Chapel Street, I Love You...

It's a bit gloomy out today, shall we whizz off to Chapel Street in Penzance for a spot of shopping?
It's one of my favourite places for pootling around for a bit of retail therapy.
But before we indulge, I have to show you The Egyptian House, look how beautiful it is!
First call is No 56, this is like an oasis of calm, full of the most beautifully displayed pieces for the home you have ever seen...
Sigh...
I have never been so excited about sweeping up brushes!
I so want one of these feather dusters!
Ooh! That's better!
Just one more shop and then a cup of tea?
Let's go to End Paper.
If, like me, you have a bit of a problem resisting beautiful stationery, this could become very expensive.
The shop is split down the middle, beautiful vintage and antique books on one side (where hubby dives in), and gorgeous stationery and paper goodies by independent makers on the other.
So much temptation!
I'd better put me purse away now...
Cup of tea and a slice of cake?

  2. Oh, what a lovely place to pootle! I would love to replace all my Wilko housewares with the lovely things here, but I'm sure I couldn't afford them. The pretty papers would be hard to resist though.
