Enchanted Childhood Toy Shop has recently opened in the vibrant Cotswold town o f Nailsworth to the delight of local parents. The town used to boast three toy shops; Star Shine, The Little People Company and Heffalumps 2 Heroes, all of which closed within the last year.
“Lots of people had told us about the toy shops in Nailsworth,” said Angharad James the owner of Enchanted Childhood, “so we went to buy something for our son’s fifth birthday. We found Heffalumps 2 Heroes and The Little People Company had already gone and Star Shine was closing down. It was really sad that these much loved toy shops were closing but we saw it presented us with an opportunity to have a go ourselves.”
Enchanted Childhood is Angharad’s first toy shop and in fact her first attempt at retail. She has been really pleased by the overwhelmingly positive response she is receiving, “People have been so happy to see a new toy shop in Nailsworth and given us really positive feedback. I love it when people step inside the door and just say ‘Wow’, it makes all the effort worth while.”
“We’ve loved becoming part of the Nailsworth community, it is such a vibrant place with so many independent shops and the free parking really helps.”
