A select handful of quality establishments in the county have put their name behind The Parabola Project and Cornwall’s creative scene by stocking the publication in their store for you to pick up and buy.
Jam is a shabby, groovy, flock wallpapered shop stuffed with comfy sofas, Formica and battered old standard lamps. It’s been described as a culture shop where, as well as some outstanding musical treasures, there’s art, photography, design books and journals as well as contemporary fiction at great prices. Not to mention the rather special coffee.
