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.
