Looking for a special gift this Christmas or want to revamp your home or wardrobe, head to Kindle House, the must-visit store for effortless relaxed style.
Kindle House, the lifestyle, interiors and fashion boutique opened at the end of 2010 and is nestled among a small parade of shops on Commercial Street in Ystradgynlais. Voted as one of the top independent stores to visit in Wales, Kindle House really is a little gem in the upper Swansea.
Following the success of Kindle House, owner Emma Purvis, launched a second store in Mumbles back in 2015. “We see the Mumbles store as the little sister” she says. “It offers a hand selected, capsule collection from our full rage at Ystradgynlais”.
If you’ve not visited the flag ship store yet, you’re in for a treat. The large Victorian ‘house’ is totally transformed for Christmas, with each room decorated in its own individual style. A lot of careful consideration goes into the story of each room, and the recent transformation doesn’t disappoint. This year they have 4 new themes, so whatever ‘Christmas look’ you’re going for, they’ve got a decoration to suit.
You’ll also find a fantastic selection of Christmas gifts, from blow the budget paintings and covetable jewellery, to little stocking fillers and Secret Santa treats. Don’t worry if you’ve got a tricky person to buy for, the team are on hand to help you select the perfect gift or there’s always a Kindle House Gift Voucher, available in any nomination and valid at both stores.
A number of exciting new clothing and accessory brands have been added to the upstairs boutique for Winter, including a collection of seriously stylish dresses and jumpsuits from Onjenu. The London based brand has several celebrity followers including Helen Mirren, Kate Garraway and Emilia Fox. The metallic Laurie jumpsuit is sure to be a favourite for the party season!
If winter walks are more your thing, treat yourself to a pair of Alpe boots, a Normann coat, a pretty Powder scarf and you’re good to go. Just make sure you’ve got one of their Melin-Trewgynt blankets waiting for you with a cup of delicious hot chocolate when you get home.
One of the most well-known brands at the Ystradgynlais store comes all the way from Italy, Nomination Jewellery. Founded by Paolo Gensini in Florence in the 1980’s, Nomination has become a world leader in gold and stainless-steel jewellery. The Composable bracelets come in stainless steel, gold, rose gold and black.
Hidden inside each link is an exclusive and innovative spring mechanism that allows you to create endless combinations. A composable bracelet makes the perfect gift as you can add to it over time. You can show who you are, share your emotions and celebrate your experiences with this unique jewellery collection.
The run up to Christmas can be a stressful time of year. There’s the gifts to buy, stockings to fill, the Christmas party that needs an outfit, the little thank you gift for the teacher, the tree that needs decorating, the table that needs setting. Take a moment this winter to breathe, to live in the moment. We’ve got it covered this Christmas, at Kindle House.
