Now, as you may have guessed, there’s nothing that I like more than a shop selling things that I don’t really need, which is probably why I like Follies on Bridewell Alley in Norwich.
It’s a teeny shop with ancient woodwork and low ceilings in the shadows of a medieval church. And if that’s not enough to whet your appetite, it also sells some beautiful and fun things.
I am particularly taken with the set of three swallow wall fixings (available in various colours) – I think they will add some much-needed kitsch to my living room! At £9.95 they’re rather reasonably priced for something a bit silly too.
There are also very cheap candle holders and beautiful glass votives, teapots and china, greetings cards and earrings. It’s a great place to visit if you’re struggling to get your OH something for Valentine’s Day.
Although they don’t have a website, Follies does have a Facebook page. You can check it out here.
