We’re pleased to announce that we’ve welcomed yet another exciting new shop to our Northamptonshire shopping village.

Vintage HeartVintage Heart, a vintage and retro furniture and accessories shop, opened their doors at Heart of the Shires on Saturday 5th November and have already proved a popular choice for our visitors. We’re really happy to be introducing a shop that has a variety of truly unique treasures for the home.

The store has a range of beautifully hand-painted vintage furniture and accessories ranging from larger items like cabinets and chairs to smaller special pieces such as photo frames and mantelpiece items. They are also a local supplier of GraceMary chalk paint and wax – the finest paints for home decor.

As experts in restoring vintage pieces with paint, Vintage Heart also give customers the chance to learn the ins and outs of the skill with painting courses. These are held on a monthly basis and are available as a mini course (£35) or a full day which includes lunch at Darlington’s Tea Room and an item of your choice to paint (£75).

The opening comes at a perfect time, with lots of items available that are ideal as a special Christmas gift. Or, why not give a truly unique experience and book a painting course for your loved one?

For more details about the painting courses, email vintageheart@gmx.co.uk or call 01327 340084.
