Meet the Producers -
MostlyManx

05/08/22

For any newcomers, who are you and what do you do?

We are MostlyManx, a retail shop specialising in Manx produce hampers, and quality Manx products.

When did you establish your business?

The shop was launched in 2007, so we have been established for 15 years.

What inspired you to begin?

MostlyManx was launched to promote local artisans and their products.

How has your business grown since then?

We have a loyal customer base for our food hampers, and this has grown to include corporate customers and online sales. We also have a sister shop ‘The Manx Tartan Shop’.

Where are you based and what does that community mean to you?

We are in Nelson Street behind Marks & Spencer. Nelson street has a close, friendly community which includes Bottle Monkey, three beauty salons and a Thai café. We are close to the financial district, so handy for lunchtime shopping.

The Manx Tartan Shop is based at Laxey Woollen Mills, a natural location, as it is home to the two Manx tartans. It also means customers have a choice of where to collect their purchases from.

What does the Isle of Man Food & Drink Festival mean to you?

We see the Food & Drink festival as a way to reconnect with our lovely suppliers, who we normally only see as they rush in and out delivering to us, and of course to introduce new customers to our brilliant selection of hampers and Manx gifts.

Which other local producer(s) are you most looking forward to seeing this year?

We look forward to making contact with new local producers, who could contribute something new and exciting to our hamper offering.

What’s on the horizon for your business?

Looking ahead, we are continuing to grow our website for both shops (www.presenceofmann.com) and have a large selection of gifts and food hampers that are added to and refreshed weekly.

What is your signature dish/product?

We specialise in being a one-stop shop for all your Manx gifts, local artists greeting cards, and hampers, suitable for all occasions.
