The Wilford Village Garage Store was born in early 2020. After starting a successful card and giftware wholesale agency business in the East Midlands, Sarah found that she was getting a lot of requests from friends and family that lived outside the East Midlands to buy the products she represented directly from her.
Then came along the pandemic and Sarah also recognized a need for her local neighbours in Wilford Village to be able to purchase cards and gifts that they could collect in person (hopefully on foot) and be reassured that they were supporting mainly local and UK, designers.
All of the brands on this website are made by British designers, mainly local to the East Midlands. Sarah has personally chosen them for their quality, quirkiness, ethics, design and beauty. I hope you enjoy browsing the site as much as Sarah has enjoyed creating it! Happy shopping!
