Casa Fina
  view website

We are so pleased to tell you that life seems to be getting back to normal in many ways. The shop has been really busy and the city has enjoyed welcoming back the community - on some days the High Street has looked as it does on a December Saturday (and the temperatures haven't been far off either!).

July is SO exciting for us. Not only have we been nominated as finalists for two awards but we are going to be changing the face of Casa Fina with a full store revamp. If I told you that some of our fittings date back to 1983 when we opened you'd probably say that it was not before time.

It is also Indies Month and I was delighted to have been interviewed as part of a Heritage Funded project led by the Soroptomist International of Salisbury (a global movement working to educate, empower and enable opportunities for women and girls).

Salisbury Indies Month

July is the month when we celebrate all the incredible independent businesses in the city and this year the Salisbury Business Improvement District (BID) have designed these reusable shopping bags for us.

Spend just £20 in a participating indie and you can walk away with this useful cotton tote. Remember to bring it back each time you come shopping. You can show your support for our indie community and help the environment at the same time.

Did you know that Salisbury has a amazing new website - Experience Salisbury? Click the link on the image and read about the Indies Campaign there before having a look at this great new resource.


Finalists in the Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021

We are excited to have been nominated as finalists in the BEST INTERIORS STORE category of the Wiltshire Muddy Stilettos Awards. 

If you have time, please do follow the link (click on the image) to the website where you can vote for all your favourite businesses in the county.


Finalist in The Greats


Two award nominations in one month!

This time we are finalists for a national award that recognises gift retailers.

Casa Fina has been nominated as a finalist in the BEST INSTORE OR WINDOW DISPLAY category.

You can't help us with this one as it's an industry award but we'll let you know how we get on. 


19 - 22nd July only

We are having a really exciting refurbishment in the shop but this unfortunately means that we will have to close for 4 or 5 days. 

If you need to contact us during this period please email or message via social media as we won't be able to answer the phone.You can always reply to this email

We may open on Friday afternoon but will definitely be reopening the doors on Saturday 23rd at 9.30am.


Her Salisbury Story

I was thrilled to take part in this wonderful project celebrating Salisbury women - past and present. My story will hopefully be live by the end of the month so do take a look at the website (link in image). There are some fascinating stories and the 'modern' women have all recorded their interviews so sit back with a cuppa and have a listen.                  Best wishes, Susi
