June 02, 5 min read The North East. Our time in Corbridge. Both of us love Corbridge. It has a wonderful array of vibrant independent businesses and we would never have dreamt a few years ago that we would be ing these fabulous independents. Back in that year was supposed to be about establishing the website and then the property that would become our lovely little shop in the heart of Whitley Bay town centre became available. And then inCorbridge. The shop was, up until the spring of this year, the beloved sweet shop Scrumptious. One Saturday in late winter Lucy was taking a flight of fancy online along the Tyne Valley to peruse shop premises.
And there she saw it! Scrumptious was up for rent. Lucy knew just how perfect a premises is was for us and in such a lovely spot.
She immediately pinged the details to Paul who almost fell off his chair. After settling himself back down Paul smiled and knew like Lucy this was the most wonderful opportunity. We met with Frances who owned Scrumptious and it was wonderfully reassuring how happy she was that we were taking on the shop and bringing the business to Corbridge.
Like the work we stock in the shop we work with artists and creatives we love and that applies to the look and identity of our shops. We were absolutely blessed and bowled over to have Julie Chambers Interior Des to de the fit out of our new shop. Julie is in such demand and a real class act with the most amazing portfolio of interiors to her name.
We very much wanted it to be us but also very in-keeping with the history and heritage of Corbridge. The shop has a great history to it dating back to the 19th Century. It has been a hat shop, butchers, bank and of course a fine purveyor of sweet treats in its life time. These are a legacy from where the butchers counter once stood and where the customers would have queued for their meat.
We take our hats off Julie and Paul not our Paul!! Julie had sourced an amazing vintage glass shop counter complete with draws. For Paul it fulfilled a life times ambition to stand behind the counter and pretend he was working on the floor at Grace Brothers department store. We even had an extra special helper with our nephew Jack who came along to assist the final touches.
On late May bank holiday Monday we declared FTLOTN Corbridge open and can honestly say that we were bowled over by the warm welcome we have been given from residents of Corbridge and the wonderful businesses in the village. We could not have asked for a more lovely welcome. Just like the Whitley Bay shop Corbridge offers a gallery wall space and we were so happy that Cramlington based artist Ali Elly agreed to be our first North East artist exhibiting.
Ali had ly exhibited in the Whitley Bay shop and like there she filled the new gallery wall space with an outstanding array of original work. With us being a bit more in land she has introduced bees to the mix and happy to say the work has been as lapped up in Corbridge as it was in Whitley Bay. There were still touches to be done however. Hilary who is our amazing display expert made a trip out to a Corbridge to work her magic. There was also the minor detail that we had no shop and there was only person we had in place to put that right, the fabulously talented songwriter Ash Willerton.
It was a no brainer we would ask him to do the Corbridge. Like the fitting out it was lovely to see people so interested in what Ash was doing. It was such a lovely evening on Midsummers Eve and fabulous to be part of the event. Paul has almost ed up to the Morris Dancers. Corbridge has a fabulous year round programme of events and a lovely community feel. It will forever be part of our journey and have such a special part in our hearts. September 05, 2 min read.
