Nestled away in the heart of Devizes, Beeze's bricks and mortar shop. A gift shop proudly supporting handmade and independent small businesses.
That's me there in the rainbow dress 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 hobby business, 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 are proudly now home to ranges from almost 100 small businesses!
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 branding and launched Little B's, a childrens clothing and gift shop, our Sister business. 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.
In August 2021, in the midst of a global pandemic, we decided to take the plunge and set up Little B's in it's very own shop, which just so happens to be next door to Beeze's!
Generally you'll find Laura, Sarah or myself in the shop to help you.
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.
