My hometown of Cleethorpes, North East Lincolnshire, has a hidden gem of a shop which appeals to the creative and entertainer side in me. It is a lifestyle concept shop called ‘Arttopia’. It is a stones throw from the beach, up from the station approach on Grant Street. You can not miss the bright coloured shop and the glowing bulbs of the shop sign.
The shop has various artists and makers inside and this means there is a wide range of things to look at and suitable for all tastes and budgets.
On entry I was immediately drawn to the fabulous display by Emma Shortland of ‘Peacock Pretties’ I have several items from Peacock Pretties and have mentioned them in my blog before https://overtherhinestonerainbow.blog/2019/08/22/drag-world-uk-shantay-you-stay-dragworlduk-drag-olympia-london/ and https://overtherhinestonerainbow.blog/2018/09/28/steampunk-lincoln-asylum-steampunk-lincoln-asylum-purplepoisonivy-irregularchoice-daysout/
I wanted Halloween flowers to make a Halloween display in my living room. I have a small black cauldron, a tiny witches hat and small glitter pumpkins that I purchased from Asda in previous years. I also have purchased some red battery timer lights from ‘Lights4fun‘
The Halloween flowers I chose are not traditional Halloween but very autumnal. I tried it in my hair, as is intended, and absolutely love it. It will make a fabulous decoration, corsage and hair accessory. Prices vary, depending on size and requirements.
Keeping on the Halloween theme I could not resist this fabulous candle holder from ‘Silver Yarn Handmade’
It is amazing isn’t it! I love the 1993 cult Disney film ‘Hocus Pocus’ and one of the main reasons is how much I love Bette Midler! This fabulous candle holder depicts Bette’s character ‘Winifred Sanderson’, one third of the Sanderson sisters. I love the depiction of her, there is no denying this is Bette Midler and I adore how, when the tea light candle is lit, the wall is filled with Bette but it looks as fabulous as a stand alone decoration.
I also purchased a small gift from ‘The Clumsy Pickle Design’ Fabulous illustrations and comic art, well worth a look at the many various wonderful items available. Especially of interest if you are from Lincolnshire as there are a lot of landmark prints from the area.
All three items cost less than £25.00! Absolute bargain for such individual items.
As you can see this is a wonderful little shop filled with many treasures and delights. You can find beauty, home wares, children’s items, bath products, food and gifts and so much more! It really is a place of imagination considered perfect and ideal!
