Nestled away in the heart of Devizes, Beeze's & Little B's is a 2-in-1 bricks and mortar shop. A gift shop proudly supporting handmade and independent on one side, and a kids' shop on the other, with a focus on ethically sourced British design.
That's me there in the yellow with the big grin, Beeze, or Beth if you prefer - throwback to when we opened on 19th August 2017!
After growing frustrated with my tiny craft business (which was a hobby business, not what I relied on like so many others), opening Beeze's was my way of keeping a foot in the creative world, and meant I was able to reach a personal goal of having my own business whilst supporting loads of small artists, crafters and designers - win-win! From the very beginning we've housed 'Beeze's Traders', a community of local and faraway artisans who use the shop as a platform to show off their work to the lovely people of Devizes and our visitors. We started with 30 Traders, but now have over 60, and ranges from over 100 small businesses in total; we don't consider those we buy wholesale from as 'Traders' which is where the other 40+ have come from!
After much demand, and some water testing at the tail end of 2019, Beeze's had a bit of a revamp and shuffle-about in January 2020. I unveiled our new logo and launched Little B's, thus creating the 2-in-1 boutique that awaits you today! There was much demand from the local community for more gifts, and especially clothing, for babies and children. It's a little harder to source handmade for little ones due to the nature of health and safety as well as clothing production to a large scale, so we focus in Little B's on ethical and environmentally aware production.
Although the shops have separate entrances and shop fronts, from the inside you can access both shops, and we share a counter most of the time! Generally you'll find me in the shops being a general dogsbody but occasionally you'll find Nicola or Lisa, two of our Traders who are around to look after you when I'm not.
You can find us in the pretty Ginnel, just off the Market Place in the Market and Canal-side town of Devizes in Wiltshire. We share our lovely Ginnel with six fellow, award winning small, independent businesses and I'm so chuffed to be able to run my business within such a lovely community.
