First timers to Tetbury (or Tetters as my friends in London fondly call it) are often surprised by the quality of shops, cafes and other businesses Taylor Black sits alongside. Many wouldn't look out of place in a key part of London.
One of the key to draws to visitors to the town is how independent it has managed to remain - making it a refreshingly different place to come and the reason why many come back again and again.
Some of our favourites?
Anna Lizzio - www.annalizzio.co.uk
Women's clothing store (and more) and once chosen by Vogue as one of Britain's Best Boutiques. Sells brands carefully sourced from all over the world.
Amy Perry - www.amyperryantiques.co.uk
An eclectic mix of decorative homeware & antiques. And the source of a couple of fab pieces in our shop (and home)!
Bay Gallery Home - www.baygalleryhome.com
World exclusive Aboriginal art & interior products. A really vibrant gallery.
Mayfair & Grace - www.mayfairandgrace.co.uk
Boutqiue full of the best beauty, fragrance and skincare brands from around the world.
Overider - www.overider.com
Own brand womenswear store that sells clothes with an understated, laidback style.
The Royal Oak - www.theroyaloaktetbury.co.uk
Quite literally the place we spend the most time (aside from our own home). A Grade 2 listed pub with oodles of atmosphere, great food, enclosed beer garden and some really wonderful events throughout the year that make Tetbury a really fun place to live.
As well as our own work we are also showcasing guest jewellery brands in-store. So far we've chosen to work with Lindsay Pearson and Zoe & Morgan. We are also selling a curated selection of Botanical themed products - vintage prints, Lale Guralp drawings, Marble & Milkweed and Mad et Len fragrance. Nice!
The last month has been frantic. We have foolishly decided to do all the work ourselves so we've been plastering, sanding, painting, varnishing, framing - what happened to jewellery!
The next few weeks we'll be getting our head back down on the jewellery bench prior to the grand opening in August.
