How about a vintage Christmas giving old things a new lease of life?
We are fortunate in Dorset to have some wonderful places to search for vintage treasures and this shop and cafe is another great place to visit. It is called "Reloved", don't you think this is such a good name for a shop selling items from a by-gone age?
As you can see it is jammed packed with so many beautiful items that bring back childhood memories.
Even the Christmas decorations are unique and homemade.
They also have a wonderful tea room, producing tasty homemade items.
I had a savoury cream tea- the jam being replaced with chutney and the cream being replaced with cheese , served with cheese scones. My daughter (who is now home from Uni for Christmas) had a delicious homemade mushroom quiche.
It was all served on mis-matched china which just adds to the charm. There have been a few blogging posts comparing local unique cafes with the national chains of coffee shops. Which type do you seek out?
If you ever visiting Dorset there is the chance of visiting "Reloved" twice as they have shops in both Wareham, where we visited, or in Dorchester(see below.)
We will have some presents under our Christmas tree that have had a previous life and will be reloved.
