There are changes afoot down
Tarrant Street in Arundel.
Firstly, we saw Mark at the greengrocers
move across the street,
where he has done up the
small shop in Tarrant Square
and is as happy as a pig in whatever.
Its looking great in there and he loves it.
decorated the shop Mark had
just exited and moved from theirs.
It must have been quite a move as
they have a lot of beautiful pieces.
Now.....are you following so far?
Moving in to their space is the
most fabulous hairdressers.
I spent a couple of hours there yesterday
having a barnet overhaul.
Stephen and Jack
have decorated the salon out beautifully.
I had a great haircut and felt a million dollars afterwards.
They are open all week except Sundays.
Tel 1903 884893
hope it all goes well for you.

Berties of Arundel.
Yesterday, was their very first day here in Arundel.
I was very sorry to see
Pauline and Brennie move out of their
but the new owners are all set to make
an impact on Tarrant Street
The little cafe has had a beautiful facelift and
Dean has a great friendly manner.
it all looks pretty tasty
Their phone number is
Good Luck Berties
Creative Writing group
I'm still loving the Wednesday evening sessions
of our creative writing group here in Arundel.
It's a friendly small group.
We always learn a lot thanks to Peter our very
knowledgeable and patient mentor.
How he puts up with us all I'll never know.
But tolerate us all he does, and between you
and me I think he quite enjoys the banter
and the many hours of slogging,
marking our weekly homework offerings.
Oh OK maybe not the latter LOL
Thanks Peter you are great.
Bamboo and Vintage paraphenalia
As usual I have a house full of vintage enamel, boxes and other items I'm busily painting and decorating.
The fish always go so well....I'm never sure why,
I'm working on a 19th century bamboo cabinet that you will see in
House and Garden magazine later in the year.
I'm watching the post for the obscure
paint colour they requested that I couldn't get locally
and had to send off for.
Its all a bit touch and go at the moment.
I might have to work the night shift.
Here's one of our gilt bamboo cabinets
that made there was into magazines last year,
via Liberty in London.
and one of our bamboo tables............
and one of our fishy chests of drawers
We will be at the next
Ardingly Antique Fair
on Tuesday 23rd April
at Shopping Arcade 68
Do come and say hello if you are there.
Also, we are open every
Saturday 10-4 pm at our warehouse.
Its just behind the Co-op.
We have new signs up, so you cant miss us.
Wrap up warm though...its jolly cold down there.
Have a great day
