About Us


Awen Teifi was established in 1999 by Geraint and Siân James in the thriving rural, coastal town of Cardigan as a Welsh bookshop including cards, toys and tasteful, traditional Welsh gifts. Over the years, the business has expanded from a traditional Welsh bookshop to offering a large toy section including farm toys (Britains, Bruder, Siku and Brushwood), Lego and many traditional, wooden toys. Awen Teifi's bottom floor houses the farm section alone and is a paradise for our customers who's interests lie within agriculture. One could easily spend hours looking through the farm sheds and tractors! In addition to the shop, the Gallery has played a key role in the broadening of Awen Teifi as a business, and is the home to various artists’ works including those of the late Aneurin Jones (prints), Meirion Jones, Joanna Jones and most recently Wyn Owens, Vladislas and Alun Ifans.
