Greenfinch is a relaxed space showcasing artists and makers from Sussex and Kent, open Tuesday to Saturday 10am - 5pm.
My aim is to offer an eclectic mix of locally made pieces spanning a wide price range, with something for everyone. The artwork, ceramics, sculpture and jewellery change approximately every 3 months, so there's always something new to see.
Greenfinch is set in the heart of the beautiful village of Ticehurst, close to the East Sussex/Kent border and only half an hour from Tunbridge Wells, Hastings, Cranbrook and Mayfield. This small village punches well above its weight, with a selection of independent shops and businesses including Ruston House Interiors, Buy The Weigh, The Old Haberdashery, The Art Bunch florist, Greedy Goat café and not forgetting the ever-popular Bell and Bull Inn pubs.
Nearby attractions include Pashley Manor Gardens, King John's Nursery, Bedgebury Pinetum and Bewl Water.
About Me: Jane Tritton
With a background in event organising and fundraising, I have always dreamt of opening up a shop and running my own business. Coming from three generations of small business owners, perhaps in the blood and inevitable!
The opportunity arose in 2019, after I’d moved to Ticehurst and discovered that this perfect retail space was to become available. Greenfinch opened its doors in mid October 2019.
My vision was to have a relaxed welcoming space, open and accessible for all to feel comfortable wandering in for a browse, or to pick up just a card or a £5 bar of locally made soap.
I was also very clear about wanting to support local, and that’s what you’ll find in Greenfinch: a carefully chosen quirky mix of artwork, sculpture, ceramics, jewellery, garden items, homeware, cards, books, natural candles and bath & body products and a range of clothing and accessories. All from artists, makers and small independent companies from Sussex and Kent.
I absolutely love what I’m now doing, finding and building relationships with my incredibly talented suppliers, along with building an equally important relationship with my fabulous customers.
The aim too is to hold regular Meet The Artist/Maker events in the shop. Rudely interrupted by the C word, but to be resumed just as soon as it’s safe to do so.
