About Us

Hello and welcome to the Corn Craft Gift Shop!

The Corn Craft Gift Shop & Tea Room was started by Win and Roy Gage, my parents, back in September 1990. 

After a couple of decades in the craft business, making and supplying Corn Dollies and dried flower arrangements to the gift industry, they decided to set up their own gift shop selling affordable crafts and unusual items, together with a tea room where customers could stop for a spot of light refreshment.  Over the years, the shop and tea room developed and it's popularity sored, as there wasn't really much else like it around at the time.

I became involved from 2005, when my kids were small, and took over the running of the business from around 2008. It's been a challenging journey so far, as I've had to steer the business through many choppy waters!  But, with the incredible support of our customers, and a wonderful team of staff, we are still here fighting the good fight!

The essence of our business has always been to offer something 'a little different'.  In fact, that is one thing we constantly hear from our customers in the shop!  If you visit our shop, not only will you find a fabulous selection of gifts and cards, but this will be accompanied by good old fashioned Suffolk service from a team who genuinely care about the customer.  It's not all about the sale.  It's about helping customers make the right purchase and sometimes just having a good old chin wag!

The world of retail has changed rapidly over the past few years with online sales becoming increasingly more important for some retailers. However, we are still very much a 'bricks and mortar' business, so our online shop offers just a very small selection of what you will find in our 'real' shop. If I had more hours in the day I would love to showcase everything in the shop online, but sadly, that is not a reality right now!

I hope you enjoy browsing our little online shop. If you have visited us, and would like to purchase something that you saw in the shop but can't find it here, please do give us a call or drop me an email and we will endeavor to help.
