Ethel Loves Me is a cool and quirky concept store on East Street, set just off Rye High Street presenting a range of unique inspirations and original pieces, limited editions and collectables. The team behind Ethel work with local makers, artists, artisans and craftspeople to offer an ever-changing collection plus regular inspiring exhibitions. Specialities are arts, craft, curios, lifestyle, upcycled, salvage, vintage and fun fashion, presented in a unique and upbeat environment with special guest tastemakers and curators helping shape the store. Part art gallery, part lifestyle and gift shop, part experimental space, there is also a real heart for the community in providing a platform for both up-and-coming and established creatives with an ever-evolving space in which they can show and sell their work. Ethel also has an ethical approach. No-leather and cruelty free policies come as standard, and the focus is on the up-cycled, the natural and a buy/shop-local ethos. You can also find out about their charities, events and collections online with the option to buy direct on their website – but remember, with Ethel you have to act fast - because when it’s gone, it’s gone!
