About Us

Welcome to Chriskindl Online!

Right at the outset we would like to congratulate the previous owners, Amanda and Cornelia, on the amazing job they have done with this shop in Saundersfoot.

Together they started Christkindl in 2004 and built it up over 17 years to be the established and well-loved shop it is now.  We hope we can continue to build on the fantastic reputation Chriskindl enjoys both in Wales and the rest of the UK.

And so, it gives us great pleasure to introduce ourselves to you.  We are the new owners, Neil and Lesley Bartholomew, and we took over the running of Christkindl store in Saundersfoot at the beginning of December 2020.  We are also thrilled to welcome Dilys Photography Gallery on board whose photography gallery was located on the other side of the street! The gallery is now at the front of the shop where you can browse and purchase her many beautiful and framed photographs of Pembrokeshire. Beth, who has worked in the gallery with Dilys since 2015, is now the manager of Christkindl, a great transition to ensuring that both Dilys' Photography customers and Christkindl customers still have the continuity they know and love from both businesses. 

We always had plans to 'go online' but thanks to Covid and the time that lockdown has afforded, we have been able to set this up much sooner than originally intended. We hope you love the collections we have included here.  It is just a fraction of what we have in store so we are continuously adding more products and ranges. 

Christkindl, for a number of years, has been proud stockists of Jellycat, Joma Jewellery, Shoeless Joe, East of India, Lua, Caroline Gardiner, Gisela Graham, Cole & Co, Katie Loxton and many more.  It continues to be, but we have also introduced a few new ranges of our own including ROKA London, a range of delightfully stylish unisex rucksacks and handbags, and Crew Clothing Company, with a wide selection of both women's and men's clothing and accessories, so that the boys won't feel too left out! We have also expanded our local artists section. Peter Bury's beautiful slate collection has now been joined by Dilys Gallery favourite, Natural Creations Wales' stunning driftwood cottages and new comers, Freshwater Fragrances and Melts by the Sea, two unique wax melts brands that reflect the beauty of Pembrokeshire's gorgeous coastal areas. 

If something is out of stock, don't worry, we have noted it and more will be arriving soon!  If there is something in particular you know we sell in-store and we haven't yet featured it, please just drop us a line.

That just leaves us to say... browse and enjoy...
