Felt Robins Now At Andrea Willis Designs

 I live in the lovely seaside town of Scarborough, it's a beautiful little town and has lots of lovely little shops tucked away down side streets. One of my favourite places is Hanover Road, just behind the theatre and that is where the very talented and very hard working Andrea Willis has her shop.

Andrea is one of the busiest people I know! She works very hard and her little shop is like an Aladdin's cave of lovely craftiness. Handmade cards, drawings, notebooks, lovely ribbons and buttons, every surface is covered with loveliness! Plus she now stocks my Robins! 

 I found Andrea's gorgeous shop the same day I discovered my favourite cafe, Eatme Cafe. At that time she was in a teeny tiny shop just opposite it, she's now moved to a bigger shop a little further down the road and the tiny shop has turned in to the Eatme Artspace, a teeny gallery which Andrea also helps run along with the Eatme boys and where on the 7th November for 2 weeks you'll be able to find me and some buddies having a little exhibition called Birds of a Feather... It's very exciting but we'll leave that for another blog post!

 So if you are ever in Scarborough, make sure you pop around the back of Stephen Joseph theatre, just opposite the station and visit Andrea's shop... make sure to say that Mel sent you!!!

Now that looks like a lovely little shop.

And lovely to have your birds there too.

Wow what a lovely shop- great place to stock your robins:) I look forward to hearing about your exhibition

Andrea said...

This looks like my kind of shop...and connected with a lovely place to eat? Heaven. Best of luck with your felted friends...although, I'm sure they will take care of themselves.

Oh wow, what a great shop! I'd love to be in Scarborough some time soon... a bit of a long walk / drive from here though!
Glad you have found a local shop to sell your gorgeous robins - perhaps she'll take some other birds in the Springtime - maybe blue tits and kingfishers?
Good luck with your Birds of a Feather exhibition at the gallery - great news!

Think your robins are cute and very seasonal! Never been to Scarborough, but know lots of folks who have and agree that it's a "nice little town". Good to live and work there. Hope you have a good exhibition and plenty of sales!

I'm going to Scarborough in a couple of weeks with Mrs Jason; it's a shopping trip. If it wasn't before, it certainly is now!
