That Design Store, St Albans

On Saturday I was having my hair done, and Apollo and I were chewing the fat about the changing High Street, and obviously blaming the loss of a lot of our individual shops down to the influx of discount shops, and the slippery slope from there.   After my new "do" I wandered into town, only to discover the opening of a new Shop, where the old Whittards used to be, called That Design Store.
I had to have a look see, and I wasn't disappointed, it was full of lovely designer goods, from gorgeous lighting, champagne buckets, candles (that I NEED in my life), and other kitchen accessories (can never have enough)!
 












It reminded me of a scene from my favourite all time show "Absolutely Fabulous".......

Eddie: I'm opening a shop, Pats.
Patsy: Ooh, what are you going to sell?
Eddie: Oh, just gorgeous things, you know.
Patsy: Ooh, lovely.
Eddie: Gorgeous, tasteful, little stylish little gorgeous things.

The candles I was particularly drawn to, as they were made out of recycled wine bottles, and they smelled beautiful!  I love wine, I recycle everything I can, and I love candles.   These will definitely be on my Christmas list!

This is an unsponsored post, but I thought I'd share the love, as definitely some great Christmas present ideas in there, so go have a look!

Some more of this back in our lives would be fabulous! IMHO, though I wouldn't say no to a Primark - fickle thing that I am!
Thanks for reading!
