Welcome to Too Nice To Use... We have finally done it! We have opened a bricks and mortar shop in Saltaire taking my artwork and products from clicks to bricks. We are making it our mission to specialise in products from uk artists or smaller uk businesses. We’re constantly developing and searching for new to market design-led products to give our customers a variety of choice whilst maintaining high quality. Every item in our shop is hand picked by the owner Simone Crossland and we regularly get positive feedback about the shop, so we know we’re going in the right direction!! Customers are already calling us 'A happy shop' after just a couple of months of opening. We hope that our inspired and thoughtfully curated range of products will add joy and a smile to your home or to that of a loved one.
We have a gallery on the first floor where Simone showcases her original paintings and 3 artist’s studios. These offer a great space for the artists to produce their work in an inspirational setting. In fact Simone creates her artwork and prints her products in her 1st floor studio here. It’s great having the artists working in the building, it feels like a real creative hub when everyone’s in and they’re a constant source of inspiration. If you have any questions about the shop, please get in touch via the contact page.
We have a selection of original artwork by Simone Crossland, She is probably best known for her abstract floral paintings. Simone is passionate about creating beautiful giftware and making each a work of art in itself. The majority of items are hand printed in her studio above the shop in Saltaire, Yorkshire giving each item that personal touch.
