Lunchtime break from shopping
Nov 2016 • Couples
Called in today for a light lunch. The food was excellent,especially the home made soup,however this was let down by indifferent service from a less than enthusiastic waitress. The couple on the next table didn't get the food they ordered and we were overcharged for our lunch when we pointed this out it was rectified but not in a very pleasant manner. We will not be returning and would not recommend.

New coffee shop with a difference.
Jun 2015 • Friends
This shop is beautiful. If you are looking for a gift you will find something here for all occasions. There is now a lovely little coffee shop on the premises. You can sit inside or outside in the little garden area. There is a place in the garden to tie your dog while you enjoy a drink/snack. If you sit inside you will be surrounded by the unusual and beautiful items for sale. There is so much stock you can sit there for an hour and still not see everything. A lovely place to meet for coffee after a walk in Haslam Park.

This shop really is a hidden gem of Preston with easy parking and has such an aladdins cave of lovely gifts and scarves. We had a coffee, hot chocolate and scones all of which were very nice. Natalie is always very friendly and helpful. Well Worth a visit.

Great little place!!

I live nearby so this is a great little shop for me. The bonus is the lovely selection of hot and cold drinks and snacks. Very friendly and informal atmosphere and somewhere to have a relaxing coffee and browse the beautiful items that are on sale. Always great for gifts as they are so beautifully wrapped, (but I like to treat myself.)!!
My latest purchase is a beautiful large candle that has a subtle scent, taking pride of place on my fire place. You have to come along to see for your own eyes, a real little Aladdins cave.

I love visiting this little gift emporium! They have some truly beautiful items, one of my favourites at the minute are the friendship glass candle holders, they are gorgeous. The owner is very helpful too, if you go and tell her what kind of thing you're looking for and a price range she will advise on what products she has or will even order things in for you. If you're looking for unique items that are a little bit special then visit this local shop, you won't regret it!

Must visit this shop.
Feb 2015 • Solo
This shop has a lovely range of gifts and beautiful furniture/ornaments. From lamps, clocks. candle holders, mirrors, unusual ornaments to slippers and scarfs, This is a treasure trove of unusual and beautiful items to make your home look like you have employed an interior designer. There is so much to see that you can be there for an hour and still not see everything. The shop owner is friendly and very helpful. She will even make you a cup of coffee while you browse the catalogues. There are late night events and Sunday opening. A small example of the stock available is shown on their Facebook page. If you like the page you can be kept up to date with new stock and special offers. New stock arrives every week. Parking is available next to the shop and there is a large car park nearby in Haslam Park. Brilliant for buying gifts for weddings, baby. Valentine, Mother's Day, Birthdays, Christmas or just to treat yourself to something special for the home. Wish lists are available at this shop. So if you are getting married it's a great place to make a list of special wedding presents. Gift wrapping is available.
