About Us


After many years working in the sports industry and traveling the world with our respective jobs in Marketing, we were ready for a complete sea change and a new challenge.

We have always loved the Cotswolds and especially Winchcombe (David’s family live in Gloucestershire) and after spending five years in Australia, we moved here in 2011 with our daughter and in September 2011 set about renovating 19 North Street.

We wanted to create a shopping haven where customers are welcome to browse at their leisure. A place where you can choose from a wide array of gifts, homewares, cards and toys.  As parents, it was also important to us to open a shop that children can enjoy and parents can feel confident that their children are welcome.  We don’t profess to be retail gurus but feel quite strongly that the right products and realistic prices together with great customer service and a friendly welcome combine to make a wonderful shopping experience not often seen on the hight street.

After extensive renovations, we FINALLY opened on 24th November 2011, just in time for Christmas!  We really hope you enjoy Emporium, either on line or at the shop in Winchcombe.  We would welcome your feedback so if there is anything you think we ought to know please feel free to get in touch!

Emporium is the ideal place to pick up that perfect gift for somebody or even treat yourself, with a wide range of gifts, home and kitchen ware, books, jewellery and cards – there really is something for everybody. Emporium also has a dedicated children’s area, ‘Mini Emporium’, which sells toys and children’s books: the kids can even watch a movie whilst you browse the shop. Book tokens and a book ordering service are also available.

Store owner Angela Theobald stated, “Winchcombe is a great town to live in, with a really strong sense of community, and we have been made to feel very welcome. So many people who own other shops here have been incredibly supportive, which you don’t get everywhere and it has been amazing to see. We are really looking forward to working here and hopefully attracting people to the town to visit and shop.”
