This festive shop is back for a second year, full of stylish and ethical goods that do good.

Online retailer Different Kind is opening a real bricks and mortar store this Christmas, stocking a seasonal pop-up with all the beautiful and ethical products shoppers will usually only find on the Different Kind website.

The pop-up will open for a fortnight from Monday November 28th, until Sunday December 11th, at Number 14 Market Place, Woodstock, Oxfordshire.

Amongst the many carefully-selected items on sale will be handmade products from two Oxfordshire makers, beauty company Fifield Road Apothecary and woodworkers Raw Workshop.

Different Kind specialise in the hand-crafted, the foraged, the hard-to-find and the small batch. In addition, everything we stock is created by small producers who also have a social purpose and who are all trying to change the world in their own different ways.

Christmas gifts you buy from Different Kind could, amongst other things, help refugees to build new lives, give workplace support to young people with learning difficulties, help those without homes or assist women leaving violent relationships. Every gift gives twice.

All the suppliers have a unique and often moving story to tell. Year round, we tell these stories and sell the goods they produce on www.thedifferentkind.com. At the pop-up, Different Kind’s committed staff will also be keen to guide you through the items on offer as well as share samples.

The beauty products made by Fifield Road Apothecary are created using plants that are grown and foraged on founder Leslie Jowett Astor’s family farm in the Cotswolds. Raw Workshop use reclaimed wood to create furniture and other items and 75% of their workforce have faced challenges such as homelessness, addiction or mental health struggles.

The Different Kind shop will feature hand-painted windows by local artist Anges von Kindt Rhode and sits at the edge of the ground of Blenheim Palace.

Shoppers will be able to choose from hand-blown glasses, organic beauty products, batch-made scented candles, handmade chocolates, cards, decorations and much much more.
