About Us

I first opened A Fly Went By in our beautiful home town of Southwell, in Nottinghamshire in June 2012 and realised (within about 10 minutes) that I absolutely loved being a shopkeeper! Changing the window displays, sourcing the collections, working with the best colleagues ever and most of all, meeting the lovely and varied customers who came through the door each day, many of whom happily ended up as friends.

Although the shop in Southwell is now closed, we have tried to transfer all the good bits into our new online store and even added some extras...you used to have to get dressed to go to the shop, now you can shop in your pyjamas and just wait for your parcel to arrive!
