The range consists of everything you probably didn't really know you wanted with some very colourful plastic decoration. Great to browse but how practical and long lasting the items are who knows

I first came upon this shop about three years ago when l fell in love with a kettle in the Dahlia range. This has gradually been added to on each visit to York. I now have a toaster, mugs , a tray and have just completed the set with a trio of light fittings. Unfortunately I think that the line is being discontinued. On the plus side there are so many wonderful and quirky bits and pieces that l shall have no trouble finding something that I cannot live without each time l visit York. The staff in the shop are friendly and helpful. Pylones is one of my must visit places in York.

Really pretty and colourful while quirky but really? Do you need a hammer with cherries on the handle?

Great little shop with many very colourful items which you never thought you might need to buy. Great for that odd knick-knack.

This is a fab little shop which is bright and colourful and makes you happy to be inside.

The shop sells lots of weird and wonderful gifts - ideal for getting something for that person who's awkward to but for or just a treat fir yourself.

Love this shop

We've visited their branches abroad and they are a delight. colourful, inventive. You buy things that you never knew you needed. For example, a pair of tiny wellington boots for the bathroom to hold our shavers and small scissors. :)

I had already discovered the Pylones shop on a trip to Oxford when I bought two mugs from the crea crea range. I knew there was a Pylones shop in York so on a trip there this month I hunted it out view a view to adding to my collection of mugs. Unfortunately one of the mugs was out of stock but was on display in the window and the assistant said that I could have that one at a discount if she couldn't find one in the back. We arranged to call back after looking around the rest of York.
When we got back to the shop the young lady had taken the mug from the display and got it ready to box up and gave us the 10% discount she had promised. We had a lovely chat whilst she was sorting this out.
If you like real colour in your life and are not worried about having everything to match then this is the shop for you. The photos on the website do not do justice to the colour, interspersed with bits of mirroring. The mugs cheer me up everytime I use them. Trouble is there are lots of other things I would like to buy in the same range. I am off to Oxford again in August so maybe it will be a teapot this time.
Word of warning, the shops are very small so don't go in wearing backpacks as there would be a real risk of knocking over some of the displays.
