Tenderfoot - A fab gift shop in Bristol

A few days back I told you about a lovely gift shop in Bristol called Tenderfoot.  At the time I hadn't visited the shop myself but yesterday made time to do just that.

I caught the bus into town and then got onto a number 1 bus which took me almost to the door, so nice and easy to get to and on a bus route!!!

I spotted the shop before I reached it as it is painted a lovely Aqua colour which makes it stand out nicely!

Inside I met Lori and Helen who own the shop and have been running it together since last year.  Both ladies are lovely and welcoming and I had a nice chitchat with them both!

The shop is like an Aladdin's Cave of both kitsch 'bought in' goodies and locally handrcrafted treats that make the ideal gift..  It's easy to lose yourself there for quite some time!!

I took along a few of my crafty makes and they are now displayed in the shop - can you spot my sock kitty in the pic below??

There's just so much to look at!!!

I love this vintage dolly design - I picked up some cupcake cases and wrapping paper whilst I was there in the same design!!!

I love these coloured jamjars with little wire handles - they would be great for summer garden get togethers with a little tealight in them!!

They also stock fabulous fabric bunting, paper bunting and paper chains in lovely designs.

As well as a wide range of gifts, Lori and Helen hold workshops and crafty get togethers.  They also host mini gallery events for new artists.

For further details you can take a look at their website or their Facebook Page .

If you live in the Bristol area, or are here on your hols or even just passing through, I'd recommend a visit to Tenderfoot.  I guarantee that you won't leave there empty handed though!!!!
