Join us as we meet 5 of the inspiring independent shops that have recently joined our community - from the world's best high streets direct to you.

Supporting independent businesses and fighting to keep our local high streets alive has never been more important, and here at Trouva, that’s what we’re all about.

From fashion boutiques with under-the-radar brands you won’t find anywhere else in London, to expertly curated artisanal homeware shops in Lisbon, Trouva hunts out the cream of the crop from the world’s best high streets, and brings them direct to you. Whether our community of boutiques are local to you, or 1000 miles away, you can always support your favourite independent shops from the comfort of your sofa.

Read on to meet 5 of the inspiring independent boutiques that have recently joined our community.

Set up in Staffordshire by husband and wife duo Russelle and James just after the pandemic, Lively Concept Store curates honest and unpretentious home products with a minimal aesthetic. Bringing together Scandinavian and Japanese influences, their collection will help you turn your space into a sanctuary. “We’re thrilled to be part of the Trouva community” says Russelle, “we’re looking forward to a successful 2023 with Trouva helping us reach new customers”.

“We’re excited that Trouva customers can now discover our curated products as well our art prints and greetings cards made in collaboration with artists from around the world.” says Harry, Evermade’s owner.

Alongside its artist-commissioned unique prints, the boutique curates a range of lifestyle pieces from best-selling brands like Baggu, Yod & Co. and Raawii. With Evermade on your side you know you’ll find that one-of-a-kind gift for any occasion.

4. Blossom & Roar

Kate Roche, founder of Blossom & Roar, has been a fan of the Trouva Community for years: “I love discovering small and independent businesses, so to now have my own boutique at Trouva is a great feeling! I am so excited to be a part of this amazing platform and have more people discover my little shop and watch my business grow.” Kate’s passion for small brands has also informed how she curates the Blossom & Roar collection. From brands using deadstock fabrics to those working with organisations that help provide education and a fair living wage for artisans, you can find consciously created products without compromising on unique style. We particularly love the hand-painted ceramics from Vaisselle and Egg Back Home.
