We are a family run, independent business located in Palace Avenue, Paignton, Devon. We've been family run now since 2013. We stock a fantastic range of items, including what we are known best for - our wide selection of stationery and our choice of art and craft supplies, which includes student and artist quality, to suit every need.
Our store name 'Axworthys' dates back to 1868 where it first started as a commercial printers located on Winner Street in Paignton. Axworthys then survived a devastating fire whilst the store was later located on Torquay Road. Lastly Axworthys moved to Palace Avenue, where it still stands proud serving customers today, ran by our family: Christy, Paul, Gemma, Joshua, Phil, Bailey (our golden labrador!) and a little help with some lovely family friends.
