It's a nomad life is delighted to have been invited to join the Antiques Young Guns website, which launched in October 2013. The Antiques Young Guns site has been created by Mark Hill, George Johnson and Gail McLeod. You can find out more about the creaters and Young Guns on the site and even browse stock to purchase!
Every month (or thereabouts) Vicky from It's a nomad life writes a blog post for Love Shrewsbury. You can read it on here too!
When I think about what it means to ‘Be green’ I think about walking rather than using the car, buying recycled paper products and turning lights off (although this in part comes from my father’s reiteration that our house was not, and thus should not resemble ‘Blackpool Illuminations’!).
We were lucky enough to visit Amsterdam Tribal Art Fair this month. Held every year, in a beautiful former church, the fair attracts a wide range of exhibitors from all over Europe.
If you have an interest in Tribal Art it really is worth visiting. Stands displayed a wealth of objects from Oceania, Africa, Indonesia, South-America, Tibet and the Philippines. Pieces available to buy included jewellery and sculptures, textiles, masks, implements and furniture.
The shop marks its first birthday this week and there will be celebrations taking place on Saturday 21st September.
We have often been described as a museum where you can buy things, so visiting the shop can be a really interesting experience!
If you are reading this post then you will be on our new website - launched in September 2013. Our branding and core values remain the same, but we are now a lot shinier and easier to use!
Over the following few weeks we will be updating the website with a lot more items, so if you are unable to visit our Shrewsbury shop you will be able to view and buy a lot of the items online.
The 4th July sees a national campaign celebrate Independent Retailers, in the aptly named Independents’ Day! The day, which is backed by Dragon’s Den star and retail entrepreneur Theo Paphitis, encourages shoppers to buy from their local shop keepers. The Day is being marked all over the country and Shrewsbury is no exception.
It has been a busy few weeks here at It's a nomad life, with lots of new stock finding it's way onto the shop floor. This week we celebrated six months of our antiques shop in Shrewsbury being open. We are so grateful to all our customers for their support so far!
We like to keep our customers informed of what's going on in our shop and we are passionate about the items we sell! Alongside the blog on our website Vicky writes a regular blog for Love Shrewsbury - here's one all about Pitcairn Island! Enjoy!.......
The last few weeks seem to have flown by and we are delighted that we are now OPEN! It's been a week now and we are over the moon that so many lovely customers have come to see us and said so many nice things about our shop.
It's been a busy couple of weeks or so since our last blog entry! We have been working our socks off to get the shop looking ship shape so that we can open very soon.
As you can see the shop signage is now in place...and the interior is looking pretty good too (even if we do say ourselves!). It is amazing what a lick of paint - and the removal of 1970's false ceiling can do!
