Corsham Shop

A large design-led mini-department store full of fascinating, gorgeous things

A welcoming atmosphere, unusual products from independent makers and excellent customer service are central to the success of our store and make our job really worthwhile. If you’re looking for an interesting, well-priced gift that the receiver will adore, then look no further: we offer a wide range of choice, from homewares to accessories, jewellery, man-gifts, toys, stationery and clothes, plus quirky vintage items - from over 150 suppliers and makers.

Founded by former design historian, lecturer and author Nicola White, the shop and online store sell carefully selected, interesting goodies, some locally made, many hand-made, some vintage, some sourced in person overseas and some exclusive to us in the UK. With a great in-store cafe selling only home-made and often home-grown produce, it's become a hub for the local community and a real destination store.

Previous was born from a desire to offer the people of Corsham a place to buy the perfect present, without having to travel to nearby Bath. It also gave Nicola the chance to use her knowledge of design history and her earlier experience in retail. She knew the sort of store she wanted to shop in and set about creating it: somewhere welcoming, very well-priced, with excellent customer service, full of fascinating well-designed, unusual and useful products and as eco-friendly as possible - all set in Corsham's celebrated, beautiful High Street.

Why not combine a visit to our store with a (free) walk by the lake in Corsham's 300 acre parkland, laid out by Capability Brown in the eighteenth century, a stroll along the "finest high street in Wiltshire" (Pevsner), taking in the famous Alms Houses and Weavers' Cottages, or Corsham Court and its renowned collection of paintings? We are more than happy to recommend some of our wonderful local eateries too.

We love dogs, so you're welcome to bring yours for a visit - they might even feature as our social media 'dog of the day'! And don't forget to keep your eyes open for the famous peacocks that wander our peaceful streets...
