Beautiful shop- Alastair Hendy Homestore- Hastings

Thursday, 21 February 2013

 A couple of weekends ago we visited Hastings, unfortunately it was too cold and wet to go to the sea side, but we did manage to visit this beautiful shop. I'd heard about it and wanted to visit for a while, and it didn't dissapoint.

 As we walked in from the cold, there was the smokey smell of burning coal, and it was like we'd just gone back in time.

 The whole shop was styled so well, full of hardware goods in neat lines and piles.

 As you wind your way through, past the glass jars, feather dusters and wooden brushes you get to a large stove at the back.This turns into a small 8 seater restaurant, where you literally sit in the kitchen.

 big block of bread and jam just in case you need a nibble.

 even the lovely staff's uniform looks like it is from the 1930's .
 I left with a metal sieve and a few bars of pure milt white soap- I loved it !

  1. It looks like you had a nice day going back in time. Eating in the kitchen sounds nice too.

  2. How gorgeous vintage and cozy. Looks like a wonderful place to visit. Did you get to eat there too? That bread looks so yummy. Reminds me of the homemade bread my mom baked when I was growing up.

    1. no we didn't , but I'd love to next time. looks like it would be good basic food with no frills!
      someone told me that you can visit his house too!

  3. The bread board is fantastic. Off to chop down a tree now! Seriously, what a great place the glass jars are beautiful too. X

  4. Nice post, lots of people appreciate it! Some people are looking for more beauty product which is safe and effective.
