gentle was born out of a love of vintage and secondhand. this has manifested itself in two main areas of focus for gentle: vintage and pre-loved objects for the home, and secondhand books.

gentle vintage

it was the thrill of collecting objects with cultural and personal histories that culminated into this gentle shop's eclectic collection. each object offered in the shop carries with it a story and design history.

there is so much beauty already existing in the world—and we endeavour to celebrate that.
