Shopping locally is a current trend that is recognised as a positive way to help the UK’s economy. Shop Dorset enables you to do this from the comfort of your own home by buying online from a great mix of local retailers offering special gifts and treats for friends, family or yourself, including cookware and craftwork, books and beer, gardening and green products.
Just browse the categories on our home page to enjoy discovering the wide variety of items available to purchase via Shop Dorset. From each category, drop down menus will appear to guide you to tempting delights listed under each heading.
Treats for foodies from renowned Dorset food and drink producers such as Olives Et Al, Chococo, Piddle Brewery, Dorset Cereals, Fudges and Woolsery Cheese are all accessible via the site. And for those with an artistic bent, Shop Dorset introduces many local makers of unique woodwork, jewellery, handbags, home accessories, luxury children’s wear and so much more. Just browse the categories on our home page to enjoy discovering!
Retailers listed on our site either offer a quick-click link into their own website for purchasing their products or services, or offer a collection for sale within their own Shop Dorset pages, via a link which says 'View our Shop Dorset collection'. If you purchase from a Retailers' collection within their dedicated Shop Dorset pages, you are still dealing direct with the individual Retailer who will receive notification of your payment and order via their own Paypal link from the site.
