Shop fuddling in Bath


I seem to be spending more and more time pottering around Bath. With Andrew at the University, it's a great excuse for me to come and spend sometime in this beautiful city, have a good look around and a dose of culture (and lets face it - I need all the culture I can get!)

Last week I had sometime off work and spent it learning my way around Bath and seeking out all the little side streets with interesting independent shops and boutiques....

One street  - St Margaret's Buildings - located up at the top end of Bath near the Circus, was recommended to me and one specific shop - The Foodie Bugle -


Wow, what a shop. It's just perfect, full of food and flowers, it has a little cafe at the back and artisan breads, a deli counter, hand made choc's and best of all, whoever puts out all the merchandise has a wonderful eye for design - I loved it and spent ages look at all the beautiful displays and produce - of course I took some pictures......



The display outside was beautiful - all veg, fruit and flowers....





 You could buy all the flower arrangements ......


Not sure I could have carried this one home though!  I love pheasant eye narcissus...



and the bread stand in the hallway was perfect. Although most of the bread and pastry had already been sold - it was only 10:30 am so obviously it's good and you have to get there early....

Well, I spent ages here, as you probably guessed! I bought a few things for my lunch and then pottered back home - thinking "if I had a shop that is exactly what I would want".....

Later, after I mentioned my visit there, I discovered it had another floor with loads of linen, utility room stuff, glassware and vintage......good excuse to go back - not that I needed one.....

have a great day
