About Another Sky
Welcome to my shop Another Sky situated in the historic Somerset town of Somerton.
Opening this shop has been very exciting and scary all at the same time. I have never done anything like this you see, in my previous life, I was a secondary school teacher.
Looking for something to allow me to chat to people and be able to spend all day shopping and sourcing new stock and being creative in displaying it, bought me to the idea of opening a shop.
I wanted to open one in the town I live and grew up in, Somerton. It’s an incredibly beautiful town of ancient Saxon origin, thought to have been the capital of Wessex boasting an impressive butter cross in the market square and buildings as old as 600 years. Meaning not only do we have a strong local community but also it can attract tourists in the summer months.
The shop sells all the things I really like for the home and some great gifts too. I am passionate about handmade, fair trade items which are not just great quality, but good value too. I have suppliers from Scandinavia, Africa, India, in addition to products close enough to be made on the street where I live. The brands that I sell include Nkuku, Broste, Affari, Beefayre, Katie Loxton, Leslie Gerry and Joma Jewellery to name a few.
Take your time and have a look around, I’m sure you will find that perfect present for family or friends, or maybe a treat for yourself!
