About Us

This is Ernie. A little big shop stacked full of thoughtfully chosen treats, drinks, food & curiosities…
Every single thing we sell has been chosen because in some small way it helps to contribute to a better world. We sell products that are kinder to people and the planet.
Choose to shop here & choose to support small economies, individual makers, fairtrade, social enterprises, organic producers, sustainability & reducing food miles.
You will find everything from unique gifts, speciality spirits, natural wines & craft beers to niche cooking items, organic veg, household goods & pantry essentials... We even have an apothecary of local herbal products both medicinal & luxurious! 
We are as independent as it gets and so are our neighbours... (Ernest CafeWildflowerCobalt StudiosFlea CircusNorthern RyeYoga TherapiesThe Biscuit FactoryOuseburn Farm, to name just a few!) We're easy to find by bike bus or foot, plus there’s loads of on street parking!
