Nicola is a qualified children's shoe fitting specialist and carries a wide range of high quality European made shoes from Young Soles of London, Petasil and Froddo, ( from 2022 the shop will be a Camper stockist too).
Opened in February 2020 by owner Nicola to provide a joyful shopping experience for customers looking for sustainable ethical products for babies and young children. Many of the products stocked are made in the UK by small mumpreneur businesses that share a commitment to sustainability. One of Nicola's brand pillars is that of supporting small, British, sustainable and unique.
Nicola also designs and makes her own sustainable brand, Sea Whistle. Made from linen and Liberty prints in styles that are timeless, comfortable for play, roomy for plenty of wear and made for longevity so each piece can be passed down and along. Clothes are cut out on a table made from Hastings pier wood, the very pier where Jimi Hendrix played, sewn in the home of Whistler's Mother on top of the hill where Hastings Castle was built after the famous 1066 battle of Hastings. Sea Whistle clothing truly is made where history was made!
