We love to shop in Ventnor, keeping local retailers in business is important to us so here are a few of the places we shop on a very regular basis and why we like them so much. It’s going to change on a regular basis so keep coming back to find out what’s new and what’s cool….. also what’s great value.

In the High Street, Paul and Dee McMullin provide fresh local fruit, vegetables, cheese and other local produce. its always fresh and seasonal and you will find produce that you won’t find in the supermarkets. Definitely worth wandering in if you’re catering for yourselves or just want some fresh fruit for a picnic or the beach.
Coastal Clothing in Pier Street has a fantastic range of clothing and household ornaments and pieces to brighten up both your home and you. Sarah is a wonderful hostess and has an eye for the right clothing and pieces that you will want to walk a way with. Go in for a browse and you may find yourself coming out half an hour later with a purchase, if not I’m sure you will have a smile on your face .
Preloved and Precious opened this year, renamed No 26 recently, to provide a new slant on furnishings and items for your home. Leanne has done a great job in breathing life into antique and tired furnishings and bringing them back to a new beginning in a cool trendy way to liven up your home. Great value and well worth a wander in.
