Sinead started Bristol Trading Post in 2017. After many years of working in a variety of shops, both during and after her studies in Sociology, she found her passion lay in what had previously been thought of as a pocket money job.
Once she decided to go it alone and start her own business the ‘pocket money’ work became a near obsession. Using her background as a Sociologist, Sinead observed the vital place local shops have within communities. On her travels through America and Mexico she saw many ‘Trading Posts’ providing both goods and gossip to people from all walks of life.
And so, Bristol Trading Post was born. A friendly neighbourhood shop with excellent provisions for your home and loved ones. Every item is hand-picked by Sinead who considers the origins of each product to ensure a fair wage and good working conditions.
