Well here is part of yesterdays adventure! did you ever see such a quaint little shop! Just to explain the book shop is in the lovely coastal town of Aberystwth, Wales. My fiancee pictured is a book enthusiast and I think hes found his heaven here. I however was fasinated by the building itself, these pictures were taken upstairs and the house is just like a maze, had I been prepared to be silly! A game of hide and seek was not out of the question in this extraordinary shop. I kept expecting to turn a corner and see Bagpuss snoring in a corner but alas not to be...So with the sound of seagulls and the smell of sea air drifting in through the tiny windows, I found myself reading a wonderful book by the talented actress Sheila Hancock about her career and her lovely husband John Thaw...and well as usual as im engrossed in something, I hear my fiancee in his lancashire tone...Are you ready love??? well such is life, so hope one day very soon to return to the delightful bookshop in Aberystwth to perhaps read a few pages more...God bless .......Mary-rose

Hey there!! First post so here goes!

Well this is me embarking on a new adventure with my vintage shop and yes I do look happy because I am, my life has completely changed within a very short period of time, Ive moved to the beautiful land of Wales, even more importantly ive found the love of my life and im engaged!!!!And now ive  decided its time to to embark on some of the things I always wanted to do but never quite found the time for when bringing up a family! Ive always had a facination with Antiques and collectables, more recently Vintage clothing and accessories, especially hats, although funnily enough they do not suit me at all, but I appreciate them all the same, so I hope to add a variety of hats and of course vintage clothing to my shop, indeed its early days but with a littlle bit of luck and a whole load of determination I will aim to run a successful buisness and bring a little happiness to the collectors of this world....love to you all........Mary-rose xx
