wilton way

In November of last year a shop on Wilton Way came up for rent. It was an almost untouched 1950s shoe shop full of original features. The shop had been a family business for more than 60 years and still had cobbler’s shoe irons in the basement and amazing old adverts on the walls.

With less than 3 days to get the shop ready for opening, I needed to enlist the help of friends!  Shop layout, floorplans, painting the Retrouvé logo on the shop window, wallpapering were just a few of the tasks needed to get us up and running. Luckily we found a spare roll of the original vintage wallpaper to help us achieve the final look.

It has definitely retained the old-fashioned feel & atmosphere, which is absolutely perfect for my vintage business.
