The Honiton Lace Shop was re-opened in 1984 by the Page family who took it over from its previous owners when it was more of a gift shop than a lace shop. Since then the shop has been built up into one of the worlds top shops dealing in antique lace and lace making equipment, and boasted a world wide customer base, both of direct visitors and mail order customers. Now, due to changing business and customer requirements, the shop has closed its doors as an outlet open daily to the public, but has re-established itself as the leading web based mail order outlet for all its stock

Previously located in the High Street of the market town of Honiton in the East Devon region of England, the shop was ideally located for anyone wanting to spend time browsing through our extensive stock of lace, books & lace equipments. With easy access to local parking and the railway station, the shop had become a main attraction on many peoples 'must see' list when visiting the west country.

The shop (now strictly by appointment only) has a massive stock of the finest antique laces from the 16th century to the early 20th century. Items of antique lace range from small fragments for inclusion in reference sample collections, to complete shawls, flounces, collars, handkerchiefs and other pieces ideal for specialist collections or even for wearing. We can source antique lace for you if are searching for anything special, and will happily identify and value your lace if you so wish. Obviously we are also very interested in purchasing good antique lace if you are wishing to sell. This appointment only shop & wedding veil studio gives the visitor ample opportunity to try on one of the many stunning Victorian lace wedding veils in the peace of a dedicated studio. Advice on cleaning, preservation, mounting and wearing of antique veils can be sought, and if brides to be would like to bring along their wedding dress, veils can be tried with it. For the lace maker we carry a small range of pillows, bobbins and all the bits and pieces required for the art of Honiton lace making. We often have antique lace equipment for sale as well.

Not only do we have lace making equipment for the experienced lacemaker, but we also supply Honiton lace kits for the beginner to this fascinating craft. Help is always available just a phonecallor e-mail away should you require any guidance with your lace making needs. We ship throughout the world and have a secure credit card order form for safe and secure data transmission.
