Bellwoods Lifestyle Store brings together a collection of Planet Friendly, Design-Led and Cool things for you, your home and your life.
There's nothing better than being able to see and touch beautiful objects and Bellwoods Store has been designed as a calm space filled with positive vibes. Each maker and item in the shop has a modern, well-made design with strong ethical credentials and selected to feel like it belongs next to the other.
We are plastic free (unless recycled into a new product) and re-use everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment. We're pro-active in supporting our local community too, having raised money for The Millin Charity, If You Care Share Foundation and Smart Works Newcastle in our first three months of opening. We're a drop off point for the East End Women Foodbank and host monthly pop up shops with local, independent makers, giving them a physical retail space and shop window to showcase their work and connect with a new audience.
Bellwoods is independently owned and operated by Nathalie, a former retail manager and visual merchandiser.
"After spending my 20’s in Toronto (Bellwoods is affectionately named after Trinity Bellwoods Park) I came home and decided to merge my experience and passion to venture off on my own and introduce a modern lifestyle store to Newcastle.
I’m really passionate about supporting and shouting about independent designers. I want people to see the amazing work being made by someone’s own hands - and the creativity, time and effort it takes to make something truly unique and special, rather than a mass produced item made with no care and attention. The items chosen will last.
I’m also passionate about great service. I am one person who will select and curate products for you, wrap all of your orders, and have a proper chat with you too.
I do it with care because I believe shopping should be an easy and inspiring experience. I want to get to know my customers and to bring something truly personal and unlike the usual high street offer."
