The Tailor of Gloucester Museum and Shop

 On my recent visit to Gloucester to see my son I went to my favourite shop in Gloucester which just happens to be The Tailor of Gloucester Beatrix Potter Museum and Shop

I have been before and i loved was sadly closed for 18 months however thanks to fabulous gentlemen of the town who fought to keep it opened and also the support from the Beatrix Potter Society

This is one of the room  where the Tailor would work away by the fire :O)
Inside is full of Beatrix Potter delicousness!! I was still squealling even though i have been before lol
If you are ever in the area it is well worth a visit and is free

This was stunning!! apologies for the picture it is all behind glass and i have some reflections
When i saw this Tea~ Set i instantly thought of LEANN isn't it a beauty?

I always buy something to support the shop as it has only one paid worker and all the rest of the ladies are volunteers they are so nice! so here was my purchase this time :O)


It is bone china...can't have my cuppa in anything else lol 
and here is the back of the mug

Hope i haven't bored you

Thanks for stopping by....much appreciated!
