The World of Kitsch was started in 2009 as a way of me, Claire Spence sharing my charity shop finds & the weird and wonderful objects I bought to furnish my rather unusual home.




It's evolved in to an ecclectic site featuring inspiring new products, clever design, bizarre art, charity shop hauls & anything else I find to deem cool enough for my readers.


In 2010 The World of Kitsch won a Cosmopolitan Magazine Blog Award, which led to the opportunity of me becoming one of Cosmo's guest bloggers.

In 2012 I was a finalist in their Lifestyle category.


WOK went on to be a finalist in the Twitter & Blogging categories of the Northern Ireland Social Media Awards 2011.


In September 2011 I appeared on BBC Radio 6's Lauren Laverne Show, chatting about The World of Kitsch and blogging.
