Whether you need a new coffee pot, a tool for the garden, a couple of screws, a key cut or your tools sharpening we are right here for you. You can find us nestling up against the northwest section of the York walls listening to the chiming of the bells from the Minster.
Heima was born from a love of making, mending, improving, and creating.
Since 2016 we have carefully built up the wondrous array of products we offer, focusing on things which are as useful as possible whilst also being conscious of our responsibility to our environment. We are purveyors of all things from candles to tea caddies, utensils to toothbrushes, teapots, watering cans, woodware, and paint. Our modest two rooms are home to a few thousand different practical products; everything but the proverbial kitchen sink!
Owner/shop keeper/tool sharpener/general helpful chap Maff Punton is a third-generation hardware store owner; he practically cut his teeth on garden hoses and broom handles whilst growing up in the environs of the family hardware shop. Maff will happily help with any of your queries and is a font of knowledge on many subjects such as lightbulbs, eco-friendly cleaning products, the best way to brew tea, recycling, woodwork, or the pure and unabated joy of making the perfect poached egg.
We want to be your go-to shop for all your practical and sustainable household needs: the aim of the game is to provide goods to help you with your projects or problem-solving. At the end of the day our mission is to offer good-quality goods at a fair price, which please the eye and ease your days. Simple as that. Sound good?
