Presence of Mann sell a wide range of Manx themed goods, many unique to the Island, tartan kitchen wear, cushions, glassware, books and greetings cards. Suzanne commissions artwork from Manx artists such as Julia Ashby-Smyth, Meriel Burden and Chrissie Moss. Suzanne is passionate about promoting the Island and our wonderful products through her website and via the MostlyManx shop in Douglas.

MostlyManx and Presence of Mann have recently joined forces to promote Manx made products, together they hope to perpetuate the ‘Think Local, Buy Local’ initiative that has started on the Island. Suzanne now runs both shops, in Douglas and in Laxey, working closely with Laxey Woollen Mills.
