This is epside two about the gorgeous shops we’ve recently come across on we’ve our doorstep – Lulu’s Boutique in Lymington.
To be honest we did know about Lulu’s before having visited their pretty erstwhile shop in Salisbury and used their web-site but this little treasure house is a step up in gorgeousness from that and has the advantage of being in a place where you can combine a fantastic cuppa or a walk by the sea with a touch of retail therapy. Any men stuck for last minute present ideas for the lovely lady in their life should really pop down this weekend!
Check out this beautiful front window – who doesn’t need a pink Christmas tree in their life? I bought some of the traditional paper decorations – they take me straight back to my childhood!
The shop stocks all of the best in girly kitch including my favourite Tatty Devine jewellery
and all things Cath Kidston and Pip Studio and also fabbo items from Danish homewhere brand Rice who I love especially for kids and for camping. My flamingo obsession would be happily appeased by these party forks.
There’s loads of unusual ideas for kids as well like this cool colouring book
The homeware is fantastic too – If I had the cash knocking about I’d be replacing the boring spotlights in my hall with these pretty lights
We especially like the style of the Stanwell House Hotel in the centre of town which we really nearly hired for our wedding.
But you are not far here from the Pig Hotel
which is top of my current wish list for a visit or at least a home grown dinner!
Even if you don’t need any last minute Christmas pressies, this is a perfect bracing New Year treat.
One last thing, as my 4 year old is saying this year “Merry Christmas to All!”
Keep the Vintage Love xx
