AN independent Barnstaple store offering unique gifts, interiors and jewellery is celebrating one year in the high street.

Jon and Julia Barker own Just Trio, which has another branch in Bideford, and will be celebrating the anniversary with their customers this weekend.

The shop first opened on August 15 last year and since then has gone from strength to strength, recently expanding into upstairs rooms to showcase more products.

Julia said she fell in love with Just Trio's Barnstaple building and the decision was made to open another shop there.

"The idea really was to bring our brands over to Barnstaple," she said. "I think we offer something different on the high street. There is nobody like us in Barnstaple and we were always getting customers in Bideford asking if we could come over to Barnstaple, so that is why we did it."

Julia said Just Trio is constantly evolving and that if the right opportunity came up they would open another shop. We always get good feedback from our products, and people seem to enjoy the selection," she added.

Just Trio will be celebrating its anniversary on August 16 and 17. There will be gifts for the first 200 customers, glasses of Pimms and other offers.
