Tasmania readers.

Presents and Gifts; Souvenirs and Mementos

For those that seemingly have “everything” when their birthday or Christmas comes around, there’s always a named footy mug or a wine glass. Custom orders are more than welcome. Everything can be personalised to suit the individual and the occasion. All items are dishwasher safe.

The RES Designs business is based in Hobart, but Ruth is willing and able to post items world-wide. A courier will deliver carefully-wrapped orders, and insurance is included in the postage price. Local pick up is also available, and customers can arrange a time to browse the range in person, only 15 minutes north of Hobart.

If you’re a fan of her work, you’ll be pleased to know Ruth has offered a prize for Think Tasmania readers from RES Designs. The details will be published next Monday, all things going to plan! We don’t want to give the game away, but the prize may (or may not!) involve Santa.
