Hoi Polloi has been trading since 1997. Our original shop was in Surbiton. We have had three different locations in Surbition during this time, "Original Hoi" in Victoria Road, "Old Hoi" in Brighton Road and "New Hoi" in Brighton Road, which closed on Saturday 27 August 2016. We now physically trade from our shop in Claygate, Surrey, which opened in November 2009.  Our online shop, went live in May 2010 and is growing from strength to strength. Our mission is to provide beautiful gifts, women's clothes and furniture/interiors for people  and their homes. At any one time, we physically stock in store approximately 300 different items. In addition, Claygate, also sells a selection of lovely (many made locally) cards and wrap. We plan to expand our womenswear and range of handbags, both in store and online. 

We have a reputation for excellent customer service, providing beautiful products at very reasonable prices.  Our stock is constantly being replaced by new items and we sometimes find it a challenge to keep our website completely up to date with such new products. Thus, this online shop is not a substitute for regularly visiting our Claygate store. Please look at the Contact Us page for details on how to find us. We look forward to seeing you.

Meanwhile, we hope you will enjoy browsing and hopefully buying (our payment gateways, PayPal am Klarna are 100% secure) in our online shop.

If you are reasonably local, try "Click and Collect" and save on delivery costs.


PS  Please see the "Contact Us" section for details of our opening times. This shop is, of course, open 24/7.
