About Big Sky

Big Sky was opened in May 2010 by sisters Kim White and Karen Sheehy.

The two old birds finally came to roost in Great Missenden High Street, with its mix of small independent retailers and the wonderful Roald Dahl Museum.

Having worked together for 22 years in retail, we decided to follow our hearts by running a shop that reflected Karen’s love of gathering interesting and quirky items for the home and Kim’s passion for the garden and so Big Sky evolved as an eclectic mix of beautiful objets for inside and out.

When asked what we stock in our shop the reply is often “everything you don’t need”.

We may not need most of the beautiful items that we sell but life would be very dull without them. Being able to cast your eyes on lots of “lovely” brightens your day and gladdens the heart. Whether it’s a simple sea shell or some hand printed English linen, all give pleasure and enhance our surroundings.

Our stock is constantly changing, as we love hunting for new items and finding new suppliers to top up the shelves. Just look at the gallery page to see some of the products available.

So if you feel like a browse and a chat come and have look around Big Sky. 

We look forward to seeing you.

    Having lived close to GM for years but now moved away, find every excuse to visit Big Sky whenever I’m around..always new and lovely things to be tempted by and wonderful, personal service to go with it. Renovating an old house in Rutland gives me lots of reasons to visit and leave with a smile on my face!
