Welcome to the The Tinderbox, a delightful shop set in the heart of Colyton, the most rebellious town in Devon.

With an eye for the theatrical, the imaginative, and the beautiful, we have a passion for unusual gifts and toys - particularly those with a nod to the past. We also stock a mouth-watering range of packaged confectionery and a sumptuous collection of hand finished loose chocolates. At The Tinderbox every item is carefully selected and very little is plastic based, with an emphasis on wooden and paper products.

And for those that live a little further afield, we also sell a selection of our gifts, automatons, toy theatres and dietary chocolates through our online shop, The E - Box.

Opening Hours - Mon & Weds - 9am to 1pm, Tue, Thu, Fri & Sat - 9am to 4pm. Closed Sun.
