Handmade business selling at Walter & May

About Us

A big hello from Walter & May!

Beautifully British design

We have a team of magpies searching for the best of British creative businesses and makers to bring you a gorgeous selection of gifts and home wares  to wow!  Everything you see here is designed and made by our growing collection of designers and makers in the UK.  Working endlessly to bring you new designs and super gorgeous products whilst simultaneously practising their happy dance for when their products are making their way to their new homes!

Walter & May was founded by me,  Beth Elsdon, chief magpie at HQ after meeting so many amazingly talented designers who had neither the time nor self promotion confidence to really sell and market their beautiful products.  I found some real hidden gems of British design I just had to shout about and share.

We work closely to support our makers and designers as much as possible with their own businesses.  We know running  business is tough, around family life, full time jobs and that desire to design the next product!

Your personal shopper!

We love to get to know our customer and what they look for in a unique gift and because we are super nice, we will even help you find that perfect gift.  If you can't immediately see what you're looking for, fear not for help is at hand!  Drop us an email at info@walterandmay.co.uk with your wish list and we will pair you with one of our businesses for a commission and super special gift.

So go have a little browse and discover something beautiful.  A just because necklace, that cushion you didn't know you needed ( but you really do! ) or a gorgeous and personalised gift.


Much love
