About Us

We are a family run gift shop in the heart of Birmingham. We are all about gifts and family celebrations.

Owned and managed by Barry Purnell, we were founded in 1989. So we have generations of knowledge about how to make a celebration go with a bang!

We began as a market stall, selling chocolates and flowers and the occasional gift item. As we expanded, we found the market stall just was not big enough to accommodate all the things we wanted to sell and we moved into our present location in 1995.

Since then we have seen a whole generation of family staff members join us and now Barry’s daughter Shanice runs the shop on a day to day basis.

We now sell more and more personalised goods than ever before. So if you are looking for something a bit different or special, maybe for someone who is difficult to buy presents for, we might be able to surprise you!

Now, we also sell our items on line, but our High Street shop is still hugely popular and we have begun hosting a series of events, which have proved a hit with local shoppers.

This year we are hosting another annual jewellery sale, whereby we invite local craftspeople and jewellers to showcase and sell their handmade products in our store.

For a modest fee, you can participate in this hugely popular event. For more information please contact us and we will send the full information pack.

But this is not all that we do, we also hold workshops such as soap making and other crafting masterclasses. A full itinerary should be available on our website within the next few weeks.

So whether you are looking for gift ideas for your grandad or something nice for mum this Mother’s Day, we should have something in store that will take your fancy.
