Mermaid's Purse

Where Are You?

Sometimes people have trouble finding us. We've been here for nearly 15 years, yet customers who have visited Wells many times often say to us "We didn't know you were here!" We are located in the main shopping street in Wells-next-the-Sea, Staithe Street, which runs at right angles to the famous Quay. Mermaid's Purse is located about halfway along, set just off the road. Our shops occupy the ground floor of The Mayshiel - one of the town's grandest historical buildings.
