Welcome

To our lovely customers; thank you so much for your support over recent months, it really has meant a lot that you've been keeping it local and shopping online.
We're continuing to trade online during lockdown offering free local delivery for customers within four miles of the shop or standard delivery (Royal Mail) for those further afield. 
If you have any questions, or if you'd like to find out, more please don't hesitate to contact us.

Wishing you all the best for a happy and peaceful 2021.
Yvette and Nick

 Effie McLean is an independent store in the historic town of Sandwich, Kent.

Opened in 2018 and run by Yvette and Nick, the shop is named after Yvette's great, great Aunt Effie Mclean, from Glasgow.

“We enjoy working with people who have a story to tell and an authenticity behind the products they produce. Whether it’s throws made from recycled plastic bottles; gorgeous organic cotton kids clothes; sustainably made wooden toys or the perfect bear made by the teddy bear experts.

We try to bring together an ever-changing mix of original products to make the shop an interesting place to visit.  We also love it when you find exactly the right gift for the right person; it’s the best feeling and we hope that’s how people feel when they leave the shop.”
