“" A watering hole" but not in a desert near Brading!”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

I have written before but I am writing again as I believe that anyone that has missed this experience has really missed something special. The product range changes continually, then merchandised beautifully, the price range suits all, the staff are excellent they care, they assist, they smile and are talanted and happy. The main man is out with his staff guiding them through their tasks, talking with customers (not at) listening to their comments and enjoying the part he plays in buying his products, and talks highly of his suppliers. . . . . mabe thats why his staff are happy! Retailers in the bigger world should take note. Now "the watering hole" excellent selection of food, plentiful, freshly made and served by lovely staff. I often pop in for a lunch but do end up buying "a little something" I can not sign off without saying something about the furniture, it is "wooderful", beautifully crafted, a little different and affordable. For me there is always something to buy, to look at, get ideas from and enjoy. So for those who have missed this experience you need to try it, for me I will be back! !

“lots of unusual gifts”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

An amazing array of decorative items. There is a small, but good coffee shop, which serves lovely cakes. For interior decorating, gifts for the special occasion, or merely a, indulgence for yourself, to will find something to please in this wonderful emporium.

“Very interesting store”
Reviewed 7 December 2013

There is so much in this shop which was I the resting. I wanted some silk flower, and saw an advert in a free mag for IOW. Well I am so pleased I went to this store, they have the biggest variety of silk flower of good quality and reasonable price I have seen. I bought quite a few flowers I had been looking for, for example velvet roses, really good small orchids. I might even buy some on line (usually I would be worried about the quality but what I have already bought is good) . Well worth a visit if you are on the Isle of Wight

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 November 2013

We visit Oasis every time we travel to the island. There are lots of unusual items, quite often we have found at very reasonable prices! This was the first time I had visited when they have had their Christmas selection out, and there were lots of beautiful items. There is a wide variety of furnitures, ornaments, paintings, wall art, fashion items such as scarves and jewellery, bedding and soft furnishings, scented candles, artificial flowers, and more! Excellent for gifts, and the staff are always very helpful and friendly. The cafe serves excellent food and drink, with larger portion sizes.
Well worth the visit!
