A new independent lifestyle store has opened in Skipton’s medieval High Corn Mill.
Maud’s House, owned by Hattie Crook and named after her great grandmother, will offer a selection of contemporary homewares and gifts, including lighting, small furniture, exclusive prints and cards – bringing the best of Danish and Dutch design to the Dales.
Originally from Blackburn, Hattie’s first retail business venture was inspired by her and partner Jonathan Shackleton’s background in design and illustration.
Hattie said: “I wanted to bring Maud’s House to Skipton to offer local families the chance to buy something different. The mill’s location is perfect, being just a stone’s throw away from the award winning High Street and is host to great parking facilities – meaning it’s easily accessible for all our customers.”
It will stock brands including Hilda Carr, House Doctor and Papio Press as well as showcase some of the best of UK designers and illustrators.
Hattie added: “We love Skipton and can’t wait to immerse ourselves into the local community as well as sharing the things we love with the general public.”
