Moment in Time

I'd like to say welcome to my new follower Paula - nice to have you on board.

I've just found this divine little second-hand shop called 'Moment in Time', or more to the point my sister B found it and steered me in the right direction. We both have the same tastes in home furnishings and decor etc and this really fits the bill for both of us - loving anything vintage or shabby chic. B found an old chalk board for her kitchen last week and told me about a few bits that I might like so I found myself winging my way over there today in light of the awful damp and miserable weather.



 Due to personal reasons, the couple who own the shop Jo and Brian turned their hobby of collecting and doing up pieces of furniture into a small business. They've only been open for two weeks and are a real find. I even had a cup of coffee made for me - it's those little touches that add to the charm.



The photos aren't great as I only had my phone camera to rely on
and apologies for this blurred picture



It's one of those shops where your eyes are everywhere - a bit like a child in a sweet shop - you don't know what to look at first.

This is what I bought - to fill a small corner in my guest room


And I couldn't resist these sweet bone china tea cups and saucers

  1. Oo I love shops like that - we don't have anything like it in our nearest market town - I am soooo jealous. Love your purchases.

    1. They are lovely aren't they. I've since found a hairline crack in one but I may use it to put some pot purée in or a small plant maybe. Patricia
