Whilst in the UK last week I went to Frome which I assumed was quite a boring place. How wrong was I, stumbled across a great little street full of fab artisan shops.
Found a lovely fabric shop called Millie Moon,http://milliemoonshop.co.uk/
A great bead shop called beadz bazaar
coffee and cake shop (well you have to stop for a while whilst shopping!) The guy in here gave me all the history of the street and told me about all the designers.
Various local designers including a lady that does amazing magnetic boards for the kitchen
www.beyondthefridge.co.uk I wanted to buy one as some of them were half price in the shop but didn't think flybe would let me take it hand baggage!
and a lovely shop called Mary Kilvert, http://www.marykilvert.com/
ooh and a fantastic yarn shop too!
