I recently visited my friend who lives in Manningtree in Essex and decided to visit the shop Wild Raspberry, the proprietor of which had contacted me in the past concerning bunting.
What a successful visit it was! The lovely Rebecca is now stocking several of my totes, brooches and some bunting and is a very helpful and generous lady. She offered me a great deal of advice and was wonderful to chat to.
The image is of Manningtree High Street. Borrowed from the Manningtree-Mistley website. It is a delightful little town with a few rather good charity shops and some nice little eateries. I was trying to find an image of the shop as the window is so lovely! But unfortunately my hunts have come up fruitless. It is a ceramics cafe which also stocks lovely things (of course! It stocks Cuppateaandcake!) and some amazing perspex jewellery which i REALLY have my eye on! Next time!
It was a great day.
