Wellington’s empty shops are quickly filling up. Pepperpot, selling vintage china and kitchenware, are moving early next week into Shaun Richards former premises next door to Costa.
“It’s a bit daunting packing all this china but exciting as well,” said partner Chris Hancock, who runs Pepperpot with her sister Karin.
They have been based up the iron staircase behind Stags for two years and feel ready to expand into a more ambitious location. “We started selling on eBay, then took stalls at fairs and so forth,” said Chris.
“Then we were at The Old Salerooms for a time before moving here. It’s been great for expanding the business but somewhere with a shop window and easier to find is going to be better still, we hope. Fingers crossed.
