Inspired and encouraged by friends and family I decided to open Collate in late May 2018.

Collate is about bringing together my skills and experience, curating a unique selection of products both old and new, resulting in something different and diverse. Being a shopkeeper allows me to utilise what I have learnt so far in my life in a creative and inspiring way.

I am really passionate about being an independent trader, and being able to bring an interesting and unique shop to the high street.


Collate is about bringing together what already exists in the form of carefully sourced vintage & antiques with locally made artisan craft, in a realisation that old and new really do work well together.
