So here's our story...we have run a gift business for several years and traded at large music festivals and Christmas events such as the York St Nicholas Fair and Living North.
We wanted to move into a more permanent home and as this is the area we have lived in for 20 years, we knew it had to be on Burton Stone Lane. This is our community and we cannot wait to work in the heart of it.
Like so many families, we have become increasingly aware of the damage that plastic is doing to our planet and have taken many steps to reduce our overall plastic use. Sometimes people know they want to use less plastic but just don't know where to begin.
We wanted to help with that.
We sold zero waste items alongside our gifts at festivals and it felt like a natural progression to bring those two elements into our shop here.
Effectively, this is TWO shops in ONE building... a gift shop with a zero waste lifestyle shop beside it.
When someone pops into the gift shop for a card or gift this often gives us the opportunity to talk about the zero waste shop; to introduce them to the concept and items they may never have considered and we think this can only be a positive thing!
We really hope you enjoy your time in our little shop. We hope we can make you smile and if we can help you in any way, please just holler!
