How Do Pullingers Art Shop Kingston Feel?
Needless to say we are thrilled and extremely grateful to all of those who voted for us. Pullingers Art Shop Kingston feel very thankful to have gained so many loyal customers over the years. We are proud to have supported the local students of Kingston University and Kingston College as well as the artists of Kingston’s vibrant creative community.
Also, a big thumbs up to Kingstonfirst on their BID (Business Improvement District) renewal and for organising this competition. Independent stores bring a unique quality to the Town Centre and make Kingston the great place that it is.
Kingstonfirst has worked hard to create the Kingston we see today – a clean and safe town with a thriving retail centre and a bustling café culture to rival that of any European city.
They have successfully raised awareness of the local arts and culture scene with their many events and festivals. We now have the likes of the night markets, vintage fairs and food festivals thanks to Kingstonfirst.
What Do Our Customers Think Of Us?
Local artist and regular customer Hanna ten Doornkaat says,
“All Pullingers products are my favourites. I love the variety and the fact that it feels like a proper Art Shop and not a shop for the masses. If you want to find something special, go to Pullingers. If they don’t have it, they will try and get it for you. That’s my experience!”
