About Us

Pretty Shiny Shop is an independent gift shop in N4, Finsbury Park, North London, and SW9 Oval, South London.  Our goal is to have unique, interesting and of course, pretty shiny things of good quality at attainable prices.

We continually strive to find new products to show our customers.  We focus on UK designed, ecologically sensitive and fair trade products as a preference. 

We carry a carefully curated selection of jewellery, greeting cards, candles and other lovely things that have caught our eye over the years. Jewellery is a personal passion of mine and I have worked hard to curate a collection of affordable sterling silver as well as quality fashion jewellery – all packaged up in our branded jewellery boxes upon purchase.  We even have a few lines that we create ourselves here at the shop – when I have time!  We are a small shop and are therefore very select with which the greeting cards we carry.  We focus on UK designed and made with beautiful design, kind words or cutting humour.  It is rare a customer leaves our shop with only one card and we are always on hand to help people chose just the right card for that special moment.  Our body products have the highest quality ingredients and come from small UK producers.  Our bags and purses are mainly vegan friendly, as are our yummy dark chocolate truffles!

Overall we try to work with small businesses and feel this allows us to offer something a bit different while supporting UK businesses.  As we are a gift shop it is our job to have a little something that would suit everyone – from new born to newly retired – and we feel we manage to achieve that most days!

We want to be the place you step into knowing you will see things you didn't know you needed, but now desperately do. Come in and satisfy your magpie sensibilities today or online shopping is also available for UK shipping.

Our doors opened in Finsbury Park in June 2016 and Oval in November 2021.

I've been yesterday buying few presents. As usual amazing customer service, full of great ideas. It's always nice to step in. Great place, great people.


Amazing little shop with a great mix of products perfect for finding a good gift


Found just what I needed to give as presents, or you can spoil yourself with some jewellery. They also sell brilliant greetings cards


Fantastic shop, we've bought lots of lovely things for pretty much every occasion you can think of. Staff are always great!
