A Saturday treat........Orange Tree, Exeter ........ ( where else?!)


Guess where I've been today ?! There's a clue ;-)

Like I once said before...old and new, side by side, each getting on with their daily life.
We were feeling rather fruity today so whilst my dear DH went to the 'Apple' shop, I opted for 'Orange'.

Today, I'm going to take you inside 'Orange Tree' for a bit of cyber, retail therapy.

I drooled as I walked around. The very nice salesman allowed me to 'snap' to my hearts content.
Not only do I want this chair..I want the monkey as well ;-)


Lots of basketware, wicker etc. I bought a green basketware trug.
Fun tableware...

Even in the midst of all these lovely fripperies , she can't bring herself to smile, can she?!



More comfy chairs...


Tick tock...

A good selection of Emma Bridgewater pottery...

Bling bling...

All the usual Kidston treats...

And after that, I was so worn out that I needed to find a suitable place for 'refreshments'!

Hello Sal
My head swivelled in the Exeter direction as we whizzed past at high speed yesterday on our way home. I must persuade Mr C & C that we need some retail therapy next time we are down in wonderful Devon. Especially if you have wonderful emporiums like The Orange Tree. We didn't even get to Dart Valley Farm which is a favourite stop off..

Love
Michelex
