Contemporary Crafts for the Home by British Makers

The Merchant’s Table is a shop selling beautiful, hand-crafted objects for the home by independent British makers and artists, many from our local communities. Every object has a strong sense of the maker’s hand.
We seek work with a narrative running through it, a recognition of provenance and the influence of history and heritage craftsmanship skills. 

By selling only independent maker’s work, who responsibly source their materials, we celebrate a more sustainable and considered way of living.

Nominate TMT for the

House & Garden Independent Shop Awards

We would be really grateful if you could please nominate us for the House & Garden’s wonderfully supportive Independent Shop Awards.

“Wherever I go,” says House & Garden’s editor Hatta Byng, “I’m on the lookout for the one-off shop that will sell something I haven’t seen before or specialise in something a little bit off-beat, or simply be a beautiful curation of irresistible things and the reflection of an individual eye. That’s what the Independent Shop Awards are all about.”

Drawing on the expertise of House & Garden editors as well as their readers, the Independent Shop Awards will highlight 50 of the best small independent interior shops around the UK. We would love the chance to be on this highly revered list!
