Crafty Way to get you to Visit an old Church
It had been many years since I have been to Samford and I was amazed at how much it has grown, with so many interesting shops, cafes and places to explore. I will return soon.
After a delightful lunch at The Flying Nun on Station Street, I ventured next door into the Urban Dweller to be impressed by the wonderful collection of art, antiques, many delightful locally designed hand-crafted items including jewellery and fashion and lots more.
If you are looking for that special, unique or memorable Christmas, birthday or other gift, you will find a wide range of ideas to choose from in this quirky little shop.
It is described on their Facebook page as having an "eclectic mix of antiques, locally designed handcrafts, homewares, jewellery and fashion."
Amanda Smith was very welcoming and enthusiastically told me a little about some of the products, especially the art works at the back of the shop which were part of a local art competition.
It was an old church and standing as part of the counter is a lovely wooden pulpit.
It seems every corner has something of interest. There really is a variety of items to choose from. Next time I go I will be shopping for ME. There's some wonderful locally-made jewellery that took my eye.
Samford really has grown up - and is not the little country settlement that I recall from years ago!
Opposite Urban Dweller is the historical village too, so there are plenty of things to help make a wonderful day of a visit to Samford.
