A lovely part of our job is to visit our amazing stockists around the country. Last week I went to the gorgeous village of Tynemouth to see Fine & Sandy who have recently started stocking a range of our Forget Me Not clutch/cross-body bags including our new Dalmatian and our ever popular Ocelot (Leopard) print.
Perched on the coastline, a hop and a skip from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Tynemouth is a lively community of cafes, restaurants and a wonderful variety of independent shops. There is even a church which has been converted into a shopping arcade. I can thoroughly recommend a stroll along the high street breathing in the salty sea air, listening to the whirling sea-gulls and a visit to the Tynemouth Priory and Castle which clings to the cliffs looking out to sea.
Fine & Sandy is a fabulous emporium which stocks gifts for every price range. They support and stock the work of many local artists and artisans and have wonderful colourful displays. Helen and Barry are a dynamic husband and wife team who will only have things in the shop that they like. There is a sense that they like good quality, original and colourful products which are not overpriced. I couldn't resist purchasing a little gift for a friend!
Definitely worth a visit!
