Welcome to my first blog of 2014!
I wanted to start the year off with a wonderful shoot I did just before Christmas at one of my favourite shops. I have seen people’s eyes light up at the mention of RE in Corbridge, because it is a truly remarkable place to visit. For those who haven’t been there before, you can pretty much guarantee that they will be raving about it when they have discovered its delights. I know few shops that stock such a unique and eclectic collection of gifts and products for the home, and where you can literally spend hours browsing the imaginatively-designed aisles.
From soft furnishings to rustic metal letters; baskets of string to colourful candle cakes; retro stationery and posters to gorgeous chandeliers; natural soaps to funky tea-light holders; kitchen and tableware, old maps, beautiful ribbons, wooden postcards, skull-painted mugs, colander lights, ahhh, I feel like I’m breaking out into The Sound of Music’s favourite things song again!
Who would have guessed such treasures would be hidden down a small passageway next to the petrol station in Corbridge?
Photographing all of these wonderful objets was a very indulgent and fun opportunity for me, so thank you to Jenny and Simon for letting me spend three hours in your shop, purring from behind my camera!
