Welcome, we're an independent store in the historic town of Sandwich in Kent. We love what we do and we're lucky enough to work with a really brilliant, friendly team. You can find us around two sides of a corner in the centre of town, at 4 Delf St and 3 Market St.

A bit about us

We opened our first shop in Market Street in 2018. Despite coming from a family of shopkeepers it took us a while to take the plunge into retail, but we're so glad we did. The local community is fantastic and we’ve been made to feel really welcome.

Effie McLean is independent; which means we take time to carefully source every item we sell in store. In 2022 we expanded the business into womenswear at 4 Delf Street.

In case you wondered, Effie Mclean is the name of our Great Great Aunt, from Glasgow. She brought comfort and joy to the family and we hope you feel the same when you visit us.

Our opening hours are 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday. We have a bigger selection in store than online, so if you get the chance to visit in person please do, we’d love to see you! We know that’s not always possible though so please shop online if it suits you better. We send parcels tracked by Royal Mail. Our click and collect service is also available if you're local or in a rush!
