About The JuJu Shop: We're passionate about finding interesting unusual products for you and your home or one of those unique presents you just can't find anywhere else. Our aim is to work with a number of talented individual artists, designers and crafts people as well as larger scale producers who we feel meet our values, providing our customers with the opportunity to purchase something really unique, unusual, high quality, exclusive and beautiful.

We decided to set up the JuJu Shop after realising that there is a vast wealth of individuals producing some amazingly intricate and wonderful products, struggling to find a good home at a fair price. Through our site and shop we aim to give these talented people a platform to do just that.

We also love and adore great design and items that can actually make a tangible difference in your life by providing you with inspiration every time you look at them. We aim to provide you with products that can inspire you, maybe even inspiring you to get creative yourself, to get out your crayons, dust down your tools, set up that easel and get cracking today.
