My Story

The White Cart Company is based in Paisley and offer customers a range of unusual gifts, while also providing an avenue for local artists to sell their work.

We are a gift shop founded in the Paisley area.  When deciding on a name for our business we drew inspiration from our surroundings, selecting White Cart Company, deriving from the river that runs closest to our original premises. 

Our aim is to offer our customers a range of unusual gifts, while also providing an avenue for local artists to sell their work.  Our range of quality products and locally produced artisan items means you are never short of a different gift idea.

To us, Paisley is a place rich in character.  Stemming from its wonderful people, it has given us beautiful art, literature and music.  Opening a gift shop was something we always dreamed of; in recent time’s large outlets and shopping centres have drawn away from the local community and spirit and we wanted to help remedy that by having a shop which is welcome and caters to all.

Now supported by the City of Culture 2021 bid we can see the community spirit thriving again making us proud to support it.  

The bid has given people something to look forward to, allowing many of us to take a moment and appreciate all the great things Paisley has to offer us. 

We have seen an increase in all things local and emerging artists having the confidence and means to produce their own work. 

There is a real energy about the town. Hopefully that continues to gain momentum and can continue long into the future.
