Our story so far...
The Soar Trading Co. Store is the sister shop to Soar Tackle, established in 2009. Run by husband and wife team Scott and Kath. The store has evolved over the past few years into a small haven for local and UK made goods with sustainable and ethical shopping at it's heart.
The relaxed, country themed shop is full of interesting items, ideas and styles for the home and gifts. Most of which we source from 'exclusive to us' local artisans and then we add hand picked items from UK based companies and manufacturers. Our range has grown to include beautiful greeting cards for all occasions, Soy Wax natural scented candles, palm oil free soaps, wish bracelets, charm necklaces, mugs, socks and much more!
Katharine describes herself as "naturally greedy", so of course food has made it's way into the gift shop. First came the local made chocolates, followed by local honey from just down the road at Whatton Apiaries, chutneys and pickles from Folwell's Preserved, Kegworth and gorgeous Rapeseed oils and hedgerow vinegars from Peacock Farm Muston and the richly scented Spice tins from The Spice Kitchen. Check out her blog for recipes and stories from the shop.
Our themes change along with the seasons, from embracing the outdoors during Spring and Summer, to keeping cosy in front of a roaring fire through Autumn and Winter.
We are all about making it easy to shop small and support local businesses.
We hope you enjoy our shop and look forward to seeing you soon!
Katharine, Scott and Leon
