Fishboy Pz

At the top of Penzance’s most historical street is Fishboy Pz, an independent Cornish clothing company which has been designing and screen printing clothes since 2001. The prints take inspiration from the surrounding landscape and history, including themes of farming, mining and fishing. The store also has a gallery that showcases local artists and photographers.

Starburst Boutique

At the boutique

Starburst Boutique was established only in 2008 but has already won awards and found its footing in this competitive market. Located in beautiful Dartmouth, the shop stocks an eclectic blend of statement jewellery and womenswear. Starburst is a relaxed affair, and customers can saunter and browse leisurely to their heart’s content.

Conker Shoes

The shop has crafted soft leather shoes since 1977, and they use the finest quality materials to make sure your new shoes last a lifetime. Not only are they made to perfection, but they’ll also fix them in-store for you when they start to show wear and tear, so you’ll never have to throw out a favourite pair again.

Caramel Clothing
