Shop tour - part 2
From the lobby doorway.
Cards and buttons on the table in the centre of the room.
Valerie Benton's knitting and Alison's bag.
It's funny. I thought I wanted a habadashery shop but soon realised I didn't want to be tied down to stocking things that didn't interest me like cross stitch kits and tapestry wools. The shop is selling contemporary British craft. In fact everything is made near here in Hampshire or Sussex. There's also the local sheep in the form of handspun and dyed wool. And nice cards by people in the area.
Plus some paint stacks I like, the hard back notebooks I like to use, some of my vintage buttons and second hand craft books. I hope you like everything too.
