The way ahead is interesting!

All sorts of options .... we stopped trading on Saturday, emptied on Sunday, cleaned on Monday and habded keys to the new folk (Kev & Sue) on Wednesday. Must admit that home looks a bit like a shop storeroom at the moment but that will pass:) That's what Paul hopes anyway!
All good wishes to Sue and Kev as they move 'Stolen From Susie' down the street into number 66. :)XX
A big thank you to all of our customers for playing their part in our seven successful years in Totnes. Now all that I have to do is to adjust to the joys of semi-retirement!!
At the moment I am concentrating upon plans for the fourth Nostalgic Mix Fair to be held in Totnes Civic Hall on Sat. March 31st.
Then, I have to decide where else to sell. I have already booked in for Lizzie's Vintage Rag Market in Frome on June 30th and for Homespun in Portscatho on August 5th.
Hopefully we will be able to sell at The Vintage and Handmade Fair in Chipping Sodbury on December 1st and the Vintage Bazaar Fair in Frome on December 15th ... all a long way off but that's great because the planning and looking forward is all part of the fun!
More details and more dates to follow soon.
By the way the labyrinth in the picture is at Schumacher College on the Dartington Hall Estate. As with all labyrinths the path ahead isn't always clear but walking it is a delight. I remember doing a candlelit walk there on All Hallow's Eve many years ago, long before I ever dreamed of having a shop ... so who knows what next? XXX


  1. I hope you both enjoy your semi retirement and hopefully will catch up with you in June at Frome.

  2. Wishing you all the best for these exciting adventures!
    Look forward to following you around those winding paths!!

  3. Generally I do not read post on blogs, but I would like to say that this write-up very pressured me to take a look at and do it! Your writing style has been amazed me. Thanks, very great post.
