Josiah & Co, Barlaston

Josiah & Co at World of Wedgwood was founded in 2021, aiming to put local Artisans on the map. Everything stocked in this shop-come-cafe has been crafted in Staffordshire, or by a maker from Staffordshire, including gifts, art, homeware, accessories, fresh flowers and finds for furry friends!

In 2023, the store expanded to house hot drinks and delicious bakes, welcoming humans and dogs all the same into their community space. The expansion also saw the addition of Lunar Storehouse, a farm shop by Niall Keating, selling fresh, locally sourced, high-quality goods; from dry-cured meats and dairy to pantry goods and preserves.

The shop oozes creativity, and is full to the brim of candles, jewellery, gifts and trinkets, fragrances, home decor, cards, sweets and more!

Keep it Local, Longton

Having ran their own markets and popup shops for the last couple of years, the guys at Keep it Local snapped up the opportunity when it arose to open up their first flagship store. Housing work from almost 70 local makers, the shop, at Longton Exchange, is a one stop shop for so many kinds of gifts and artwork.
