Naive Paintings


Rose Lane is an independent shop in the heart of St Ives selling homeware, art, ephemera and antiques. On the corner of Rose Lane, our Grade II listed store sells naive paintings and primitive pieces sourced in the UK, Europe and America. Just around the corner from the cottage in which Alfred Wallis used to live, the shop has been restored with Victorian floorboards and black-painted beams. Antique apothecary cupboards display vintage books, ceramics and ephemera.
