Here’s another one of our favourite places owned by John and Siouxsie, two more of our favourite people.
Hardly a week goes by without one of us dropping into Vintage2Versace to check out the latest stock in this treasure trove of beautiful things – June being the biggest culprit of course, it’s handbag heaven! Not to mention the hats, shoes, jewellery and the most extensive collection of vintage and couture clothing outside London…
And with coffee and cakes as tempting (well, almost!) as the goodies in the shop itself, The Secret Garden Café is a great place for a break from shopping or a quick catch-up with friends. What’s not to like?!
It’s also the venue for regular events and next month there’s a chance to celebrate Valentine’s Day in style in an evening which combines poetry and fashion.
From 7.30pm to 9.30pm on Friday 14 February there’ll be love poetry composed and read by Fiona Theokritoff and Deborah Tyler-Bennett as well as classic works read by John Knight, followed by a fashion parade of beautiful ballgowns and desirable dresses.
Wine and canapés will be served throughout the evening and tickets are on sale now, priced £15 each or £25 for two. Visit the shop at 6 Stodman Street, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01636 676999 for more details and bookings.
