About Eclectic Gift Shop

Hi! I'm Nicola Bartlett and I opened Eclectic Gift Shop in 2017. I'm from east Bristol and love being a part of the fantastic community here in Hanham. I started selling my own photographs in 2016 and left my job as a manager in the NHS to open Eclectic a year after selling my very first photo. I opened the shop in two weeks flat during my notice period and it's been an absolute whirlwind ever since!

Meet the owner, Nicola Bartlett

It's been such an incredible journey and opening Eclectic has been the best life-changing decision I've made. Bristol is such a brilliantly creative city and I'm incredibly proud to sell artwork, jewellery, greetings cards and much more by some of Bristol’s best independent businesses.

Eclectic Gift Shop has been nationally and locally recognised as one of the best small businesses in the UK and I would like to thank the following organisations for their incredible support:

Visa for selecting me as one of their 2019 ‘High Street Stars’ and for producing a 30 second advert about Eclectic Gift Shop.
