They are sisters who have set up a small lifestyle shop and café ‘Plum & Grain’ in the centre of Newbury, Berkshire – brave or mad in the current climate…who knows.

Hannah currently works for a not for profit, having previously ran a successful personal training business.

She is a keen baker, making gorgeous cupcakes and celebration cakes @cakesbyplum, and a yoga lover.

Kathryn had a career in Human Resources but has dreamed about running her own business for some time.

She loves travelling and is the master behind all the beautiful photography (I am willing to pimp her out if anyone needs photos doing).

Plum & Grain is located within the Old Town Hall, a beautiful building in the centre of Newbury, which is also home to the wonderful Living Sauchayoga studio.

On their website you will find their own handmade accessories (linen & silk headbands, scrunchies, tea towels and more) as well as vintage items they have sourced and fallen in love with. 

These sit alongside the products of talented UK-based creatives with ethical and sustainable values – gold & silver jewellery, vegan skincare and hand poured candles are just a few.

Their aim is to provide customers with beautiful, unique, and useful things from the ever-growing community of independent makers and sellers across the UK.

They both have a love for shopping, but want to help change the way we currently do this.

Shop local, support small business, be as eco-friendly as possible and, last but not least, give back to the community and those less fortunate than us.

They serve a variety of delicious homemade cakes including vegan and gluten-free options, speciality coffee by Iron & Fire and a range of NEMI teas.

There is a beautifully tranquil courtyard to sit in or everything is available to take away.
