About Us


Great Danes is a unique gift shop that specialises in Danish designed items. We also carry many other Scandinavian products.

The shop has been in existence for over 16 years. It was started by two Danish women who ran it until they decided to retire in May 2014. As long term residents of Frinton and with Birgitte being Danish, it was natural for us to take over this lovely shop. We plan to carry on the great traditions started by Kirsten and Aase as well as add our flair to this growing business.

We have added an electronic shop front - gr8danes.uk - where you can shop 24 hours a day! Please visit us online or in our shop.
We are located in Frinton On Sea - the east coast of England - famous for sandy beaches. Please come and visit us soon.

Best regards, Birgitte (aka B) , Mike, Jayne, Lisa and Tim
