Favourite shops in Bath

I love taking a trip to Bath. We usually spend a couple of days in the city during the Autumn and again in the Spring. I was disappointed to find that the Moon and Sixpence has gone, but my favourite shops all seem busy and thriving.
I’ve chosen my favourite shop window and my favourite independent shop … along with a mention for just a few others …
The Fine Cheese Co, in the artisan quarter of Walcot Street looked SO inviting – all those wonderful loaves, lined up just waiting to be wrapped and taken home. This was taken just before Easter and I loved the touches of brilliant yellow and lilac. They run a super cafe too and say that you can ‘graze as you browse’!
Now I’ve always loved this shop. Joanna Davies opened Grasse, in Argyle Street close to Pultney Bridge, in 2009 and every time I pop in, there’s something different to see. There are so many individual pieces to add style for home and garden. I always find something interesting in Grasse – Joanna allowed me take some photos of the inside too …
There are always scented candles burning so the shopping experience is altogether delightful.
Thank you Joanna!
There are a few other shops that I should mention too …
The Makery Emporium is in Northumberland Place and sells all sorts of crafty supplies. There’s a workshop too where classes are held regularly, right at the top of Walcot Street.
Here’s the flower shop just over Pultney Bridge, in Argyle Street. Just bursting with blooms!
And finally Shannon, modern Scandinavian style right here in Bath – wonderful furniture, lighting, textiles, home accessories and gifts. Wonderful fabrics too!
Now I just want to go again! Not sure I can wait until the Autumn.
