The Home Store at Hastings

Hastings is a bit like Brighton was 25 years ago. Windy lanes up from the seafront, quirky shops, and unusual period property. I love to visit the area known as the Old Town in the summer - its a wonderful place to spend an afternoon browsing the individual shops and exploring the pretty streets.

One new shop I am really looking forward to visiting this summer is The Home Store - a Georgian renovation labour of love by Alistair Hendy (who took these photos). The shop is laid out like a home, the era lovely recreated. The renovation took three years - well worth the wait as these pictures show. Inspirational!

Have a good week xxx


  1. Wow, what a lovely place that looks like! I love the metal tub!

  2. i love looking round places like that!

  3. What a fabulous looking shop! You just know that you couldn't leave there without a bag full of something useful as well as beautiful!

  4. It looks like an amazing store, Louise, would love to shop there too :-)
    Nice day,

  5. Have a nice week end to you. Franc

  6. I have only visited Hastings once, and it didn't look like this. So, lucky Hastings: this is my kind of shop.
    I have enjoyed visiting: you have a lovely blog.


    1. Thank you Anna. The shop is in the old part of Hastings which has become very fashionable in recent years. The 'newer' parts of the town are far less attractive!
