Welcome to Squirrel
Located in a converted pub in the heart of the market town of Ulverston, Cumbria Squirrel – a Store of Buried Treasure sells an eclectic mix of home and giftware you wouldn’t normally find on the high street. From smaller items such as quirky handmade jewellery, stationery, greetings cards, bags and accessories to ceramics, rugs, throws, furniture and so much more! We are the largest stockists of the Sting in the Tail weird and wonderful bathing gifts and home and garden accessories so you are guaranteed to find a present for even the choosiest individual! Our children’s section has lots to offer including pocket money toys, puzzles, games, craft kits, cuddly toys and puppets. We stock items that are produced locally as well as from a more global market and where possible we buy fair trade, ethical and eco-friendly products.
Squirrel is a stockist of Grand Illusions Vintage Chalk Paint and for those of you unsure on where to start when it comes to upcycling furniture we hold paint workshops which give you the opportunity to try lots of different ageing techniques in a relaxed environment using the wide colour palette available. For more information on our up coming workshops please see below.
We are dog friendly and any four legged friends will receive a warm welcome and maybe even a treat or two!
Our stock is ever changing and evolving so there’s always something new and different to entice you. Follow us on social media for an up to date look at what we have in stock as well as any other events and offers. Squirrel Ulverston
