Our super shops

I moved to lovely Sidmouth nearly three years ago and love living here, but I particularily want to thank the many shopkeepers for their helpfulness and friendliness.

I went into the Artisans shop on the high street recently for the first time and was very impressed with the lovely variety of crafts and their very reasonable price, and was intrigued to find out a bit of the story behind them.

I discovered that the owner, Billie, runs it on a sort of co-operative basis, renting a space to some 50 or so local crafts and art folk, hence the lovely variety and the good price. If you haven’t been in, I would thoroughly recommend it.
