Warmest greetings to you, and thank you for dropping by.

Welcome to the online home of Head in the Clouds – a happy boutique of rainbow-infused beauties, magical smells and fabulous fun in the charming and award-winning Norwich Lanes.

The shop is now in lockdown, and so won’t be open to the public for a while.

During the lockdown, we are continuing to trade with mail orders.

If you’d like to place an order, please write to us or fill in the form here. You can also leave a message on our answering machine at the shop on 01603 620479.

Thank you for all your support and love.

Good luck, good health, good sanity, and a non-contact touch of love and peace to you all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Head in the Clouds!

With colossal thanks to you, our cosmic shop has completed 49 circuits around the Sun!

Sadly we cannot all be here to caress its shabby shelves and colourful clobber, and so from afar we raise a glass to its many magical charms, and pray we’re out of lockdown to properly celebrate the half-century.

But these are the times we live in, and the unusual circumstances we face, and we must come together, apart, to come together and party another day.

Hippy Heaven!

At the heart of old Norwich, Head in the Clouds is an Aladdin’s Cave of oriental handicrafts, ethnic fashions, paraphernalia and assorted beautiful, fun and smelly things.
