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!
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!”
