|Friedrich Nietzsche Quote Print by SnowdonPrints|
Many famous authors and thinkers were also obsessive walkers so my first choice is this apt Friedrich Nietzsche Quote Print by Alexandra Snowdon at SnowdonPrints in Manchester. It is available in a choice of three different sizes and four different colours Alexandra started out as a graphic designer, but then retrained and found her niche as an illustrator. All the lettering and illustrations for her prints are created by hand before being printed either by silkscreen or a giclee printer on Alexandra's kitchen table.
The Friedrich Nietzsche Quote Print is for sale from £12 for the smallest size, plus shipping.

|I Like Your Stile by ClareCorfieldCarr|
I love the humour of this walking themed greetings card which would be ideal for outdoor-minded friends or relatives on many occasions as it is left blank inside. I Like Your Stile is inkjet printed from an original drawing by illustrator ClareCorfieldCarr who lives in Conwy. Clare draws all her illustrations by hand using fineliner and inks and then works into them digitally. She says, "I'm a very silly person at heart which reflects very much so in my quirky greetings cards range."
I Like Your Stile is for sale at £2.95 plus shipping.
|Chestnut Walking Stick |
The Chestnut Walking Stick is for sale £45 at plus shipping.
|Walkers Zipper Pull by ThimblesnObjectDart|
My final choice is the tiniest of the five and I think would make a fun addition to any hiker's outfit. This Walkers Zipper Pull is made by ThimblesnObjectDart who are based in Worcester. They cast their detailed motifs in pewter which is then antiqued and hand polished before the zipper pull itself is attached. The back of the motif is flat and hollowed out so it won't weigh its wearer down on those steep hills!
The Walkers Zipper Pull is for sale at £5.99 plus shipping.
That's all for my February Etsy Finds. I hope you love these items as much as I did, or at least they might inspire you to go for a walk!
Happy Valentine's Day for tomorrow
