Norfolk Yarn and Vintage Shopping

We’ve just had a lovely weekend visiting family in Norwich. It’s such a beautiful city with a young trendy vibe and plenty of historic architecture to enjoy.


The Lanes have some bustling little shops and tea rooms and we happily slipped into St Gregory’s Church which has been transformed into a vibrant Vintage Market.


How I managed to leave there empty handed is a mystery.


Would you believe there is also a new(ish) yarn shop nearby!


There was a fun knitting class chatting away in the back of Norfolk Yarn

and look at these Amigurumi beauties I found!


Such yummy modern colours, these were my calorie free treats today!

    looks like you had a lovely time – I would have loved a good rummage in the antiques market, and certainly wouldn’t have come out empty handed lol

      It’s very unlike me! I did have a good look through the linens but I already have a lot and I love old furniture. I recently bought a 1950’s kitchen table, they had a few there. Space is getting a little tight!

      They had a few colour combinations Meredithe, I’m still wondering if I should have bought more. Got to come up with a project for them now 🙂

    Can you tell me how to recognise a young trendy vibe?

      The students were all hanging out chatting in the sunshine. There was a busker with a beautiful voice, playing guitar just outside the entrance of the church. The independent shops in The Lanes are mostly retro vintage………go Malcolm, you’ll recognize it when you feel it x

    Tell Malcolm his wife is always giving out a young, trendy vibe at Oast!! Planning a summer of university visits this year – Loughborough (Quorn Quilting), Swansea (Red House Quilts), Exeter (that place by the station I cannot remember the name of and most important of all (from mum’s point of view if not the prospective student) BATH!! I think the latter deserves a whole weekend not just a one night stay.
