Two of my favourite UK shops are now within 20 feet of each other. The fabulous gift and book shop at The Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art has a new neighbour accross the foyer.
The Northumbrian homewares designer and retailer RE has joined them until Christmas. The REH@B store is a pop up offspring of The famouse RE store in Corbridge, Northmberland. RE's previous pop up was in Liberty of London, this one is a lot closer to home.....both theirs and mine.
Last weekend I popped to the pop up to share a glass of bubbly with owners Simon and Jenny and to buy a couple of things for my pantry which is due for a RE-do.Those French string bag have a multitude of uses and I could not resisit a polka dot pooch.
I made the observation that Rachel and I have mentioned RE so much REcently that DesignInspiration looks like it could be their blog rather than ours. However, they do such interesting things that we feel duty bound to report them. REh@B brings the REally unusual, the REcycled, the REmarkable the REscued and the REstored – found objects from around the world to Newcastle and Gateshead shoppers. Can't get to Corbridge or The Baltic Centre? Visit RE-Found Objects. and let them come to you.
Hands up who wants to go to Re-H@B?
