Welcome to Blackwells of Hawkwell

Blackwells of Hawkwell was founded in 1973 supplying the Miniatures and Hobby Business.

All of our products have been carefully selected and many developed by us, with Blackwells of Hawkwell, you can buy with confidence, knowing we only sell high quality products.

Blackwells name has been around for more than 40 years supplying the model and Hobby Trade and retail sales worldwide. Believe it or not, we originally started out as a Grocers shop selling bacon on one side and Model Railways on the other side. Business was growing rapidly and we found it difficult to find suppliers in the UK for the Hobby side. We started to go to Trade shows around the world to find the suppliers of products we needed to supply our customers. This created a problem as we had to buy in much larger quantities. This tied up capitol, so we took the decision to supply other shops at Trade prices. This was very successful as many of the products we imported had not been seen by UK customers before.  It was time to stop selling Groceries and put all our energy into Hobby products.

It was not long after we started selling more Hobby products that my Mother decided she wanted to make a Dolls House and again, at this time, there were very few companies offering any Dolls House products. We knew from our travels abroad that we came across suppliers in Germany, USA, and Thailand, all selling a huge range of Dolls House products. We started in a very small way importing a range of Dolls House items and started selling them in our retail shop. To our amazement our customers came flooding in and this is how we started in the wonderful world of miniatures. I owe many thanks to my Mother.

Since then, we have closed our retail shop and moved our Trade section into a modern warehouse with offices and lots of storage space. We still Retail all our Model Rail and Hobby products worldwide and continue to expand the Dolls House business, adding exciting new product ranges like Glow Well Fires, Artisan 1/12 Miniatures, both these companies are owned by Blackwells and the manufacturing is done in the UK.

As a family run business, we are able to give first class service to all our customers, we care about quality and service and guess this has helped us to grow this big and still give unrivalled service to our customers worldwide.

We hope this information will give you some good reasons to choose us as the future partner in your business. Providing our customers with the best products and a good service for the best price is our main goal!!!
