Based on the bustling Mill Street in Bideford, North Devon, Sunshine and Snow is an independent gift and homeware shop stocking colourful and unique products appealing to all ages. Their eclectic and inspiring store is the place for essentials around the home and truly unique gifts.
Sunshine and Snow have recently won the award for Devon’s best gift shop!
Formerly known as 'Ian Snow Ltd.', India renamed the store when she took the business over; following in the footsteps of her Dad. As the home-brand, India stocks a number of Ian Snow items in-store, amongst many other independent brands.
The name itself - Sunshine and Snow - effortlessly describes the colourful, stylish and unique brand. From clothing and sofas to bath bombs and luxury matchsticks, the store boasts two floors of homeware heaven.
Featuring collections from HK Living, Nordal Interiors and Rice - to name a few! - Sunshine and Snow is a space for inspiration and happiness. The space itself is bright, open and welcoming; India believes shopping should be an experience where shoppers can enjoy walking into an independent shop instead of buying online.
India has always been heavily involved in the business, alongside her sister. They would often travel to India as a family. It was here, in the 60s, that India's father fell in love with colourful homewares and handicrafts. Inspired and fuelled by a passion for design, Ian opened a shop in Wales, where he lived at the time.
With a love for interiors and contemporary giftware, India has found a niche; offering distinctive, vibrant lifestyle items, clothing and gifts.
Strongly supporting the plastic-free movement, Sunshine and Snow place great emphasis on sustainability and are working towards being a zero-plastic brand. Sourcing items from an array of different independent brands means that each piece has it's own story; the store is a treasure trove of gems.
With plans to add a Café - whilst making use of the large garden area - Sunshine and Snow is the place for local coffee, homemade cakes and a true shopping experience.
