An old style fabric, haberdashery and knitting yarns store where you can root around to your heart’s content and find real treasures to transform into clothes is a rarity nowadays. That unique offering is what owner Carol Clement is determined to maintain in Axminster. Her shop is a one-off in the modern world, stacked high with materials that you would rarely find in such a small shop, and with real gift bargains such as sewing boxes
The business that Carol now runs has served Axminster well for some 37 years. She originally joined the business id days when it was located behind the current Recycling Shop and took it over when the owner retired 30+ years ago. She moved it to its current West Street premises 23 years ago.
In the post COVID-19 world, Carol is working hard to make the necessary space to allow her to serve her cstomers while ensuring safe distancing.
