We pride ourselves on sourcing and stocking the best independent British brands we can find, in fact finding them is all part of the fun, especially when we stumble across one on our doorstep here in Whitby.
The ethos and production methods of a brand are just as important to us as the aesthetics. Whether it’s eco friendly materials, recycled packaging or traditional craftmanship, we love exploring the stories behind the brands and the passion of those creating them.
