I was just trawling through some snaps I took last summer. It seems like a lifetime ago now! When I visit my parents in East Sussex with the children, we always take a trip down to Hastings, on the South coast. The old town is full of delightful boutiques and shops selling quirky homewares and vintage goods. I took these pictures in Butlers Emporium and thought I’d share them with you, as this shop is like walking into a different time – rustic, reclaimed shop fittings, bare floorboards and peeling paint act as the backdrop for carefully selected homewares with a vintage vibe. It’s just beautiful. Well worth a visit if you’re ever in that neck of the woods.
After a wander round the shops, it is of course compulsory to go and get fish and chips on the seafront, followed by an ice cream for true retro seaside pleasure!
