Blog Ashford was a great all day event. It was to celebrate the fabulous independent shops in Ashford. It was a chance to see the shops and meet the people behind them.
First stop was Stag Coffee. The perfect place for a meet and great. There hot chocolate and salted caramel are to die for. It's a place when you'd escape the cold with a book or just to sit and enjoy a drink and some food.
Next up was Snap Jewellery. It's not your average Jewellery shop. This jewellery has a great concept behind it. It's all in the snap. You pick your piece of jewellery and then one of the many charms. There's a wide range which snap on and off to suit your mood and outfit. It's not just jewellery either, you can get notebooks, cards and even wedding invites and other pieces.
Happy & Glorious is a cute shop which has a range of homely pieces. From arts and crafts, candles, beauty, home and jewellery bits.
Tucked away is this cute tea shop called The Little Teapot. It's a quaint little place to go. It's has pastel coloured polka dot tablecloths and pretty decor.
Emporia Fabric and Craft is the place to go for fabric and all things craft. Which is all in the name.
Lastly Made in Ashford. It's owned by a mix of local people. They create their own things which they then sell in the shop.
Overall it was a great day. Whilst I couldn't stay for the whole time I had a lovely time and I'll be going back. If you haven't been get down to Ashford and see this little piece of magic.
