About Us

Welcome to our on-line store.

Annabel James was established in 2013, in the heart of the English countryside on the Hampshire/West Sussex border, offering affordable luxury gifts, vintage jewellery and home and garden accessories. 

Drawing upon her jewellery and luxury goods PR background, Anne has curated some very special gifts for the home and garden, with gifts for her, gifts for him, gifts for the gardener…   You will find tasteful gifts for dog and cat lovers, and as we are chicken keepers, some lovely things which will make great gifts for fellow hen-keepers.  There is a vintage section offering lovely jewels and objets inspired by our antique and luxury background, sourced by Anne who has been collecting vintage jewellery since the late 1980s.

A whole section is dedicated to Christmas, including luxury crackers designed and hand-made in England by Nancy & Betty, and crackers hand-made in Dorset for dogs and cats. There are some fabulous Christmas wreaths and LED lights to create a Winter Wonderland and Christmas tree decorations and baubles, not forgetting some lovely stocking fillers.

We are passionate about supporting British craftsmanship and half of the items we offer at any time are beautifully crafted by small artisan companies as well as known British brands. Our ‘Made in Britain’ section is packed to the brim with hand-decorated pottery and stunning jewellery, both made in Oxfordshire, kitchen textiles – aprons and napkins, tea towels and oven gloves - as well as hankies celebrating the unique nature of British design.  There are finely-crafted leather gardening goods from Shropshire and beautiful scarves and throws made in the last remaining vertical mill in the UK.  

We ship world-wide and items can be gift-wrapped and sent to the recipient with a personalised card.
