Effie McLean is an independent store 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 blankets made in Wales, planet friendly clothes or the perfect bear made by the teddy bear experts.

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

In March 2022 we opened our new lifestyle store at 4 Delf Street in Sandwich (just around the corner from our children's shop).  We're really enjoying adventures in clothing for grown ups...we hope you like our new space!

We're updating our website as quickly as we can but please bear with us; the best way to keep up to date is to pop in and say hello.
