A Rummage and an iPhone : Eclectic Interior Charm

DON’T FORGET: My giveaway ends in 5 days so make sure you enter soon!

Now, where were we…. Ah yes..

There are some shops that scream and shout and rave at you to come in, flashing their beauty at you with tonnes of advertising.  And then, and then there’s those little independent, charming, quietly going about their own business, tucked away little gems, that offer you something REALLY unique (and usually steal your afternoon whilst you rummage and delve your way through their treasures).  And that’s exactly how yesterday afternoon was spent, looking for everything and nothing.  One of my favourite in Plymouth is The Rummage Rooms at Interior Motives, which by the way, should also offer classes in shop staff etiquette, as the owner (without force) always offers you the friendliest of smiles and warmth whilst you shop and browse.  An art that’s completely lost on most sales staff theses days.

How I walked away with just one item I’m not sure (some beautiful woven silk from their beautiful selection of unique fabrics) but I did, but I’m still lusting after some beautiful decanters for my non existent whiskey and brandy selection.  There’s no quicker, more satisfying and interesting way to turn your house into a home than by detailing it within some preloved finds, all coming with their on untold story.
