Vintage Now Interiors


It's been a long time coming but at last it's here!

Newton Abbot has its own vintage interiors shop ,

whose owner just happens to be a very good friend of mine!



We rushed along to the grand opening , this morning and

we arrived just in time to see the red ribbon being

cut, by the lady mayoress of Newton Abbot.



With that, we stepped over the mat....



...and into this delightful new shop.



What struck me was how Jane had carefully thought out how

she was going to display everything to its best.

I liked the feeling of space and the fact that nothing was too crammed in.

Sometime shops can be spoilt by too much on display.

This was not the case here.




And so here, for your pleasure....oodles of eye candy!



A little peep at what's on offer!



A good mix of old ...



...and not so old.



Handmade...





China and glass goodies...





Vintage enamel...



Vintage crochet (all the rage of course!)



Essential kitchen items...



Snippets of 'you know who'...!

...not overdone but just a subtle addition here and there.




More china!



Vintage quilts...scrummy or what?!

And.... not forgetting the creaky wooden floorboards

...and gorgeous rugs!



A welcome cupcake...

(I forgot to grab one but apparently they were very tasty!)



A very lovely, peaceful environment in which to browse

and take a little step into the past.



Well done Jane!

We can now put 'Newton Abbot' and 'vintage' in the same sentence!!

And if you are 'in the area' you can't miss

'VINTAGE NOW INTERIORS'

It's right near the famous clock tower.

How wonderful that shop!
But because here in Italy there are not?
I often visit your blog, give me a lot of information
the vintage shops in the area, so when I know where to go.
I did well in the spring.
Thanks Susy
