I followed a beautifully dressed woman yesterday, straight into a forgotten treasure of a shop - Secondhand Rose, its tucked away in Cavendish Close, a hidden portal into a glamorous world.
|Gorgeous display in the window by the door|
|As you enter- which way to turn first!|
The last time I shopped there was very hurriedly a few days before my wedding on New Years eve, 22 yrs ago- I was looking for the perfect top go with my Jenni Button blue and white polka dot wrap skirt - (I know you're wondering, but its a long story!)
|Chanel - if I remember correctly?|
It's a place to spend hours browsing and chatting to the friendly owner, Liz, custodian of these treasures for way over 30 years now.
|I can't help but wonder what dancing diva wore those shoes and to what fabulous parties|
|All the clothes in beautiful condition lovingly displayed by the owner|
I found my treasure- a little black Hilton Wiener jacket with faux fur collar, a perfect fit. I'll definitely be back to look at those bags hanging behind the till, specifically the red ostrich one .....and don't even get me started on the jewelry cabinet......
|See that red one? Ostrich leg leather- very rare|
