Eras of Style

Last week I visited Eras of Style Antiques in Bexhill to take some photographs of their fabulous interior space. The shop was previously an old train station, which is commemorated with a special ‘ Waiting Room’ vintaged themed coffee lounge, serving teas, coffee and yummy homemade cakes. There is a ‘platform’ food hall, that sells locally sourced fine foods, I spotted some amazing looking cheesecakes! The rest of the old station is a labyrinth of walkways filled with quirky finds, connecting to more rooms filled with unusual antiques.

Each room has a different feel to it, from 1950’s american memorabilia to victorian oddities.

The only problem with this place is that you end up walking in and spending ages here because there is so much to look at !

Out and about

I really need to get out and about more , I seem to be glued to my computer screen, my eyes are starting to take on a square look . Staying indoors is fine in winter months , when its too cold, wet, dark and generally miserable but at the moment there might still be the chance of a little glimpse of sunlight … so i am taking full advantage of it ! I decided to take a look at Bewl water last night , the sun was out ! and a nice little sunset appeared… it was even kinda warm 🙂 . Spending the evening out in the countryside away from my computer made me realise I have to do it more and next time im going to take some mates and insist we make a camp fire and cook marsh mellows over it, its what we do  🙂 … heres to getting out more 😉
