Sharon and Steve moved with their three young boys from North West London to the village of Dunster in Somerset in January 2005 to take over the running of Jacobs of Dunster. Jacobs of Dunster has been a well-established retail outlet in the village for many, many years. The shop is situated in the building of the Olde School House which is centrally placed in the High Street in the heart of the beautiful medieval village.
Since taking over in February 2005 Sharon has introduced many new lines to expand our offering. We have a great range of Ladies, Gents and Childrens fashions and accessories to match. From separates to suits, quality handknits, silks, Cashmere, linens and Velvets and fine quality traditional Country wear.
