About Us

A cheerful, cheeky and colourful lifestyle shop. The Shop at the Old Fire Station is a small independent store in the centre of Oxford.  We sell quirky, feelgood gifts including jewellery, homewares, textiles, prints and stationery. All our goods are designed or made by UK indie designer-makers or small businesses. Plus, as part of Arts at the Old Fire Station, the money from your purchases goes back into our charity work with Crisis, providing training and volunteering opportunities for homeless people. 

We also run modern craft workshops if you fancy learning something new.

Step in and find something to put a smile on your face.







We are part of Arts at the Old Fire Station, an arts centre in the heart of Oxford, showcasing the best of local, national and international performance and artwork, which takes a risk and entertains.

What do we do?
The Old Fire Station is a public arts centre
• presenting new work across art forms
• supporting artists
• including people facing tough times

How do we do it?
We do this by focussing on:
• good quality relationships
• encouraging creativity and risk-taking
• offering a public space which is welcoming to all

Why is this needed?
Oxford is globally renowned for stunning heritage and outstanding research.
Oxford is also a place of disadvantage and inequality and is sometimes regarded as closed.

Oxford needs the Old Fire Station because it is about openness, inclusion, looking forward and different thinking. The Old Fire Station acts as a bridge between sectors, organisations and people.
