If my Postcards from Babington have tickled your pickle and you’re quietly plotting your escape to Somerset, I have another little gem for you to check out.
It’s an easy stop off on the way, or the way back.
I’m pretty sure I’ve told you about Kilver Court before, but they’ve just stepped it up a notch with the brands they host… so I couldn’t resist another trip.
In Somerset casual, naturally.
If your memory needs a nudge, Kilver is a high-end discount emporium.
A rabbit warren of shops and stalls in a beautiful old factory, with world famous secret gardens and a couple of restaurants.
They serve up the best of local produce, and are particularly proud of all things Spelt based, which is grown on the owner’s farm.
It’s a cracking spot to forage out a little pre-shopping sustenance!
Although you might be tempted to pocket all of the crockery!
Queenie gave me that knowing look ^, and I resisted.
After stocking up on fuel, we headed right to the new French Sole shop.
If you’re not familiar with the brand, they’re a British co. who specialise in beautiful flats.
They can be expensive, because they’re made to last… so this place is a bargain hunter’s treasure trove!
Welcome to shoe heaven.
Rather than being piled up in a jumble, ‘sample sale’ style, everything is displayed as it would be in their London stores.
Neatly and beautifully.
Some of the discounts are quite frankly un-real!
We ran wild!
Upstairs you’ll find Mulberry, LK Bennet, Toast, Joseph, Jack Wills, Pringle, Bottletop, and enough cashmere to wrap an army!
We picked up a few pairs for ourselves, and a few as gifts… Mother’s day is fast approaching after all!
Wrapped up warm and headed out into the glittering afternoon.
Bargain hunting hunger thoroughly satisfied…
…ready for a spot of lunch at one of the restaurants!
C’mon, shopping counts as cardio, right?
