Congratulations to Vicky Streeter who is celebrating 40 years of “Four Winds”, the shop originally opened by her mother. In her impressive tradition of continually innovating, she is just opening a Facebook shop as well.
Here is what Vicky writes about “Four Winds”:
FOUR WINDS shop is a treasure trove full of fabulous fashion and fun things! As the name suggests, an eclectic mix from all over the world as well as made in Britain! Clothes and accessories, Mayfield Souvenirs, Jewellery, tradional and novelty toys and gifts for all. It is hard to describe as a boutique or mini department store. We go with the flow of fashion and fads, known to many for being different or having the latest styles with a difference.
The shop is part of a Grade II* Listed Building originally created in 1971 by Margaret M Brown, ahead of her time, embracing environmentalism, conservation, lifestyle and sustainability. Her daughter continues to run FOUR WINDS with the same ethos of commercial conscience giving a fair price to the makers and customers.
FOUR WINDS offers the individual the opportunity to discover an amazing choice for themselves or to give as gifts for others. We are able to give a personal service to offer advice on colour and shape when asked, without pressure which is a refreshing experience.
Our fashion labels offer a choice of styles ranging from petite to plus. Labels include Kushi, Bohemia, Ethnic Touch, Hot Body, Eastern Charm which have accessories like bags, belts and scarves. Tops continue to be the most popular from camisoles, tunics, Kaftans to jackets. Skirts range from mini to full length, everyday wear to many suitable for all kinds of dancing!
Gifts covers a selection of unusual and useful presents for people who have everything, traditional, novelty and activity toys, jewellery and much more! Through listening to customers and great suppliers we are able to source many innovative new products in quality and quantity to fascinate all ages! We look forward to welcoming you to FOUR WINDS in the future.
