Urban Dweller Gift Shop

Urban Dweller is my first choice to find those really special presents for really special people. The fact that it's right next door to The Flying Nun Café at Samford makes it a very easy place to visit.

There are antiques and artefacts, aprons and artwork, bangles and bracelets, bags and beads, cards and clothes, cushions and coats, scarves and silverware – you get the picture – and all crammed into a small space giving a blast of generosity to the seeker-of-gifts and making resistance useless. The atmosphere and friendly service help you to choose and make the right decision! And they always ask if you'd like things gift-wrapped.

The cards they sell are wonderful. There's one design I have bought for two different friends and I know that both loved the quirky humour. Some of the cards are not suitable for aged aunts without a sense of humour…

I've found lovely soaps there; unusual candle-holders from Germany which, once the candle or tea-light is lit, glow with bright, gorgeous colours; a resin free-form bead bracelet in just the colour for one of my friends; earrings for another. The selection is amazing and the costs from very reasonable to a bit more.

Proprietors Amanda Smith and Theresa Meekin have ranges of the stylish and unusual clothing lines; I am often tempted. There are often sales, too, which are great value.

When you've finished indulging in gift and/or clothes shopping, nip next door for refreshment.
