Meet the founder
Hi I’m Rosa Rodrigues founder of ‘The Fancy Gift Company’. A gift shop with heart and a passion for all things gorgeous.
For many years I’ve had a passion for gifts and home décor, especially if they are from Fair Trade makers. A change in my personal circumstances made me rethink things and so I decided to dive in and start a new venture.
In 2017 I started off with Fair Trade home wares and house plants, selling them in our local markets and any craft fair I could get to. Soon after a few local creatives asked me if I’d sell their makes and so ‘The Fancy Gift Company’ was born. 2 years later we opened our little gift shop based in Winslow, North Buckinghamshire.
We now have over 40 small British based independent creatives working hard to make quality products whether it’s a hand made card or a one-off unique piece of jewellery and everything in-between.
Our Fair-Trade products are sourced from suppliers that ensure the artisans who make them, get a fair wage, ensuring there is no exploitation of children, men and women.
We pride ourselves in doing everything we can to help our customers and the environment. Where ever possible our packaging is reused and biodegradable. We work tirelessly to make sure that we don’t use any unnecessary packaging. So you don’t pay for fancy boxes to throw away.
BECAUSE WE BELIEVE THAT ITS WHATS ON THE INSIDE THAT COUNTS.
