We went to the ‘shop-warming’ on Saturday afternoon.
She’s not moved far… about 200 yards in fact… but whether it’s 200 yards or 200 miles, moving a shop is a big job.
The new shop’s a bit closer to Hebden Bridge town centre – next door to Mooch café-bar on Market Street.
A few stone steps lead up to the enticing shop space – filled with her trademark handmade lighting…
…along with a fabulous selection of household goodies by other designer/makers.
To the rear of the shop is an improved workspace for Hannah, with a wood-burning stove for chilly days. She even has a loo and somewhere to make a cup of tea – something she had to cope without in the last shop!
For those of you unfamiliar with Hebden Bridge – and within reach – it’s well worth a visit. It’s one of our next-door neighbours town-wise, about 4 miles from Todmorden. It’s a pretty place, full of small independent shops and cafés – perfect for a day trip.
We recently decided to upgrade our space in Picture House Antiques from a cabinet to a room-sized pitch. It will enable us to sell a much wider variety of items. It’s our usual mix of mid-century modern, handmade objects and rustic antiques.
There’s enamelware, ceramics, glass and fabrics… we’ve had some fantastic vintage posters framed for the walls… there are clocks, lighting and larger pieces of furniture.
It’s been quite a busy week – there are slideshows below charting the move.

(boxes to unpack, shelves to put up & pictures to hang)
(More tweaking will surely be done, but we’re happy with the result so far)
