Jill Barrett
Store Director / Department Head of Homeware & Gifts
I’m so proud when I hear customers say, “What a lovely shop!” It could be down to our engaging staff, with a warm smile and friendly greeting never far away. It might be the expertise in abundance, with attention paid to what customers really want, and the no-pressure sales. It may even be our wonderful range of products and gifts on offer, beautifully displayed and always appealing. Whatever the reason, come and have a look for yourself, and see “what a lovely shop” it is!
Michael Grist

Every day is different, with new challenges and opportunities. The team spirit is fantastic and the sound of laughter is never far away! Plus I get to work for my wife Jill, though she is my boss! One of the best things about working here is the relationships we build with our customers, as we get to see them and their families grow. It's always a joy to welcome into our store customers both new and old, and to work with them to create a home full of joy and memories.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
