A Bit about Blighty's

Blighty's

Hello everyone!

Blighty’s is an independent family-run gift shop. Proudly supporting British manufacturing since August 2017.  You can find our gift shop in the lovely village of Cranbrook.

I work alongside my sister Harriet, she helps attend trade shows and works in the shop on Saturdays        

I’m Camilla and I work in the shop full time and enjoy discovering talented makers & artists on instagram & at trade fairs.

We have recently collaborated with two of our makers to bring you 2 Blighty’s Candles & a Cranbrook Union mill pottery heart. 

Just remember to buy JUST A CARD and to keep supporting local and independent shops.

“If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought ‘just a card‘ we’d still be open”

The JUST A CARD campaign aims to encourage people to buy from Designer/Makers and Independent Galleries and Shops by reinforcing the message that all purchases, however small, even ‘just a card’ are so vital to the prosperity and survival of small businesses.

The campaign came about when Artist & Designer Sarah Hamilton saw the quote “If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought ‘just a card‘ we’d still be open” by store keepers who’d recently closed their gallery. This prompted a call to action! Designer/Makers and independent shops and galleries need a voice. People seldom realise the considerable costs involved in exhibiting at design shows or keeping a shop open. Stand fees, power, materials, wages etc need to be met before even a penny of profit can be realised. Running a shop is often a labour of love. Without dedication and passion, and crucially sales, it would be another boarded up eyesore.
