Our Story

In this enchanting Flower Shop on the edge of the county town of Barnstaple, North Devon, you will find an eclectic mix of beautiful flowers, quirky, interesting gifts, cards and vintage furniture.

Twigs Flower Shop was established in 1999 by Deryn Northam and over the past two decades has gained a reputation for exceptional flowers and service

Lauren joined Deryn in 2009 and now manages the shop. Both are classically trained florists but prefer a more natural approach to flower styling. They have a real creative flair, an eye for the unusual and a particular appreciation for colour, balance and texture.

TWIGS relocated three times, finally moving from the high street in 2017 to a lovely shop in Pilton, the oldest part of Barnstaple. There is a wonderful room for workshops and wedding consultations and a cutting garden, courtesy of Toby, an artist and Landscape Gardener, who has become an integral part of the team, especially when setting up big installations and overheads.

In 2019, Deryn's daughter Lily, bought the house next door to the shop and is responsible for all the interesting finds and for the wedding hire and display items, so TWIGS is definitely here to stay!
