Small but perfectly formed
The Store. Established. 2016
In a Tudor building set back on a cobbled street in Godalming (As seen in the film 'The Holiday') you will find me, Gemma the founder of Wattle & Daub along with the brilliant Beverly, seamstress extraordinaire, making and creating (with the whippets and the wire fox terrier in tow).
A building steeped in history occupied through the decades by shopkeepers gone-by. We hear tales of a tearoom, a milliner’s, a florist, and of a bustling high street in an era now past. We are proudly independent and believe passionately in the joy that shopping in a curated bricks and mortar store can bring.
What We Believe
Wattle & Daub was created out of a desire to show folk that by layering objects which make you smile, start a conversation or that have you tell a story will create a home that is both curious and charming. We care about how and where things are made and we believe that every home (and business) should be distinctive.
The Bricks & Mortar Store
We take the business of shop-keeping very seriously. The chatter of creatives, coffee brewing, the art of curation, the scent of teakwood and tobacco wafting, visits from our four-legged friends, the sound of French jazz and all those imparted opinions.
A visual feast, curated by colour displaying objects for the home created by makers or sourced and salvaged by us. A place to inspire.
As well as our physical space we do have an edited collection of pieces for sale online.
If you are passing, please do pop your head around the door. We would love to see you.
Open. Tues-Sat. 10-5pm. Church Street, Godalming, Surrey, UK
