Shopping In Stony Stratford

6 Jun

I live not far from Stony Stratford. It is a historic little town on the old road to London and as such it has many old coaching inns and bundles of character.

It has had dealings with the Romans, one of the Princes in the tower was arrested here and it used to have an Eleanor cross. It also had its very own “Great Fire”.

I pop there at least two or three times a week to mooch around the local shops and rummage through the charity shops. There is a Willen Hospice book shop which sells secondhand books where I often pick up my next read for pennies.

This week there were a couple of new things that I discovered and thought I would share.

First up is the new Stani Gallery http://art-gallery-milton-keynes.co.uk/ selling fine art. It also has a sweet little tea shop at the back, but what really caught my eye were these fab and funky re-upholstered chairs.

The other new developement which was very exciting was the opening of a new vintage shop upstairs in the Age Concern shop.

It is stuffed full with treasures including a couple of vintage Singer sewing machines, clothing nic nacks and furniture.

I have my eye on a particularly nice 1960’s sideboard.

So if you happen to be in the area pop in and see what treasure you could uncover #shoplocal. Also nip into Eddie & Pearl https://www.facebook.com/EddieandPearl for quirky, vintage and homemade pieces.
