About us

 

I’m Maddy and welcome to my shop! The Mantel Store came about as I lost my own zest for shopping as more and more bricks and mortar stores closed due to the rise of online shopping and the buying in those remaining seemed to err on the side of caution (boring!). The same big brands seemed to be everywhere but I knew there were smaller designers and craftspeople making interesting things that weren’t accessible in one place.

Improving the ease for people to find interesting things was one item but the other issue to tackle was the ethical dilemma faced by us when we shop – what is the standard of living for the people making our things? Were the products made to last? To be treasured? Are the materials from sustainable sources? Is it still accessible to most people price-wise?

And so, with all this in mind, The Mantel Store was born!

Within is a collection of lovely things, some with a practical purpose and some just to look at on your mantelpiece and enjoy everyday.
