More of us!

Hello one and all. Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet of late, no excuses at all just enjoying the sunshine on my roof! Right to business then what has been going on inside my walls? A few changes, moves, new arrivals have been happening or are about to happen. Artistitch Design has joined us in the cubby holes downstairs and we’ll just wow! You should see the work that goes into her lovely handmade goods. Well worth a peep folks. Superb presents too if you’re looking for something unique.

Sugar Hill are going to be taking on a larger space in August so she will be moving from her shelf under Tangled Vine the candles to by the window upstairs. We are so excited to be getting some more beautifully restored furniture in.

The Outhouse in amongst the minor issue of getting married moved into a larger space just before the ceremony! Cheeky monkey then went on honeymoon and the girls sold his stock!

Grace Face Boutique has been having a sale with her beautiful handmade adult dresses, just a few left if you fancy owning one of the best made dresses around.

Vintage Daisy moved in downstairs with her lovely mix of vintage style and true vintage goodies. Proving very popular too and so beautifully displayed. She also has her own place – The Little Grey Shepherds Hut at The Yards in Kettering so do pop over for a shop.

Nicholas & Steele restock most weeks in their fabulous back room but beware they seem to bring a tonne of rain with them lol! The girls tell me it’s well worth following them on Instagram and Facebook as they sometimes have table top sales of all their gorgeousness.

image

Mercer & Rose are now in place in our cubbyholes and again it’s all just sooooo beautiful. Pop in and take a gander.

Mr Pip Goes Solo is taking over the gents clothing upstairs in August and promises us tweed jackets including Burberry and Harris Tweed, hats from flat caps to top hats, braces, ties, cravats and more. Watch this space.

image

We have a few more new businesses in the pipeline too so keep an eye on the girls Facebook and Instagram pages. Remember you can tweet them too (personally I thought that was just up to the pigeons on my roof but hey ho!?!!!)

image

Lastly I’ve realised not everyone knows that the emporium is actually made up of over 30 different, independent small businesses all trading under the same roof. So when you support us you are supporting a number of people in the local community. The girls have put links on the website to the different businesses so it’s well worth a click to find out who makes No.38 so special. Ta ra for now folks…….

Me Again Folks!

It’s me again, No.38 popping by to catch you all up on the latest happenings at the emporium. June has got off to an amazing start for the girls and their traders after a quieter May. The weather seems to affect you lovely lot and you don’t want to pop out to play in the rain! Can’t think why you wouldn’t brave the torrential storms we have had? I stand in it all the time with just my lovely tiled roof for cover!

image

One of the girls has just returned from a well earned family break in the sun so the fabulous Mrs Top Step Antiques stepped in for holiday cover and was working her little socks off. She will defo need a holiday too after her extra days at the emporium. She was buzzing round sorting all you lovely peeps out. It seems you have all been loving the girls window display so much you’ve practically bought it all which meant Mrs Top Step was climbing in and out of the window for you all hehe!

image

I have been noticing some new faces popping in and out of my doors recently it would seem the girls have been joined by several new traders with a few more still in the pipeline. Small Wonders has arrived in our cubby holes and is proving jolly popular too. Her pictures are amazing. All based on the Cornish seaside too, with shells, driftwood, hand stitching etc.

Mabels Vintage has taken on a larger area upstairs and again it’s looking wonderful with a mix of something for everyone from furniture to haberdashery, China to crates.

Grace Face Boutique has had a revamp and we have opened her space up a little more. Mr Pip helped out and bashed a bit of me away!

In all its been a pretty busy start to June. Coffee and cakes are enjoyed on a Friday especially by our adorable postman who pops in for a takeaway! Downstairs had a bit of doing up session and I’ve had a wash and brush up! Anyway enough from me I’m being got ready (terrible grammar sorry folks) to open my doors for a fabulous day ahead. I did hear that some of the lovely people who make my insides what they are today are popping in for a restock so watch the girls Facebook page to see all the new goodies. Toodle pip until next time….

Well what can I say about Allium? With the girls right from the start Allium is a weeny bit different in the fact that Alison who owns it is actually also a very talented florist. Check out her Facebook page for pictures of her fabulous flowers. You

Allium is based upstairs in my building in the second room right in the corner. You all know where I mean as you have all definitely bought a little bit! Gorgeous garden ornaments, lanterns, mirrors, pots and more. The Christmas decorations are proving super popular too. Some of these are downstairs by the counter sparkling away.

Allium has proved so popular that she has now expanded and has a space in My Little Vintage in Earls Barton too.
