Number 21 - Shepton Mallet
As mentioned in my previous post, after having looked around Niki's new shop Nostalgia at No.1, I walked just a few yards away to another shop called Number 21. It is owned by Belinda and her husband Wayne. They have a wonderful selection of decorative antiques including some very unique pieces such as wooden prison doors that belonged to the Shepton Mallet prison dating back to the 1600's. You will also find a fine selection of furniture, crystal chandeliers, antique & vintage shoes, cushions, mirrors and other interesting items.
Belinda is an International Design, Marketing and Trend Consultant & Wayne specialises in Architectural reclamation. The perfect combination!
Belinda is very passionate about Shepton Mallet's future and is actively involved in attracting & generating more business and interest in the town centre. She has another blog called A Town in Somerset in which Belinda keeps us informed of new shops or events going on in Shepon Mallet.
Belinda's efforts are paying off. Niki is one of the ones who has decided that Shepton Mallet is 'the' place to open her shop.
After all, it is an ideal location for vintage/antique shops, as the Bath & West Showground (Shepton Mallet) hosts many Antique Fairs and flea markets throughout the year. So remember to pop in to Shepton Mallet's town centre if you are planning on attending an event at the Bath & West. You won't be disappointed!
Number 21 has been nominated Shop of the Month in this month's copy of Country Homes & Interiors Magazine (February 2010)
Congratulations to Belinda & Wayne!
Here is a little tour of the shop...
It is a beautiful photograph, I wonder who she is or was?

So, I may bump in to some of you on one of my visits to Shepton Mallet...
