Started in the Jubilee year Happy and Glorious brings you beautiful design-led gifts and products for the home all lovingly and exclusively created in Britain.
My name is Kate, and I set up Happy & Glorious in 2012; the year of the Queen’s Jubilee and the London Olympics. There was a real surge of happiness and optimism in the air, and the kind of patriotism that we Brits are often a bit embarrassed to demonstrate.
I was also inspired by Mary Portas, and her challenge to re-ignite the British manufacturing industry. There are many wonderful things that we still need to import from around the world. But if we can create or grow it here, it’s nice to keep it local.
Our products are sourced from all over the UK. We’ve also just embarked our our own collection of products, designed and made by us in-house. There’s a real joy in getting to know the people that create these wonderful things;. It feels very warm and fuzzy to sell products that you believe in, made by people that you know and love.
In late 2015, we opened a shop in Park Mall, Ashford, as part of Ashford Borough Council’s regeneration scheme. In January 2016, we moved to a larger shop on Cranbrook High Street. Come and say hello if you are in the area!
We hope you enjoy our collection of British-made products, and feel pleased to know that you have supported many small businesses by buying them. Thank you.
Postage is free when you spend over £20. All our products are made in the UK to support Brit
