a truly artisan emporium

An inspiring & creative space.

Established by Lucy Simon in Bath, 2013.


Situated in an arty pedestrian street in the heart of historic Bath,  my shop sells my own careful selection of mostly handmade products, centred around nature-inspired illustrative design, across homewares and stationery. I work closely with my suppliers who are small businesses; individual makers, illustrators, ceramicists, artists and creatives located within a few hours of Bath, plus a few French brands unique to Bath.

The 'scent studio' in the middle of the shop showcases my own candle brand, Lucy Simon candles, which I make here, using soy wax and botanical oils for a pure, even burn.  Alongside the candles and perfumes we specialise in locally-grown, rarer varieties of plants and scented flowers, and we are an official stockist of David Austin roses. We sell hand-tied bouquets, posies and wedding flowers in our natural, garden style. Choose a fresh bouquet or select stems from our cut flower buckets. Many of our flowers are supplied same day from local growers.

Find out more and order, on our Floristry page.



The shop connects through to David Simon Contemporary Art Gallery

David has been a gallerist in London, Bristol and Bath, since 2000 and curates monthly-changing exhibitions of new works by his established artists with whom he works closely, on a long-term basis. View all works and information on his website. We also sell paintings and ceramics in the shop.



This is central to what we sell, how we choose and how we combine products, and we have so many conversations in the shop and gallery about colour, that we now have a highly qualified, specialist colour consultant among our team. We now stock the UK's top heritage paint company, Edward Bulmer Natural Paints, who specialise in using only authentic pigments and eco-safe materials in their formulations. If you are renovating a property, come and talk to us about colour throughout your home, and book a home consultancy visit.
