About Us

Joan the Wad Shop Polperro Cornwall is renowned worldwide for their famous lucky Cornish Piskey Charms, which are believed to be bringers good fortune, health, wealth and happiness. Along with our vast range of ‘Cornish’ sterling silver jewellery and ‘St Justin’ pewter jewellery.

Joan The Wad shop has been and remains in the same ownership for over 20 years. Under the current ownership Joan The Wad Shop was brought back to life and first re-opened its doors in Fore Street, Polperro, back in the early/mid 1990s.

Joan The Wad traded at this location for many years and word quickly spread with visitors flocking to our door from far and wide.

In 1999 we opened our second shop in Lansallos Street, Polperro, specialising in exquisite jewellery from Cornwall.

January 2013 we introduced our very own exclusive Cornish prints and canvases by ‘Cornish Image Gallery’.

January 2014 the decision was made to close the Fore Street shop and relocate / combine both shops under one roof, in our Lansallos Street shop.

The original wood carvings of the lucky Cornish Piskie’s remain on display along with hundreds of testimonies received from all over the world.

Boasting the largest selection of genuine Piskie’s & Pixies in the world which are genuinely made in Cornwall, along with one of the largest if not the largest selection of ‘St Justin’ jewellery in the Uk and our extensive range of ‘Cornish’ sterling silver jewellery,why not pay us a visit in person next time you are visiting the South West.
