Lakin and Boone was set up by Chloe Kiss, after she struggled to find interesting and long lasting gifts for her niece and nephew in the small city of Truro in Cornwall. She was bored of high street chain shops with the same products and wanted to support small and emerging brands.

With a background in marketing and PR, first in toys and then in organic children's' clothing, Chloe realised the importance of promoting products that she believed in and only sells items she would use in her own home. She has a big family of product testers and her own little product tester (her son Atlas) was born in 2019.

The shop is currently closed to due Coronavirus but you can find us again soon in Lemon Street Market, Truro.
