Lots of my lovely pots have just been delivered to

Tyto Boutique 

3 Tidemill House, Discovery Quay, Falmouth, Cornwall TR11 3XP.

(Just next to The Shed, Falmouth, The Bottle Bank and opposite Square - Hairdressing, Rick Stein's Fish and The National Maritime Museum)

From left clockwise Louche London clothes in Tyto's current window display illustrated by Mellybee, the always fabulously styled Gemma busy tidying her couture rails (I'm a particular fan of her amazing orange hair right now), Nikki McWilliam's cushions on display with Mr Gingerbread by Mellybee and the big fabulous owl by Mellybee from the outside!

Go and check out this fabulous eclectic and wonderfully unique boutique run by by the brilliantly creative Gemma! 

I've already earmarked a list of great things for my Christmas list!

Gemma is doing a sterling job of championing British designed and made products from a whole host of great Cornish and UK based businesses. 

Here are just a few great examples:

Jinty Jones Swimwear

Beautifully quirky patterned swimwear designed in Cornwall from unique bespoke fabric made and printed in the UK and carefully constructed in Cornwall.


Couture Jewellery made locally by Nat Rigby from upcycled Skateboards.  Think upbeat colours and textures mixed with unusual images and shapes to make bangles, necklaces and a whole host of other inspired products.


Falmouth based Melanie screen prints her illustrations to make tote bags, cushions, cards, badges and soft Gingerbread Man dolls amongst many other products! (Mellybee is also responsible for that fab illustrated window display with the massive fabulous Owl!  She's a one girl creativity factory!)


Gorgeous luxurious candles, natural skincare and spa treats for everyone, made just round the corner by some super nice people here in Cornwall!

Nikki McWilliams 

Amazing must have biscuit cushions designed and made in the UK!! With winter fast approaching I'm definitely feeling the need to snuggle a custard cream! : )

There are lots more brilliant UK brands including Louche London's collection of divine floaty bold clothing and Silverstick's bold and unusual t-shirts, Valour & Valkyrie well designed knitwear, So Small Shoes cute teeny baby shoes and Emily and Fin stylish clothing!

Gemma also stocks some design classics from handpicked international brands like Marimekko who represent great Finnish style in fabric, clothing and ceramics. 

I dare you to come out of this shop empty-handed!!
