​​​​​​Paisley and Friends is an independant shop owned and run by me, Claire Paisley, in the heart of St Leonards-on-sea. I opened in October 2016 after years of dreaming of being a shopkeeper, with a clear aim to support and buy from fantastic small companies and individual designer-makers in order to bring together the very best in creative talent, both locally and from around the UK.

I sell products that are well designed and well made, unique and affordable from jewellery and homewares to prints and knitwear.

I hope to be selling online next year, but even then I don’t think you can beat a good, real-life browse in a beautiful shop, so please come and visit soon.
