Shopping for gifts can be a chore; time consuming and it’s hard to know if you’ve got it right until the moment of giving. Inspiration is the key, and Sinclairs on Glossop Road will inspire even the most lacklustre shopper!

Sinclairs began life in 1949 when Edna Sinclair opened shop in Watergate, Doncaster, selling china and crystal. Eighteen years later the next generation, John Sinclair, opened his first shop on Glossop Road. As the shop grew kitchenware and luxury leather goods were added, making it an ideal place to get that certain someone something special.

With the help of Project Orange, a brand new building was commissioned for Sinclairs, which was completed in 2006. Sleek and modern in looks, Sinclairs stands out as a real gem of architectural beauty; in fact the finished product was such a success that in 2007 it was awarded the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Yorkshire White Rose Award. Outside-Images-Independent-Sheffield-4

The product that Sinclairs now stock has also expanded and moved on with the times; the discerning gentlemen can find cufflinks, pocket squares and premium accessories & leather goods from Hugo Boss, Paul Smith and Dunhill. For the ladies Sinclairs has an extensive choice of handbags, clutches, purses, and accessories from designer brands including Michael Kors, Longchamp and Paul Smith.


Hunter wellies for adults and children sit alongside a wide range of Barbour clothing and accessories which will appeal to every countryside lover, and if you are looking for traditional, you can still find quality fine china and crystal – you don’t get much better!


Sinclairs is a story of traditional meets contemporary and they have managed to do it extremely well. As you walk in the door you can smell the fine leather and admire the quality that surrounds you; I remember going in with my mum as child and gazing in admiration at all the pretty things, and I can tell you not much has changed in twenty years!

So if you’re after some inspiration for a present or just want to treat yourself to something fancy then pop in and enjoy the Sinclairs experience.
