After a few false starts I will be opening my online and actual shop on 28 June,
The actual shop is in the basement of my home at MONUMENT VIEW, TOWNFOOT, ALSTON, CUMBRIA CA9 3HX and will open from 10am to 5pm every Thursday and Friday.
I will be selling high quality handmade handbags, cushions, cushion covers, lightweight jackets, belts and aprons and anything I can sew. I will also have a limited stock of kitchenalia from previous trading.
Cushions will be available in various sizes with quality pads, or you can buy just the covers. I will have sets of similar cushions in the same size and fabric, and sets in complimentary fabrics and colours.
I source vintage fabric for my covers including, William Morris, Sanderson, Osborne & Little, Designers Guild, Lee Jofa, Laura Ashley and Romo. I also have a huge selection of covers in both traditional and modern designs. Personal shoppers can also choose fabric from my extensive stock of fabric and I will take orders for covers.
Another service I offer personal shoppers will enable them to take cushions home to try with their decor and return if necessary by post or in person.
My full length and half length aprons incorporate vintage designs including WWII wraparound aprons. Personal shoppers can try them for size before buying.
My handmade bags are totally unique and come in all shapes, sizes, fabrics and colours. I have them all photographed on my site.
I will have the facility to take payment by credit or debit card
I hope to see you in my shop but if you are unable to visit everything can be purchased online via my website www.theoldparlour.net. I will make your buying experience as easy as I can, I promise!
