We have been running our family business since 2011 and are located in The Narrows of the historic market town of Totnes, South Devon. Our business ethos is based on selling ethical products; these include fair trade, ethically sourced, recycled, locally made and UK made.  We spend a lot of time undertaking research about the makers and products before we stock them in our shop. We are always on the look out for new and contemporary looking homewares and gifts and by doing this we think that we have established ourselves on the high street as offering that 'something different' to the norm or latest trends. We received a Gold Award for Best Fairtrade Retailer - Multiple Products in the 2017 South West Fair Trade Business Awards.  We have also won Gold in 2015 and Silver in 2016.
