STORE SNAPS - totnes

I have recently been on holiday in Devon and popped into the lovely town of Totnes which has a really cute high street full of independent shops. Here are some of the snap shots I took in stores such as Gazebo,  Penelope Tom and Paperworks. If you are ever in Devon then Totnes is a great place to visit and I can see why designers such as Jane Foster and Alice Apple chose to make it their home.

These Ken Eardley ceramics (below) were snapped in The Baxter Gallery in nearby Dartmouth.

DESIGN LABEL - seasalt

Something else I discovered in Totnes was the Cornish label Seasalt. The business was founded in Cornwall 1981 but it wasn't until 2003 that they began to design their own exclusive prints. Their patterns feature lots of boats, Cornish flowers, and Seaside themes and are created in-house by designers Sophie Chadwick and Laura Watson. The colourful designs are put to good use not only on clothing but also on stationery, cards and bags. Seasalt have shops all across the South West of England and are stocked in most John Lewis stores as well as being available online here.

 And these are the beautiful bags I snapped in the window of the Seasalt store in Totnes, Devon.
