home: featured [ FoundLand ]
Our favourite new find is FoundLand store. Quirky, original and full to the rafters of gifts and homeware that you would be hard pushed to easily find elsewhere.
Think of us as your upmarket general store, with an international goods aisle and a smutty top-shelf thrown in for good measure.
We’re Sarah and Arthur, and we run the emporium from London town. Having earned our crusts in retail, running the Monocle webshop and sourcing for some of the major gallery shops in London, we have the inside knowledge on where to find the best gifts across the globe. The hard-to-find, the new releases, the limited editions, the stuff which no-one else has. We pride ourselves on selling exclusive products, and we stock only goodies which we have and we want in our own lives. From traditional Japanese brooms to brassy Italian stationery to wooden spoons hand-carved in an English forest, we’ve found it and now you can find it here too.
