Celebrating 20 years in St Ives

Our first Whistlefish shop, located on The Wharf in St Ives, was opened back in 1997. Twenty years later, we're proud to be a long-standing business in the St Ives community, with a second gallery open on the high-street, less than a hundred feet away. 

We celebrated this milestone last week with the local community, to our delight, the St Ives Deputy Mayor turned up to show his support as well as a few local journalists. We even ended up front page of The Cornishman newspaper - hip, hip, hooray!

See a few event highlights below and if you haven't visited us yet, here is the address of our little shop on The Wharf, which is well worth the trip! 

Special thanks to: our props stylist Lois for making our coastal window display, consisting of St Ives lighthouse, waves, boats and seagulls; Debby and her team at Raw Choc Pie for the yummy nibbles and John's Wines & Spirit Specialist for the fantastic fizz.
