Exeter is full of independent retailers offering a unique shopping experience. From clothes to gifts, we have rounded up some of our favourites.
Head over to Fore Street and you’ll find Sancho’s Dress, a clothing store with a difference. Unlike many chain stores, the garments are all Fairtrade and are handmade to the highest quality using sustainable materials, making this a really innovative retailer. Offering clothing, accessories and gifts for both men and women, it’s a must-visit for those looking to shop ethically in Exeter.
Also on Fore Street is No Guts No Glory, a great place for independent shopping in Exeter. This eco-friendly store is a fantastic place for those who want to lead a more sustainable lifestyle. The shop sells a unique selection of gifts, art prints, house plants, greetings cards and books; all personally selected by its two dedicated owners. Coffee lovers will be delighted to know that it even has its own speciality coffee bar!
Are you a lover of vintage and reworked clothing? If so, you must head over to Sobeys on Gandy Street. There you’ll find a range of great quality, stylish garments at affordable prices. That’s not all; Sobeys even has its very own in-house brand, Nancy’s Boutique.
As well as a fantastic range of independent clothing stores, you’ll also find a brilliant array of gift shops in Exeter City Centre. Georgie and Flo has a great collection of ethically sourced jewellery, gifts and homeware on the conveniently located Paul Street.
