A Very Modern Tea Room

Last weekend, as previously posted, a few girls and I took a delightful stroll around Clifton Village in pursuit of cake. I loved all the stops along the way, but the final stop at Cordial and Grace blew me away.

I really like tea, I really like cake, and I really like crafting. So its amazing to find somewhere in Bristol that not only does these things, but does them well. As so many of us mentioned, the cakes we tried were amazing -  I could only manage a few of the huge platter that was put together for us, but I would make the trek to Clifton for the peanut butter brownie alone – like a cakey Marathon (er, Snickers…showing my age there)

There’s a good range of teas and coffee available, or if you’re feeling a bit decadent/have something to celebrate/just like fizzy wine, there’s prosecco available too.
Downstairs, there are sewing machines and different fabrics, ribbons, etc for sale. Besides having the sewing machines available to hire by the hour, there’s also various workshops for all skill levels and ages.

I could tell you more about my favourite new find, but its so much easier to show you some photos…

Definitely one to visit if you’re in the Clifton area!

Cox and Baloney Vintage Boutique

Last week I took a little wander up Gloucester Road, for a bit of charity shop scouting when I came across Cox and Baloney Vintage Boutique on Cheltenham Road. The name rang a bell, as I’ve picked up so many of their postcards at other shops, thinking I must visit, but had never had the chance before now! The shop has recently expanded a few weeks ago to incorporate a tea room, which (I have to be honest) drew me in on a cold afternoon! The shop seems to go on forever, with different rooms housing different types of items – a room filled with books leads you into a vintage clothes shop for the ladies or the tea room with lots of lovely homeware and crockery, while downstairs are menswear and a seamstress.

Instead of telling you more, here are some photos to tempt you to go along – its definitely worth a visit if you love the look of my pics!
