Little Blue Budgie
Muddy Says: When a shop champions Scandinavian design wa-a-a-a-y before the rest even uttered the words, you know it’s special. Whether shopping for quirky home pieces, furniture, lighting, gifts, or gifts to yourself, Little Blue Budgie is a little Totnes treat.
What is it about Totnes (apart from that hill) that makes you want to slow the pace down, take time to look around and covet nice things? Fortunately Little Blue Budgie, right in the heart of its quirky High Street, is there to feed your indulgences with its gorgeous home shop.
Beautifully laid out and always changing, you’ll find a brilliant mix of Scandinavian furniture, complemented by work from British artists, sculptors and craftspeople, many of them local. With an ethos of sourcing wherever possible (but not exclusively) from local artisans and studios, the signature look is retro and very funky. It’s a failsafe option when you’re searching for a special gift, feature piece of furniture or finishing touch for the home.
You won’t just find the pieces in the shop, either; check out the website, or give the shop a call for mail order. With over 30 years’ experience in sourcing stand-out pieces for customers, the owners are well-placed to help.
