A new addition to Paddons Row, Here and Far is the place to go for unusual and eco-friendly contemporary gifts and homewares, plus unique upcycled furniture.
Owners Kat and Natasha source the majority of their stock from reputable fair-trade suppliers, bringing the traditional crafts and skills of overseas artisans from developing countries to Tavistock, while ensuring the makers of all their items have been paid fairly and work in safe, comfortable conditions.
As well as supporting craftspeople from ‘far’ away, a growing range of items are sourced right ‘here’ in the southwest or the wider UK, helping to support the local economy and giving an outlet for several local artists and craftspeople to sell their work.
Recycled materials feature heavily in Here and Far’s range: from recycled aluminium coasters and bowls, upcycled bike chain clocks and wall hooks, and recycled cotton waste paper cards and notebooks, to recycled iron windchimes, reused tin can model vehicles, and recycled glassware.
Recent additions include garden clocks and vegetable labels made from recycled plant pots and coffee cups by a Cornish-based company, and recycled circuitboard notebooks and accessories produced by another UK-based company.
Kat and Natasha also enjoy giving old furniture a new lease of life using Annie Sloan’s Chalk PaintTM, of which they are Tavistock’s exclusive stockist. Affordably priced, each piece is different, from grand country-style dressers to tiny side tables. Some pieces are also sourced from other local ‘upcyclers’.
Always on the look-out for new and interesting items, Here and Far’s range is constantly growing and changing, so it’s worth popping in regularly to see what else has arrived!
