Etcetera





Once a popular seaside resort in the 1960s and 70s, Margate in Kent,
soon will be famous for his wonderful vintage shops 
Etcetera is one of them!
Shelly the owner , has some great retro items from the 50s & 60s.
I was lucky to find a fiesta jug there which I wanted for a long time

This is the kind of shop I dream about owning in the future. I just hope there's a market for it in the Peak District!

It looks very nice! Can I ask how much the jug set you back? I'm just trying to get an idea of prices!

You and I seem to be on similar wavelengths. Thought about moving from London to Whitstable in 2001, ended up in France instead! I am an Artist/antique dealer and supply shops similar to this, but in London.
I love the south coast of England and visit as often as possible. In Hastings there is a great shop called 'odds and ends', run by a friend, in the old part of town; well worth a visit. Love your blog will be back soon Linda
