Yesterday was such as beautiful day that we decided to spend a few hours blowing the cobwebs away in Lytham lancashire.
Lytham is a lovely coastal town with a sweeping green on the seafront and a small town of pretty Georgian and Victorian houses and independent shops, behind.
If you’re looking for good local produce, you will find it all here with local butchers, green grocers and an amazing fish monger, Lanigans, all on the High Street, so great to see these shops still thriving.
One of the nicest shops we found was Heima which sells a range of vintage, upcycled and new home products and are one of only two Annie Sloan Paint suppliers in Lancashire. They also have a large workshop at the back of the main shop, where they run regular classes, demonstrating how to give your own piece of furniture a facelift.
There’s not much in the way of Antiques and bric a brac shops, although we did find a small shop Acorn Antiques, which was unfortunately closed yesterday. There is however, further up the coast, in St Annes, an auctioneers Gerrards, which holds regular auctions, worth looking out for I’m sure.
We also found this poster in a local shop, advertising an upcoming vintage market in the Assembly Rooms in March, also probably worth the 50 minute car journey from Manchester and if you don’t find anything there, you would have had a lovely day by the sea.
