Stockist Profile – Mockingbird, Abergavenny

Welcome to our second profile in our Independent Stockist Series. In this post we’ve been chatting to Ria, about her gorgeous store and all things local!

55A Frogmore Street
Monmouthsire, Wales

Introducing Mockingbird, a beautiful gift shop located in our hometown of Abergavenny.
Ria opened her gorgeous store in 2016 after making a huge career change. Ria runs her store with her super Mum and lovely staff.

“We’ve built up a brilliant customer base over the 3 years we’ve been open, and we’ve been reliably informed there’s ‘always something different in here’. We are stockists of local artists and makers of lovely things which is a major selling point for us. We aim to supply gifts and homewares and brilliant cards that you wouldn’t find elsewhere.”

“ We first saw Brit-Stitch in another store and loved them straight away! They have proved really popular with our customers who LOVE the fact they’re made in Abergavenny. That’s a really important factor for my customers and makes them come back, knowing what they’re buying is a high quality, locally made product. Our best-selling Brit-Stitch product is the Milkman, although, all products sell well!”


I’m sure Abergavenny is on your list of places to see if you are visiting Monmouthshire this Summer. Or maybe you are from Abergavenny and didn’t know you could buy our bags locally. Drop in and see Ria’s beautiful gifts celebrating local makers and all things lovely! Open 10-5 Mon to Sat (minus the occasional school run! ?)
