Originally created in 1971 by the mother of the present owner to offer discerning customers an eclectic mix of fashion and fun at affordable prices. Clothes, Jewellery and Gifts from all over the world as well as souvenirs all made in the UK.
The ethos of Four Winds is for the individual to find an amazing choice for themselves or to give as gifts for others. We are able to give a personal service to offer guidance with expert advice when asked, without pressure which is a refreshing experience. We trade with commercial conscience giving the maker and buyer a fair price and to embrace aspects of environmentalism, fair trade and sustainablility.
All our fashion labels are direct from importers or designers which means our prices are less than other retailers and the choice of styles is wider ranging from petite to plus. Labels include Kushi, Bohemia, Eastern Charm, Hot Body and Ethnic Touch which have accessories like bags, belts and scarves.
Gifts covers a vast selection of unusual and useful presents for people who have everything which would be included in our 'miscellaneous' selection, jewellery, ornaments, toys (timeless classics like skipping ropes as well as the latest innovative toys like laser tech spinning tops) and so much more ...
Through listening to customers and great suppliers we are able to source many innovative new products and are known for having 'the next 'must have' or 'gotta try it' thing first. Four Winds produced a cotton shopping bag in 1975 with Mayfield design printed in Scotland and printed a new design in 2007 as the awareness for more ethical shoppers and less plastic was demanded by the environment.
Something for everyone, young and old!
Four Winds has been around for 37 years in Mayfield!
