    Every Seasalt window is bespoke and completely unique…

    Our team (say hello overleaf) design with a vintage feel and tweak the windows to fit each of our shops.

    They’re different from the average, identikit shop window. We practice a more
    old-fashioned style of window dressing to
    try and bring some fun and creativity to the high street. They speak volumes about who we are and where we come from, as well as all the beautiful things we sell.

    Seasalt’s window dressers are based in the attic of our Falmouth shop. There’s not alot of headroom but the view over the harbour is great! Up here they design and plan and make all the props that appear in our windows each month.

    Cornwall is packed with inspiration; from the landscape & wildlife, to the sea & maritime history & the vibrant art scene. We also get lots of ideas from art & craft books and magazines.

    The window design starts with a moodboard and sketches before we move on to making props...

    Most of our props are hand made. We sew, felt, glue, paint & all sorts of other craft techniques to make our windows completely unique.

    Other props are hunted down in local charity shops and boatyards or found with a bit of beachcombing.

    Once all the preparations are done,the window team hit the road. They visit each Seasalt shop to assemble the display.

  • The Windows

    All Seasalt shops get
    a new display every month,
    here’s some of our favourites
    from the last few years...

    Beach Combing

    Here in Cornwall we love a spot of beach combing! This window combined nautical outfits with driftwood, ropes, sea urchins & other beach treasures.

    Shells were strung together or mounted on little sticks & we couldn’t resist drawing faces on the buoys in the kids’ windows! .

    For the launch of the Artists & Potters Collection the windows were filled with artists’ materials and palettes of lovely soft pastel colours.

    Feb 2011

    Here in Cornwall we know a thing or two about rain. Instead of grumbling we thought we’d celebrate with a window of raincoats, umbrellas and cats and dogs!

    Traditional Christmas decorations with a seaside twist!
