Create your style. Linger a while to browse the mass of items from paint tins to buttons; trunks to jewellery; ephemera to arty bits and bobs; old treasures, new finds and places in between. Workshops & taster sessions too.
Abode is an independent business owned and managed by Daphne Roberts.
“I’m Daphne Roberts and here’s my tale. I had breast cancer in 2016; had an op, coped with the treatment and went back to work after just two weeks off. Then it hit me … the fact that we’re only here for so long and that ‘time allowance’ reduces daily. So here’s my dream …
Abode Above: no ordinary place! A not-very-large shop full of stuff that I love: wooden things, painted pieces, metal shiny objects, buttons, beads, clothes to create an individual style (new lagenlook styles and all styles of pre-loved), jewellery, handbags and trunks, mirrors and pics … the list goes on. There will be workshops, taster sessions, gift vouchers and a loyalty scheme. All of this is in the centre of town, with parking nearby, creating a new destination – albeit a small one (for now)
Abode Above is happy to be Official stockists of Frenchic® Furniture Paint. You can pop in at any time to sample the delights of this fabulous range of products – see how creamy it is without being too thick to handle; it goes on like a dream; there’s no smell; no added nasties; it’s certified safe for children’s toys and beds and it’s so easy to get hooked and want to paint anything that doesn’t move! I also run Frenchic® Furniture Paint workshops where you can try out and experiment with these brilliant products, learning new skills and techniques. No experience is needed, but it doesn’t matter if you have painted before. The workshops are informal, informative and capital ‘F’ Fun
Please come and visit … I’m open daily, except Sundays”
