Mrs B’s Emporium

23 Apr

Mrs B’s Emporium is a little treasure trove of kitsch trinkets and vintage style gifts.

Mrs B 5

I needed to pick up a couple of birthday cards and some gift wrap, so it was a perfect opportunity to walk round the corner and check out the latest little shop to open in Wolverton.

It is full to the brim with great little gift ideas for the young and the not so young. There are toys and games to keep small people entertained and wonderfully kitsch cards and gift wrap. There are some great stocking filler ideas too!

Mrs B 6

There is trim and rick rac and bunting and hanging hearts enough here to keep vintage lovers and crafters happy too.

Mrs B 4

There are note books and pretty paper clips for the stationary lover and ideas for the bakers of cupcakes.

Mrs B 2

I picked up some really retro gift wrap for my two pressies,  a couple of fun cards and a note-book for me. All of which came to £7.50, which I thought was pretty good value.

If you happen to be passing by, a visit to Mrs B’s is definitely worth while. It is full of great ideas and it won’t break the bank 🙂

Lula Bops Tea Room

21 Nov

My town is not a looker.

She’s not massively into her appearance. But she has something about her. She’s got grit!

Wolverton is like the scrappy younger sister to the older, prettier Stony Stratford.

Built to house the railway workers 175 years ago, Wolverton in many ways has always been quite a utilitarian town. With rows upon rows of Victorian terrace houses, it can look quite grey.

The Costa in Tesco was the most exciting thing to happen in recent years.

But…..A new tearoom has appeared. It is in walking distance and it is not at then end of the tills in a busy Supermarket.

Lula Bops Tearoom could not fail to lift the spirits, even on the coldest and greyest of days.

Laura and her team are as bright and bubbly as the decor, which is kitsch and mis-matched and pastel coloured. And many of the items you see are for sale.

There is a tea trolley full of odd cups and saucers just waiting to be filled with the tea of your choice and there is a wide selection of cakes.

I chose to have a pot of Earl Grey tea and a slice of coffee and walnut cake which came to the grand total of £3.40.

They also do afternoon tea which includes a slice of cake, scones with clotted cream and finger sandwiches. There is a lunch menu too!

Children are welcome and there is a box of toys for them to tinker with while you sip on Assam and catch up with friends.

Laura has injected some much-needed prettiness and sunshine into this little old town. It’s fab.

It’s just a shame this wasn’t here a year ago. My Grandma would have loved it.
