Founded in 1859 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner, it started life offering ‘continental produce and imported wines’ – still a passion. Since the 1960s it’s been best known as a specialist in high quality gifts, including our own Ola Gorie jewellery. In 1997 we added designer clothes and accessories to the mix, reflecting owner Ingrid Tait’s background as a textile designer with her own Tait & Style label.
“Started on the basis that good service is the first base of efficient service, this house has continued that excellent policy down to the present day. Courteous and efficient service backed by sound experience, indeed make it a pleasure to shop here.” The Traveller, c1920.
