From Nordic essentials to bijou boutiques – Putney has it all

We are proud to have so many independent shops in Putney and as Independents Day UK weekend draws closer (2-3 July 2022), we thought it fitting to highlight some of the best in Putney.

Unsurprisingly, a recent survey of Putney residents revealed that local residents want more independent shops. Quirky, original and a joy to browse in; independent shops are the lifeblood of our high streets. You obviously have your favourites but here are some for you to check out:


Being a Blåbär in Swedish means being a beginner, new at something, and that described Sandra and Oli pretty well back in 2016 when they launched into this adventure. Blåbär offers a selection of handpicked products from new Nordic designers.

Check out what Blabar has to offer.


Aigoo carefully select the best fashion, accessories, stationery and gifts that will make you say “aigoo!” or “wow!”. They especially love Korean cosmetics and you’ll find a curated range of the best K-beauty products in Aigoo.

Find out what Aigoo has in store.


Farrago means mixture in Latin and this shop certainly stocks quite a range of products from quirky home accessories to decorative cards. It will give you great inspiration for that special gift that you need to buy.



Huttons began its journey in1996 in Putney, London. Having travelled to Mexico in search of unusual homeware, Mark Hutton returned with his purchases and opened his first store selling ceramics and furniture complimented with Colombian pottery. The brand has developed over the years offering greeting cards, candles and clothing. Many of the products are sourced from around the world in the continued pursuit of the unusual.
