Gosh! & Absolutely

You can find Rockpool Trading and Gosh! & Absolutely at 44 Southside Street in the heart of Plymouth’s historic Barbican area. These two independent businesses share a shop space and an ethos of locally made products from homewares to gifts and cards.

Both Rockpool Trading and Gosh! & Absolutely previously occupied units in the House that Jack Built - an independent shopping arcade. Their neighbouring units provided plenty of opportunity for planning the next step for both enterprises and the joint shop unit was opened in May 2019.

Rockpool Trading hosts a hand-picked selection of over 60 talented local artists and makers from across Devon and Cornwall. With a fantastic selection of artwork, jewellery, glass, children’s wear, and candles you are spoilt for choice when it comes to choosing the perfect gift for your friends and loved ones.  You can also find quality souvenirs of your visit to Plymouth with collectible magnets, prints featuring local scenes, Cornish soap and local chocolate amongst the products on offer.


Gosh! & Absolutely specialise in lamps and lampshades. There is a wide range of shapes, sizes, colours and designs of lampshade in store, but Rachel & Laura will also find fabrics to match your specifications or current décor so that you can find just the shade to complete your room. Their bottle lamps - made from gin, rum and other spirit bottles – are always popular, with Plymouth Gin (of course) being a particular favourite. Also on offer are vintage lamps, retro floor and table lamps, clocks, lanterns and accessories most of which can also be made to order on request.


Helen, Rachel & Laura look forward to welcoming you to the shop soon.
