Nostalgia at No.1 - Shepton Mallet is OPEN!
As many of you are probably aware, Niki's shop Nostalgia at No.1
opened it's doors for the first time today. I am lucky enough to live not far from Shepton Mallet. Soon after dropping off Miss P at school, I headed for Shepton Mallet.
Yesterday's post on Niki's blog was very tantalising, it was full of gorgeous pictures. I spent a good half an hour last night taking in all those beautiful items on display.
As I entered the shop, I was given a warm greeting by Niki. The shop feels very homely and welcoming. The lighting creates a warm and cosy atmosphere. If you like the photos you certainly won't be disappointed as you walk around inside the shop.
I didn't take any pictures to begin with, too absorbed with taking it all in.
Niki and her husband have put a lot of work in to creating this beautiful shop and it certainly shows.
It was lovely seeing Lizzie again who also popped in with her husband. Whilst I was there, several people came in and expressed their delight as they walked around.
Naturally I came back with a few things, which I am very pleased with.
If you like vintage, antiques and handmade items, I urge you to have a day out in the area and visit Niki's shop in Shepton Mallet, it really is worth the trip!
After I left Niki's shop, I popped over to another lovely shop just a few doors away called Number 21, owned by Belinda and her husband. More about that shop in my next post...
