Baileys Home Store, Ross on Wye

Not so much a boutique, more of a style warehouse! We love Bailleys Home Store!

This is how hey describe themselves:
The things we sell are a surprising mix of vintage and new from a variety of sources - but they all share the qualities integral to our repair, reuse, rethink philosophy.

One of our favourite things is to reuse unloved bits and pieces (small or large) that we find on our travels, and give them a new lease of life - it's our version of recycling... so abandoned bobbins from old textile mills turn up on our shelves as egg timers, lamp bases or string holders; scraps of floor board become mirror frames, tables or even kitchen units.

When we're not rescuing and recycling, we design simple useful products with a subtle sense of humour and nice labels. We also source some things from small family run companies who have been making the same things for generations - such as beautiful Burleigh pottery - still made in Stoke-on-Trent.

Our biggest project so far has been the move to Whitecross Farm - it's taken about 2 years to sympathetically restore and repair the run down buildings and turn them into our store, which is definitely worth a visit.

Beautique - Viva Violetta, Rye, East Sussex

Beauty editor Karena Callen (ex-Red, ex-Elle) has opened the kind of beautique that frankly you'd be happy to stumble upon in any corner of our fair isles. In fact, it's in Rye (East Sussex), a convenient hop-skip-and-a-jump from Jo's home town of Hastings - but definitely worth a pilgrimage from much, much further afield.

What will you find? Beautiful Miller Harris fragrances, the cutest discoveries from Sussex-based Juliette at Home (loving the teacup candles and the gorgeously gift-wrapped soaps), This Works skincare and bath oils (we swear by Deep Calm), Adrianne's vintage-inspired jewellery, Max Benjamin candles, Cartolina cards (our favourite), and lingerie from Tallulah Love, which comes in powder-style boxes.

Viva Violetta stoks vintage items too, aswell as Paul & Joe, Narciso Rodriguez fragrances, and - fingers crossed - the amazing perfumes of Serge Lutens, which will definitely be a fragrant Sussex first. If you're lucky, you'll find Karena there, too: as lovely, clever and drily funny a beauty editor as you could hope to meet. And if you're very lucky, she might answer your beauty conundrums.

Brits' love of fashion rides out recession!

The recession has not dampened British women's love of fashion as new research shows nearly half of female shoppers have spent the same or more on their clothes in the last year.

A report published by Mintel this week reveals that despite gloomy reports that consumers are tightening their purse strings, over half of UK consumers (54%) did not reduce the amount they spent on updating their wardrobes. More than four in ten consumers (43%) did not change their clothes shopping habits and a dedicated one in ten (11%) followers of fashion said they actually spent more on clothes than they usually would over the past year.

Overall, nearly half of women in the UK (12.7 million) spent the same or more on their clothes despite the economic difficulties.

So the "Lipstick Effect" really is true! Great news for all those indy fashion boutiques out there!
