about us

Car & Kitchen, who are we? Well, no, we don’t sell anything that will help with any mechanical issues you may be experiencing. First and certainly foremost, we are a family business, having started way back in the 1970’s when everything was beige and brown. In those days it was The Grandfather, Christopher George Ellis running the show and his honesty and hard work are still part of the standards we set for ourselves today. We are now onto our 3rd generation of ownership with each generation bringing their own tastes and passions to the business. There is one thing we've all tried to do though and that's to make you happy. How nice are we? Super nice.

What do we sell, well, gifts, clothing, homeware, kitchenware, and kids toys mainly, and if you are lucky enough to come visit us then you’ll even be able to enjoy the wonderful Kitchen Cafe! What more could you ask for?…Don’t ask for car parts we don’t have any!
