The Violet May Mug is our homage to Sheffield’s most famous record shops. Exclusive to The Sheffield Guide.
Violet May’s Record Shops in Sheffield are as fondly remembered as any stores the city has been home to. Run by the inimitable Violet May Barkworth at various locations throughout the city centre from the 60s through the 80s, the shops had an incredible and awe-inspiring collection of new and old vinyl records — plus if there was a title you couldn’t find, Violet would make sure it was there for your next visit.
Any purchase you make goes towards supporting The Sheffield Guide, local content creators, artists and businesses.
Every item is made-to-order, especially for your purchase! Where possible we support the local economy by sourcing our products and services within the Sheffield city region. Additionally, we prioritise independent businesses that use ethical practices and materials where possible. Where it is has not been possible to source to our high standards within the city region, we utilise businesses as close as possible.
Thank you for your support.
