Andrew & Kairen Bradley
whilst stopping in Settle on their way to the lakes in 2013 Andrew & kairen noticed a beautiful building with a ‘last unit to let’ sign. By March they’d opened Capella’s home & gift store in Settle, NORTH YORKSHIRE.
5 years later and they were able to complete their journey to the Lake District, where they found another gorgeous building. This is when Capella windermere was created.
“of course its not just the local community we serve - we love the mix of people we meet. there is a continuous stream of visitors from all over the region, the uk and the world.“
When Kairen and Andrew aren’t visiting our clients you’ll find them inside both of our stores throughout the week.

Laurie likes nothing better than discussing Farrow and Ball colours with the customers, unless it is talking to them about the beautiful faux flowers. Having moved to the Dales a few years ago, Laurie has fully embraced the life. She now creates solid silver jewellery, which is stocked in both shops, taking her inspiration from the fauna of the Dales.
Laurie helps across both stores.
