One of Guru’s three units in Court Arcade in the late 1970’s – Window dressing by Lorraine Bailey! This arcade was ahead of its time, as it was a truly exciting and alternative place to be. Over the years there was a saleroom, a diner, a Spencers trousers shop, a couple of comic shops, an American clothing shop, a retro shop, a joke and magic shop, a wool shop, several record shops (including ours), a pet shop (with snakes which sometimes escaped), a jewellers, a wool shop, a baby wear shop, a gift shop and of course Guru Boutique!!

About Guru Boutique

This is a blog about a small family run fair trade gift, clothes and card shop, which at the date of writing has managed to survive for almost five decades. In 1971 the idea took shape for this business, but it began life under the name of Quaker Girl. In 1972 it became Guru Boutique. Guru Boutique is much more than a business, it is a way of life and a labour of love!
