The StephieAnn shop is celebrating its second year in the Brighton and Hove Artist Open Houses! This year, I’m doing something new and have invited other local makers to join me for the festival. The Artist Open Houses happen every May in Brighton and Hove where nearly 200 artists open the doors to their homes, studios, and shops to the public every weekend in May.

Here’s some of my favourite houses from the festival. I recommend picking up a brochure locally from any of the houses, or downloading the map online. More info can be found here

StephieAnn Best Sellers…

Bamboo Robe review 19th April 2024

I bought this as a gift and the recipient said it was very soft. The size I ordered was too large so I arranged with the seller for it to be returned and replaced with a smaller size, which all went very smoothly.”


New at StephieAnn…
