Effie McLean is a proudly independent store, run by Yvette and Nick, in the centre of the historic town of Sandwich.

"We opened Effie McLean in 2018. The shop is named after Yvette's great, great Aunt from Glasgow.  Effie McLean was much loved, bringing comfort and joy to her family - exactly the qualities we hope you feel when you visit our store.

We enjoy working with people who have an authenticity behind the products they produce. Whether it’s throws made from recycled plastic bottles; planet friendly kids clothes; sustainably made wooden toys or the perfect bear made by the teddy bear experts.

We really hope you enjoy having a browse, if you have any questions at all please don't hesitate to contact us."

Yvette and Nick

We're open from 10 - 4 Monday to Friday, 10 - 5 on Saturdays

PS: We continue to trade online, offering free local delivery within a four mile area, a click and collect service from the shop or standard delivery (Royal Mail) for those further afield.
