    It’s not everyday you can walk into a shop and come out with a vintage jelly mould reinvented as a pendant lamp, a Mexican bingo set, moose shaped firelighters and a deckchair. But if you’re lucky enough to live near the market town, Corbridge in Northumberland, you can! (For those that don’t, you can of course buy online, phew!), Simon Young and Jenny Vaughan’s converted workshop (round the back of an old filling station) is a treasure trove of totally unique finds for the home. They named their shop RE after two giant metal red letters they bought in a Parisian flea market…

    People, step inside and feast your eyes on these wonderful buys..

    I would very much like these jolly, jelly mould pendant lamps. How lovely to hang a row of these above a kitchen table…

    and this ‘waste not want not’ fabric is sold off the roll, for £16 a metre. It’s 44cm wide perfect for a table runner. GREAT idea..

    Thank goodness it’s March! Spring had sprung and I’ve just bought 4 bunches of daffodils for £1 in my lunch break – hurrah! They’re currently bunged in a vase and just about surviving in our air conditioned office but what I’d really like to display them in is this…

    A test tube for each single stem. Ah Joy! Thank you RE. Delightful finds and next time I’m even vaguely heading oop north I’m going to take a detour and pop by. - Alice

      It’s about 40 mins from my in-laws. I adore going and could happily move in to the shop! Actually, it’s lucky for my purse we don’t live any closer.

      This store is great, thanks for helping me find it! So many great homeware things, it seems like it would be rummaging around in an ‘Old Curiosity Shop’, except one where you know the stuff is great…!

      I want to visit RE right now! I love the pastel mixing bowls – perfect for inspired baking! And the cushions are brilliant – I think even my farmer hubby would approve of those!!
