portrait of Nancy Waters

items of note is a modern gift shop, showcasing independent brands in retail residencies and online.

The concept was launched by Nancy Waters, who was editor of AnOther Magazine for a decade before opening items of note as an outlet for her obsession with finding (and wrapping) perfect gifts for her friends & family.

items of note are often special commissions, collaborations or limited editions, and have all been personally selected. They are exceptional things made by brilliant people, who are emotionally connected to what they do. Whether it's a present you need or just some self love, we’ve got an item of note for you.
