“Could your wardrobe do with a boost in these tough economic times?
Leaf Tea Shop & Bar is hosting Retro Sundays, a vintage fashion fair on Sunday selling off unwanted clothes at a fraction of their price. Its a great way to get a bargain while making sure that usable clothes don't go into landfill.
Owner Natalie Haywood explains: "Retro Sundays gives you the opportunity to leave the mundane high street behind and step into the world of retro threads. If you've never bought vintage before, now is the time to discover some unique pieces. This mini-vintage fair is the perfect chance to bag yourself something stylish, recycled and sustainable".
The fair runs from 11am-5pm and they'll have home made scones, cakes and snacks along with more than 22 different tea infusions from all over the world. There's never been a better excuse for a nice cup of tea and a sit down.”
“Although normally a cafe, bar and club venue, Leaf on Parliament Street is launching a chill-out retro shopping event' this weekend.
Taking the idea of retail therapy as the remedy for a hangover, stalls will sell men and women’s clothes, jewellery and accessories. Titled Retro Sundays, you can expect a fairly vintage feel to what’s on offer.
You'll also be able to relax with some tea, breakfast and the newspapers while mulling over your purchases.”
“Forget lace doilies and chintzy wallpaper, this hip tea shop and cafe doubles as a club, cinema, art gallery and live music venue. Owned by 26 year-old local entrepreneur Natalie Haywood, it's located inside a refurbished warehouse and looks like a cross between a New York-style loft and a smart furniture store. About 25 speciality teas are on offer, including Yellow Gold Oolong, Organic Silver Needle, and Flowering Red Amaranth, and you can also take part in tea-tasting masterclasses. The daily-changing food menu includes soups, salads, sandwiches an hot savouries like lamb scouse with pickled cabbage. And as you might expect you can also stop by for breakfast of afternoon tea.”
