Heritage Re-Loved

A couple of weeks ago, I happened upon a new vintage shop just setting up - I knew you would want me to share with you. I didn't have my camera (!!! I know - I always have my camera!!), but the lovely lady who owns the shop said that she would send me some photographs to share - so here are a few of them.

The shop is at Elsecar Heritage Centre, Elsecar near Barnsley (and just next to Wentworth for a full day out!) and she is full to the brim with vintage fabrics and china etc, all at very reasonable prices.
Apparently, a lot of what she is currently selling is from her own collection, and it is all very lovely. She has some gorgeous vintage aprons etc
If you are in the area, call in and say hi to Julie - and tell her I sent you - but don't blame me if you come out with more fabric for your stash! Julie's daughter told me that her mum has always owned fabric and haberdashery shops in one shape or another and now is keen to teach and will be running workshops from here too.
I wish you great success Julie and Jo. xxx

It looks like a lovely shop. I think I'd have to leave my purse at home if I visited otherwise I'd spend far too much.
