I grew up in the South of England in a village called Hamble-Le-Rice. It’s only a small place really, but it is very pretty and there are a notably disproportionate number of fine drinking establishments (hurrah!).
Being by the sea, a lot of the people who live there have links to boats and yachting. All be it lovely and very quaint, if you are not of the deck shoe and oilskin persuasion, this is no style mecca…
UNTIL that is, the arrival of Covet & Collect – undoubtably the best thing to happen to Hambolian retail since probably ever! This lovely new shop that opened last October, specialises in interiors, antiques, gifts & fresh flowers. It is a little bit like walking into a real life Pinterest board of marvellous things – JOY!
The shop is run by Carly and Janet who have very kindly agreed to show some of my Entomology artwork. I am chuffed to bits as it looks so great in there and it is so different to see it in this context instead of up on a stark gallery wall. We are hoping to stock some of my Entomology cards in there soon too – yay!
Be sure to pop into the shop to have a look if you are in the area as it is well worth a visit. They can be found at 3, The Square, Hamble-Le-Rice SO31 4LS
Carly can also be found on her brilliant blog here.
