Our story

Fresh, modern, design-Led products for you + your (not so basic) home.  HOME | KIDS | LIFESTYLE | &LIVING

Everything that exists started as something else. It all started with Andshine. When co-founder Georgina Martin started selling handmade products online in 2010 whilst being a stay at home mum of Two. With a background in fashion design, a love for everything Scandinavian, graphic design and an old vintage Singer sewing machine rescued from the tip, she started producing a range of soft furnishings. Back when it wasn't the trend to work from home she started something that flourished and has since grown into &living

We are &Living.  A family run independent business situated in historic Chapel street in Cornwall. Our family has traded from the same shop for the last 40 years. We are a 2nd generation shopkeeper! Carefully and mindfully picking a collection of homewares from UK, Cornish and Scandinavian brands that represent us as a family and as a business. Selecting products that we truly love and would be happy to have in our own homes, and we do!  

We believe that small & independent is where its at. Online shopping just isn't the same as having a good old nose around a shop. We support the our local community and economy and hope that you will too. #shoplocal

Plastic Free. PROUD TO BE....... Plastic Free. Penzance IS Britain's first ever plastic-free town. In 2018 we were proudly awarded plastic free status and became part of the Plastic free community in Penzance by removing any single use plastic items.  We are slowly phasing out single use plastic products and instead offer a more a natural, longer lasting option.

Our Moto is buy well - buy once and contribute to the solution instead of the problem.
