Every girl needs a step ladder.....or 3!!!!


There is one very lovely shop in Shepton Mallet called Nostalgia at No 1, owned by the lovely Niki.

It's the sort of shop that you need to keep visiting, as it changes all the time. I often peak through the windows early morning (before it's opened) whilst on my Post Office run. I'll show you what I bought from there, for my Mum for Mother's Day in my next post.




Well, I spied these step ladders in recent weeks which were just calling out to me to buy - how could I resist - particularly the one with a spotty top!




So now I am the grand owner of 3 sets of step ladders - an odd thing to collect I hear you say, but they are fabulous for trade shows to display your wares.


Firstly, they fit in the car easily and secondly they give a little height and interest to your display.



Hard to believe that in just 3 and a half months time, I will be loading them in the car ready for Harrogate - time is just whizzing by far too quickly at the moment. I'm already starting to feel a little behind with all I want to do!

Wow, never thought of needing a step ladder, but now I'm imagining a wonderful shed style studio with a fabulous step ladder for reaching books on top shelves! Must invest! :)

I saw a plain set at a car boot sale the other week but OH wouldn't let me buy them. I really wish I had now!

Oooh I love this shop. I want it!! I like the ladders too...What are you going to do with your collection of ladders then Becky?? I seem to recall you had a little set of steps at one of the Trade shows as display, but how many DO you need!!!?? Is it cos they are so sweet that people think they are for grabs??

Thanks so much for the mention on your lovely blog...And for your purchases too, of course, after visiting me in my little shoppe! I am honoured to think that the step ladders will be used at such a prestigious fair! Good luck with it.

Have a great day,
