A tiny treasure trove in Cardigan

Discover The Blue Boat, a charming shop and open art studio set on historic St. Mary Street, tucked just behind Cardigan Castle. We reside in a beautiful old stable with interesting features throughout. We carry a range of hand-picked unique finds, from vintage ceramics, Welsh studio pottery, leather bound books, to pre-loved clothes featuring popular brand names such as Desigual, White Stuff, Boden, Fat Face and more. We also carry a beautiful collection of vintage Welsh tapestry blankets and coats as well as upcycled soft furnishings, all made here in Cardigan. 

Venture upstairs and you will find the open art studio of shop owner Jennifer Hawkyard, featuring her unique illustrations of the creatures and critters she discovers on her travels. Here you can browse through a wide range of greetings cards, prints and originals created in vibrant colours and complex textures. 

Creative evening workshops and mentorship are also available. More information on these can be found on our Facebook page

There's lots more to see, so stop by for a visit.
