Situated in the heart of Howden at 11 Market Place, almost 3 years ago I opened the doors to 'Tom Loves' -- offering locals a carefully curated collection of affordable luxuries (bijou cards, contemporary giftware, beauty products & trinkets.) I've spent YEARS admiring independent artists and small Indie brands, who often create their treasures from the comfort of their own home. There is real beauty in products that are made with such love, especially knowing that so much thought has gone into their creation. Whether it's hand poured candles from Dublin, or dreamy chocolate made entirely by hand in Cardiff, my shop offers an array of lovely things with lovely stories behind them. At the start of 2020, in the midst of a global pandemic, I finally opened shoptomloves.com - allowing each and every one of you to shop with me, just as you would in store. I hope the experience is just as colourful and magical for you from the comfort of your own home as it is in real life.
To anybody that has shopped with me, from the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for choosing to shop small. I can't begin to tell you just how much it means.
