Its not often I can walk into a shop and think WOW...but last week at Red House in the historic market town of Bedale, North Yorkshire...I did just that.
As "hunters of all things vintage"....Kevin and Janet Stevens search out the quirky and unusual to create a true Aladdin's cave.
Upcycled furniture catching the attention of the passerby in the window...
And inside....the industrial...an old workbench, lighting and maps of Great Britain.
Things are not staged...but cleverly put together with just enough "clutter" to make your eye wander through cabinets
and search under tables.
The deceptive shop front opens up to a long back room and stairs leading to the next floor,
Where, to my great delight.... I found another French linen nightshirt with red initials to add to my wardrobe.
Natural oatmeal coloured, slubby linen with a stand up cotton collar....perfect fit!
Red House is a refreshingly good vintage shop, with interesting stock and very nice owners....well worth a trip if you are in the North Yorkshire area.
Meanwhile it is all go at the Cloth Shed for the next two Fairs...a hand worked "hooky" mat with cute sheep and lamb design....
A couple of pieces of painted furniture, rusty metal rocking horse and two very tall lamp bases will be going in the Land Rover this afternoon,
And yes...that dog gets everywhere.
I don't mind him sitting on my shelves....out of the way,
But I do draw the line at sofas....
Hope you all have a good weekend and pretty please....no more rain....I think we have had enough now.
