I am a retired English teacher who has retired from teaching but not from life, which I intend to live to the full. With all my hobbies, I'm busier now than ever with my art groups, small business and gardening.

Wear, Recycle, Renew And So It Goes Around
Bibs And Bobs And Bric-Brac
I just love to fossick through bric-a-brac, knick-knacks and bits and pieces both old and new. ThatPlace, a gift shop in Medina, satisfies all my wants and needs.
A Place To Relax and Take Stock
Unassuming from the front, ThatPlace opens up like a magical world and eclectic is not the word for it. It's hard to know where to look first. The decor of the shop is early 20th century with the walls covered in excerpts from old newspapers. There are several comfy lounges that encourage customers to rest, have a coffee and catch up with the local gossip.
Vinyls That Go Round
Vintage to now vinyl records, old books and preloved garments are just some of the delights. Sam, the owner, ensures that all items are first class. ThatPlace also supports local artisans and the shop includes handmade jewellery, works of art, hand-dyed silk scarfs and more. She also has a philosophy about recycling; NO plastic bags here.
