Absolutely splendid
We were aware of this wonderful shop and on our day in Canterbury were able to visit. It is amazing.Several of the artistic designers were there, and they explained the concept . Beautiful items were available ...all the artists devote their time to provide exquisite jewellery, clothes, leather items, quirky face masks and many other delightful items. Not only is it a treat to see such an array of beautiful works of art, but there is a community spirit that reaches out to those who find difficulties in participating in social environments. Something for everyone.

Truly Unique

A unique collection of the weirdly wonderful!
I walked out with a collection of exquisite ‘subversion’ plate prints - Some of which may even have caught your eye in the window as you’ve strolled past... bad luck! These unique beauties are now mine!
Very much looking forward to displaying these at home.
Sublime customer service from the gorgeous Emma and her team of Distinguished and most honourable Ladies!
I’ll be back before you know it!

Amazing Find
Dec 2020 • Solo
The staff here are super friendly and really care about the products. It's a community shop where the designers effectively co-own the space together, and that feeling of community really shines through. Whatever you're looking for, you are guaranteed to find something to your liking and price range, with the knowledge that your purchase is helping to support all the designers. I find some really cute earrings and I honestly couldn't be happier with the service or the product. This hidden gem is definitely worth exploring!

Beautiful gift shop with unique Hand crafted gifts.
It was so special to meet the artist who made our purchase and who was able to tell us all about the sourcing and design of our beautiful baroque pearls. So good to support local artists.

Stumbled into this lovely shop whilst on a short trip to Canterbury. I think the idea of it is amazing and fun and I had a great time looking at all the wonderful displays from all the different businesses. Would definitely recommend a trip here if you’re looking to support independent businesses.
