Antidote Vintage - My Woollies Now in Stock!!

We've woken up this morning to the first frost of the autumn.  White frosted roof tops and clean crisp air; I just love this time of year!

This is a post I should have done back in the summer but didn't, the disorganised person that I am!!  And I'm linking in with Lakota's Ta-Dah Tuesday because, do you know what, I'm pretty pleased with the below!! :o)

In the spring, we were contacted by the lovely Annie of Antidote Vintage, a charming shop in Norwich selling an eclectic mix of vintage clothing and accessories.  The shop was being re-launched to include the work of local artisans and we were asked whether we wanted our corsages and knitwear included, which, of course, we did!


Unfortunately we couldn't make it to the official re-opening but we did pop up the day before, with our trusty camera, to have a sneak peak and a good old nosey at what was going to be on offer. 





A local newspaper did a piece on the new collections.


The article used a little bit of artistic licence because I'm actually based in Suffolk, not Norfolk, and obviously the jumpers aren't my design, I just chose the colours, but I figure any publicity is good publicity, right?? :o)

The shop is lovely and very welcoming.  It was once an apothecary and still has some of the original apothecary shop fittings which provide the perfect backdrop for the vintage and handmade goodies on offer. 

A
ntidote currently has the two below jumpers in stock and they have also taken some of our turbans - perfect winter head warmers!


If you're in Norwich, why not take a trip to Antidote Vintage, Upper St Giles Street, where you'll be met with very friendly service and will find some lovely items of vintage clothing as well as some of our woollies to keep out the cold this winter :o)
