When we say this store is a one-stop shop for gifts, we really mean it. It has an eclectic mix of books, artisan homewares, jewellery, luxe stationery, art and candles to choose from. Select a card and some artisan wrapping paper, and shopping for gifts has never been easier.

Pentimento is a haven for quirky, artisan products - carefully selected and beautifully displayed to make the shopping experience unique and uniformly successful (whether you actually planned to buy yourself another journal or ceramic bowl, or not).

Pentimento is the place you go to buy something for the person who has everything, doesn't "want anything", and yet will most certainly be upset if you get them nothing. Sourcing their eclectic mix of homewares, books, journals, bath products, jewellery, cards and stationery from stylish parts of the world, they tend to capitalise on quirk. In its 15 years it's become a King Street institution — a favourite of stationery nerds, last-minute gift givers, and browsers inclined to dedicate the necessary twenty minutes to thoroughly enjoy the greeting card selection.
