Owned and run by Shayne & Hazel Adams, Kaboodle has been open in Ludlow since 2000.

In a slight diversification from our brief, they also have a shop in Church Stretton that they opened in 2004, but they are true to the ethos of Only In Ludlow if not the strict definition! Both Hazel and Shayne had a background in retail before opening Kaboodle, both of them having worked for other Ludlow shops – Roundabout Stationery and Clearview Stoves.

Kaboodle sells a whole gamut of gifts, homeware and clothes much of it ethically traded. At the rear of the shop is a wide selection of clothing much of it sourced from Nepal where Kaboodle sponsors a teacher at the charity Classroom in the Clouds.

The front section of the shop includes a wide selection of jewellery plus a fantastic selection of small gifts including a brilliant fake slug when I visited.

Opening hours:

Monday-Friday: 10 – 5
Saturday: 9.30 – 5.30
Sunday: 10.30 – 4.30
