Shop local with Shop Cornish

Shop Cornish is an online shop with Cornwall at the heart of everything it does, founded on a simple mission to connect the ‘lovers of all things Cornwall’ to the best makers, artists and producers that Cornwall has to offer. The founders of the site have been supporting businesses in Cornwall for over 15 years and creating this digital platform for makers and producers to share their wares was a natural step for our passionate team.

The members only platform is the marketplace to find a unique collection of Cornish gifts and products that are either made in Cornwall or inspired by Cornwall, its communities and nature.  When you buy via Shop Cornish, you’re helping our community to thrive as well as keeping Cornwall close to your heart. “Our members cover everything from clothing, homewares, health and beauty, pets and kids and so much more,” says founder, Andrew Weaver.

Jewellery from Cornwall celebrates coastal and rural influences, so from treasured beach finds to natural textures, you’ll find one-of-a-kind pieces that will last a lifetime. Some of the jewellers also love to work with their customers to produce one-off bespoke pieces for that very special occasion.

Artists migrate to Cornwall for the light, dark skies, the land and sea. Their collections include fused glass, Cornish landscape paintings, photography and ceramics of Cornish art. The stunning seascapes hint towards nostalgic memories of summer days while the modern art fused glass creations add a bit of coastal chic to any home.

Food and drink from Cornwall is also plentiful and over the years many Shop Cornish members have won national and regional awards for their produce. If you’re heading to the beach, did you know you can order pasties by post? Or, to host a barbeque Cornish-style, why not have a seafood hamper delivered direct to your door? Shop Cornish members also produce cheese like Cornish Yarg, with other foodie treats including chocolate, cream teas by post, and biscuits, all making great Cornish gifts or treats for a special occasion. Of course, you’ll also need something to wash it all down, and Shop Cornish can help with that too! Over the last few years, several microbreweries and local distillers have popped up in Cornwall and it has to be said,  their beers, ales, ciders and spirits are truly delicious. Cornish Gin is really popular in the Duchy and you can compare them all at Shop Cornish; from award-winning to small-batch, they really are all worth a taste test.
