Welcome to Tallships Trading we are a Nautical themed shop, selling furniture, models, paintings, ceramics, gifts and nautical bric-a-brac. Current best sellers include model boats, tide clocks, barometers,telescopes, compasses, globes, ties and cufflinks.

The shop has a distinctive look which makes it popular with both visiting and local customers, and has successfully built a reputation for quality products and good service.

Shortly after opening in 1995 the shop was reviewed in Homes and Gardens magazine by Rebecca Gibson.She wrote;

''John and Louise Spargo have transformed a former travel agency into a shop so nautical you can almost feel the floorboards rock beneath you. The Spargo''s both have a background in interiors- Louise was a furniture consultant at Harrods, John was a restaurant designer- and both have a passion for Cornwall. So this shop was the perfect answer to two untimely redundancies in London''.

 This Web Site has been created for both existing and hopefully many new customers. Whenever possible we like to speak to customers regarding their requirements so that we can give advice on what products are available and most suitable for them. We buy from a large range of suppliers and are unable to show all the products available on this site, so if you don''t see what you are looking for give us a ring we can send photos and details by e-mail of items not shown here.
