Thame, Oxfordshire

If I liked the term ‘concept store’, I’d describe FROM as one. But I don’t. So it isn’t. It is however, a shop that was borne out of an idea. Which was borne out of moving to Haddenham and seeing how much talent there was around here. Painters, ceramicists, photographers etc etc. All working. All occasionally exhibiting. But very rarely selling. So my wife Sarah and I built FROM. Where the painters, ceramicists and photographers could sell their work. Alongside candle-makers. Clothes designers. Jewellers. It’s an eclectic gathering. Of amazing talents. From our area. Which was...and still is...the idea. But it’s not a concept.
