Our buyers have sourced some of the most beautiful, original gifts for our shop. Come and browse the exciting range of items including art-related cards, handcrafted jewellery that have been ‘reworked’ from vintage trinkets into lovely things, unusual ceramics from delicate ornamented porcelain to larger silk-screen printed dishes and sculptures made by glass artists with an international reputation. Not only is our shop unique because it is housed within a stunning contemporary gallery, but it also showcases handcrafted works from local and South East designer-makers, who are dedicated to providing the most eye catching and original pieces for you to purchase. The shop also stocks a range of quirky design-led items, including jewellery, pens, notepads and children’s craft kits.
So, if you are looking for a present which is personal, unique and hand-crafted or just a bit quirky, come and take a look at what’s on offer.
Gift Vouchers for The Lightbox Shop are now available to purchase. Available in denominations of £10 and £20, they are the ideal solution for when you can’t quite decide what to buy someone, giving them the opportunity to come and choose that perfect gift for themselves.
“I need to leave your shop! Too many lovely things I want to buy. Now I know where to go for buying presents. ”

“I thought it was one of the best shops I’ve ever visited in a gallery, if not the best!”

The Just a Card campaign is the brilliant idea of Sarah Hamilton and is supported by Mollie Makes and The Design Trust. Sarah started the campaign after reading the following quote from a shop keeper who had recently had to shut their gallery:
‘If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought just a card we’d still be open.’
As an artist and designer who also makes cards, Sarah knew how valuable every sale is, not only to independent shops and galleries which make our high streets unique, but also to their artists and designer suppliers.
The Just a Card campaign aims to encourage people to appreciate how invaluable every single purchase is. Every time you make a purchase from our Shop, you are not only supporting The Lightbox as a charity but also supporting our suppliers and the art and design industry as a whole. We hope you will support us and the campaign by using our Shop. Support the campaign on Twitter using #justacard and find out more about the campaign here.
