The Blue Gryphon

Our editor's top pick, the Blue Gryphon; an unusual shop which stocks a curious selection of jewellery and giftware, furnishings and taxidermy salvaged from roadkill - not for the fainthearted! But if you are looking for an unusual gift or a quirky piece of jewellery, this is the place to visit. The majority of the selections on sale are one-off pieces or limited editions and ranges change constantly - apparently according to the 'owner’s untethered mind'!
