A lovely find opposite Hampton Court
Oct 2019
This is a delightful shop selling all manor of gifts, cards, jewellery, house decorations, shawls, etc along with some larger items such as tables and lamps. At this time of year it also has some beautiful Christmas decorations too.

Very pleased with our purchases.

Dreadful Customer Service From The OWNER
Dec 2018 • Family
Having been a customer of this shop for many years I have always found the staff to be aloof however the owner is just RUDE, I shall take my business elsewhere with pleasure, Never have I been spoken to in such a manner. She had already been rude to another lady who was complaining to a member of staff, the woman clearly has issues with having to lower herself to serve us commoners! Off with her head I say !!!!

Awful customer service
Dec 2018 • Family
Much like the previous reviewer we have visited many times over the years however this evening the cashier (later to be told was the owner) huffed and said “Jesus Christ” when I asked for a delecate tree ornament to be wrapped in tissue!
Had I not had my children with me who had picked out decorations I wouldn’t have given this place a penny!
She then shouted at my mum when asked if she thought it was acceptable to speak to customers this way and we were told it was good that we wouldn’t be returning again!!
All infront my my 2 young children!!

The £200 I didn't spend - I couldn't wait to leave.

I've been to this shop about a dozen times, over the past ? 20 years.
To be frank, I've hardly ever bought anything; the shop 'assistants' [misnomer alert] seem to ignore customers.
My experience this week was so much worse.
My husband had seen some wraps he thought his sisters, and my mother, would like, as well as our neighbour [8, in total]. It seemed ideal, to do a lot of Christmas shopping in one, local shop.
I went in - no greeting. I looked at clothing - no offer of help, not even a smile in my direction. I'd clearly interrupted a conversation.
A man came in - just to say hello, rather than as a customer. He had a joke for them, he said, though it was "a bit racist". In fact, it was very racist. It was also about bestiality.
I felt thankful that I didn't have my mother, or one of the children, with me.
I asked the two assistants - who had shrieked with laughter at the 'joke' - if the shop were theirs.
"No," they said, abruptly. "I thought not," said I, and left.
I hope the owners, who seem to be local, spot this - whoever is 'minding the shop' for you is sending us away in droves.

Beautiful shop. Excellent selection of that 'certain something' you know you have been searching for. You will surely find it
here. Pleasant, helpful staff.

Up market souvenier store and more

Interesting items to take home after a visit to Hampton Court, or as gifts for friends and family. It is more interesting than many and reasonably priced. If driving, park in East Molesey or if visiting Hampton Court in a car, pay a visit before leaving the HCP car park.

Disappointed
May 2016 • Couples
This is a lovely shop. My husband and I were on our annual visit to UK. I found an item that was perfect for my little granddaughter's birthday. I did not have my MC card with me and when I returned with it they were closed. We were leaving the next morning. I called from home (U.S.) hoping to purchase the item or get info as to where I might purchase. The lady I spoke with could not have been more rude or dismissive. If you see something you like, buy it right away. They don't need your tourist $ and are not going out of there way to help. Poor customer service.
