The Mock Turtle is a curated destination shop in the medieval town of Beaumaris on the Welsh island of Anglesey. Discover our colourful world of unique ceramics and joyful one-off pieces created by international and local artisans. We stock thoughtful gifts for friends and meaningful one-of-a-kind presents for every occasion from birthdays, to weddings and anniversaries, or just for fun. We support artists and producers working from home alongside collectable brands from all over the globe. We are proud to stock Helen Beard’s illustrated dailyware, Michele Fabbricatore’s mythological sculptures and Donna Wilson’s distinctive designs alongside the otherworldly fantasy creations of Qubus from the Czech Republic and many more. Our boutique will lift your spirits, indulge your imagination and leave you grinning like a Cheshire Cat.
The Mock Turtle is a dreamworld created by born and bred “cockle towner”, Lotti Summers. Accountant by day and escapist by night, Lotti’s inspiration comes from her deep love of the sea, always a hop, skip and a sandcastle away. When the day’s work comes to an end you can often find her frolicking with her little girl on the beach, or looking for fairies by the waterfall in the woods.
We’re developing our online shop so you can take The Mock Turtle with you into whatever rabbit hole you choose to go.
