We are very excited to announce that you can now find a selection of Gosh! & Absolutely products at Rockpool Trading in the House that Jack Built on Plymouth Barbican. Our charming ‘Barbican’ lamp is in the perfect location, just a stone’s throw from the Plymouth Gin Distillery. The 1950s Wade Royal Victoria ceramic barrel had been converted to a lamp base around the time it was produced. We found this fun nautical fabric in just the right shade of blue and chose an oval-shaped shade to mirror the shape of the base. You can also buy our fabric covered lanterns for battery operated tea lights in vintage, designer and character fabrics. Plus there are several of our famous craft kits in their new shape (but just as cute) kilner-type jars. Rockpool also stock our badges magnets and rings made from fabric covered buttons.

There are loads of great local designers and makers at Rockpool Trading (not just us), so it’s the perfect place to pick up a unique gift or unusual home accessory – from a giant ceramic mug to skateboard bunting! The shop is based in ‘The House that Jack Built’ which is a fabulous arcade of independent shops that you must seek out if you are visiting Plymouth. Little kids love the winding corridors with hidden surprises and big kids love the fantastic array of bijou shops.

Gosh! & Absolutely can now be found in the excellent Devonport Live Cafe and Shop.  We are very pleased to have some of our products stocked alongside various other local artists and makers, whose attractive works adorn the walls of the cafe. Due to the fact that we have a physical outlet you can now buy lampshades in Plymouth without visiting Gosh! & Absolutely at craft fairs or shows. You can also find a selection of our vintage lamps, handmade cushions, tea-light lanterns and fabric craft kits. So to add a little colour to your life get down to Devonport Live Cafe and take a look! It is a lovely space in George Street, Devonport, west of Plymouth city centre. It’s tucked away from the main thoroughfare, but well worth a stop if you are in the area. As well as the opportunity to pick up fantastic handmade goods or beautiful artwork for your home or as a gift, you can grab a snack and a cup of tea. The kids can enjoy a well-stocked children’s corner and you can have hassle free lunch made from locally sourced produce. Unfortunately, the cafe is not open on Sundays, but don’t worry because this week (28th June) we’ll be at the Devonport Park Sunday Summer Fayre, just a stone’s throw away.
