Elizabeth James

Elizabeth James (EJ) is a homeware, gift & lifestyle shop with a conscience.

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful” William Morris

This is how we approach what we put in the shop. I wanted to create somewhere that I would want to shop, with gorgeous ethically sourced pieces, that showcase independent designers and makers.

In doing this I accidentally made my own job really easy, it's very easy to chat to to people about products and people that have a story to tell and I love the look on their faces when they have bought things they truly love.

Well firstly I should tell you my name isn't Elizabeth (or James for that matter!), it's Jill. Elizabeth (and James) are my family middle names for generations. My children (As you can see in the picture,I have one of each), both have them too, so it seemed like the perfect name to call my shop. I'm very used to being called Elizabeth, so don't worry if you get it wrong.
