The Turtle Doves Shop News... and how to visit us remotely!
You'll notice that the sign above our shop says 'Pop Up' but we are very excited to announce that we're staying! When we opened the shop last October we thought it might just be until the end of January 2019 but we have been offered the lease in the longer term and are rolling our sleeves up and concentrating on working out how we can make sure we're able to stay in such a lovely spot.
The shop is situated in a great location opposite M&S on Castle Street in Shrewsbury. The bus and train station are a short walk away and the park and ride stop is almost outside the door. We are open 9.30am-5pm Monday to Saturday and love it when people pop in for a browse. Our business wouldn't be here without the support of locals and visitors to Shrewsbury and the surrounding area because for the first seven years we were a market stall with a small but growing website on the side. It's great to be back on the high street and seeing old friends and new faces alike.
The stock in the shop is always different from what's online and this lead us to thinking that it might be a good idea to share our shop experience further afield. So, two weeks ago I did our first Facebook Live from the shop; it was very exciting to get such a lovely response. We have been showing people around the shop and giving them a chance to enjoy some of the different, limited edition and unusual pieces there. There's the chance to buy products, access offers and also feedback to us with ideas and suggestions.
If there's anything you'd like us to show you, talk about or share via the Facebook channel please drop us a message or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get on it.
If you're visiting the shop from further afield, like two lovely ladies who came from Cardiff especially the other day (!), please let us know as we want to to our best to make sure any products you're keen to see are in stock when you come.
Thanks for reading and we hope to see you there one day soon.
Warm wishes, Kate and the team xx
