A bit about us...

We’re an online curated marketplace that’s home to over 5,000 of the UK’s best small creative businesses, who we like to call our Partners. Up and down the country – in workshops and home studios – they’re busy carving, baking, sourcing and making thoughtful gifts, unique homeware and original treat-yourself finds for over three million customers.

5,000 of the UK's best small creative businesses

Over £2 billion of sales for our small businesses since we launched in 2006
250,000 curated products across a wide range of categories made and sourced by our talented partners

It all started at a kitchen table

...but, wow, look how we’ve grown. Repping the sweat, sleepless nights (and sweet rewards) that go into setting up a new business, our founders Holly Tucker MBE and Sophie Cornish MBE started notonthehighstreet with a need for something never seen before. Cheese-shaped chocolate? Gin-and-tonic lip balm? Hand-stamped jewellery? Our Partners have certainly delivered.

Why it’s important to support small

We commissioned some independent research into the health of small businesses up and down the country (from local butchers to bakers and bicycle makers) and the results showed that over half are at risk of shutting up shop within the year. We can’t have that, can we? Especially after how hard small businesses have worked this year to provide us with one-of–a-kind finds that, well, you won’t see on the high street.

We’re at home in Richmond

You can find us – under normal circumstances – at our home in Richmond, South West London. notonthehighstreet is led by CEO Claire Davenport and Chaired by retail veteran Darren Shapland. It is backed by media and technology company Hubert Burda Media and venture capitalists including Index Ventures, Industry Ventures and Eight Roads Ventures.
