Shop Small, Shop Salisbury! Check out our Indies for gorgeous gifts.

Updated: Dec 1, 2022

Over the past few years, many Salisbury businesses have shut up shop, but we're lucky to have a brilliant selection of Indies that are the backbone of our beautiful city.

To celebrate Small Business Saturday on the 3rd of December, we should continue to support our fantastic local independent shops.

So while considering your Christmas purchases this year, why not ditch Amazon and superstores in favour of experiencing the beautiful festive decorations and warm welcome you receive when you shop small?

We've listed below a few of our favourites. Each Salisbury business has a bricks & mortar shop and a website you can browse.

Salisbury High Street

You'll discover this fabulous shop on the High Street, nestling close to the Cathedral Gate entrance. Always beautifully decorated for Christmas, the gorgeous window display draws you into this fantastic shop.

When you shop small, you get that feel-good vibe you don't get from shopping in a big brand store. And supporting small independents means you are buying from a business owner that makes ethical decisions and has their customers' needs at heart.

If you choose to buy locally, it allows you to build great relationships that you don't experience in larger stores. Shopping small allows for a more positive and personal shopping experience, plus you are supporting your local community.

With the spiralling costs of petrol, food, heating our homes, and business premises, why not buy a bespoke gift from Artisans who produce and promote sustainable products and are part of our wonderful Salisbury community? Buying locally also minimises your carbon footprint.

For originality and choice, you can't beat our Salisbury Independents. Visit them and give them your support - you can make a difference.
