Unique shopping, for unique shoppers

The Courtyard Shop shines the spotlight on locally made, sustainable products, putting them at the heart of our shopping community. Each month, we try to vary our stock so that you have plenty of new and exciting gifts, crafts and creations to choose from. Meet Beth, the friendly face behind the scenes!
