“amazing shop!”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

This little shop is probably one of the nicest in Marlborough. With wide range of products, that you won't find anywhere else! Yes it might be a tiny bit expensive but you do pay of the quality you buy. People working there are always very helpful and kind.
You must visit this little shop during december month, when their magical "Christmas Shop" opens upstairs. Beautiful vintage toys, christmas decorations, tableware are truly one of a kind!

“Cracking Venue”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

Recently visited Marlborough and popped into the Merchants House, the staff were very helpful and kind. The range of goods in the shop were superb, some unusual and tasteful, something there to suit all budgets. Best gift range outside London a refreshing change from most of normal items you see in this type of venue. Thank you came away with lots of novel birthday goodies!!

“So much to offer”
Reviewed February 6, 2013

This shop has a very wide range of wares which makes interesting browsing and you know the profits are going to a worthwhile cause - to restore the historic house to its former glory. Go between April and October and take a tour of the house and garden.

“tacky christmas shop”
Reviewed December 9, 2012

This is really just another shop on Marlborough high street though it seems to sell its mixed wares of the tacky and very expensive.
Not really worth a visit and has little to define it over the other shops in the high street.
