South Street’s retail landscape is changing rapidly. Tamsyn Amber’s shop Artfully Made closed this week after a number of years selling her hand-made jewellery and artisan clothing.
Amber’s notice on the door says she will continue to run courses ranging from Tunisian crochet (next week) to wet felting and details can be found on her website www.artfullymade.co.uk
Across the road shop fitters have been working hard for the past few weeks at the shop that was previously Ben Simmonds photography studio. No detail as yet on its new identity but the elegant racking and shelving indicates a fairly smart retail operation is due to arrive.
And opposite again, the café that was once the Chocolate Box, became the Hard Times café and is now a storing grandfather clocks remains empty. A few doors up Webbers estate agency is undergoing a major renovation.
