James Smith & Sons


Independent Shops

You would be forgiven in thinking that you had travelled back in time when you walk into James Smith & Sons. The shop and its products have changed very little since it was opened in 1830 and it is the place in London and maybe even Britain, to buy high quality umbrellas and walking sticks.

Designs range from the inexpensive plain black umbrellas to the expensive with carved birds heads on the ends. All walking sticks are unique, made to fit your size and any design (including some very Harry Potter looking ones with silver handles).

Even if you are not buying it's a great place to have look around as every umbrella and stick is handmade and unique.
