Not far from our little shop in Rock is Porthilly Farm, owned and operated by the Marshall family since 1918. But this farm does not just work the land; since the early 1980s it has also been an oyster, mussel and clam farm! Read the rest of this entry »
Our March window theme is Daffodils and window dressers Kathryn and Tara have been busy making lovely Cornish daffodils.
Kathryn and Tara made the daffs using tiny pompoms of wool, attached them onto the end of bamboo sticks and then wrapped tissue paper petals around the pom pom. Each daffodil has its own unique name, which has been stamped onto the luggage tags.
The inspiration for the window came from Ron Scamp, a daffodil breeder in Falmouth. You can read his story here

Our 2013 Christmas window displays feature giant paper pine trees inspired by vintage Scandinavian prints.

Sperry Top-Sider deck shoes have been a favourite since 1935 when Paul Sperry, inspired by the pattern of cracks in his dog Prince’s paws and his ability to run nimbly over the ice and snow, used a pen knife to cut into the rubber outer sole of a trainer. As a keen sailor Paul used these new shoe soles to avoid slipping on the wet deck of his boat and so a classic was born!
There’s been an explosion of wild flowers in fields and hedgerows around our design studio in Falmouth. Read the rest of this entry »
Would you believe it? It’s been a whole year since we opened our doors at the Seasalt Rock Shop. The team sent through some lovely piccies of the shop bedecked in birthday decorations – and customers celebrated with us with fizz from Polgoon Vineyard, pasties from Chough Bakery, fudge from Buttermilk Confections and flowers by Elaine at Flowers from Bruallen. We hope you all had a lovely time and saved us a slice of cake!
