The Little Shop of This & That was founded by Ben and Sam, a couple who wanted to give the little island they live on, a little shop that would house the BIG ideas they had. In March 2019 the doors opened and the dream was reality.
As well as stocking Sam’s own handmade items they also rent out shelves to local craftspeople to enable them to reach a wider audience than is normally possible through craft fairs.
Ben and Sam were also keen that the shop should have a plastic free ethic and have a low carbon footprint. All bags used in the shop are paper, the handmade wax melts are wrapped in wax paper. This was on their mind from the minute the shop started taking shape and all the shelves and display tops were made by Ben with reclaimed wood.
They hope that the shop will continue to grow and develop into the go to place for people to buy gifts for all occasions
