About Us

 About Coastal Creatives

 In May 2007 Coastal Creatives Boutique Gallery opened on Southbourne Grove high street in Bournemouth. This was a dream come true for co-owners Rachael and Louise. Their unique gallery is a double fronted period building with stunning stained glass windows, high ceilings and parquee flooring. It is conveniently located just a five minute stroll from the beach. 


Coastal Creatives ethos is to support the local economy providing an outlet for artists and small cottage industries, combined with British made eco-friendly lifestyle products. This enables Rachael and Louise to choose uniquely designed pieces, reflecting the locality, which are ethically made and not mass produced. Everything in the Coastal Creatives Boutique Gallery has been made with love and care.

Collections range from locally sourced, handcrafted driftwood furniture, mirrors and wall art, panoramic seascape canvasses, seaside inspired screen prints and block art, shell and sea glass jewellery from the Jurassic coast, oyster shell candles and rope door stops.    Commissions are very welcome so pop in with your measurements and wish list!
