Introducing "Village BN3" – a new retail concept driven by community empowerment.

Remember a time when you would say, I’m popping to the village?
At our first store on Richardson Road in Hove, just some of what you’ll find will include daily wrapped seasonal blooms, plants. Need to post a card? You can choose from an amazing selection from local illustrators and pop it in the post-box right outside!

We have a collection of fine jewellery designed in house by me, affordable & colourful art prints.  Call by after the school run, we have pocket money treats for the best-behaved kids and if you need to bribe your teens, we stock cool skate socks. We have already expended our clothing edit and accessories.

Our curated selection of gifts and seasonal lifestyle products adhere to a set of values and every brand or product must tick at least one off our checklist: 

Made locally or in the UK, handmade, female-founded, independently owned, and / or socially positive.

Join us in fostering a vibrant, inclusive retail ecosystem.

Alongside all of this, we will have resident weekly creative workshops and monthly guest workshops all focussed on community karma. We want to be a meeting point for local sea dippers and are looking to collaborate with local businesses to create events. We want to nurture wellness and create a fun, joyful, easygoing space to come and hang out at and make friends.

Our longer term goal is to create a thriving franchise that will fit into a seaside, city or rural location that equips and supports local makers to thrive within their communities.
