Resale Shop-hopping…

We love our little shop for its Aladdin’s cave of designer goodies, but we also appreciate a good resale shop-hopping adventure! When we visit new places we will always take time to hunt down pre-owned designer clothes shops and to save you some time, we’ve chosen a few of our favourites… Thrifting, consignment or secondhand shopping offers an affordable alternative to the mainstream high street. It enables us to discover new brands and to own pieces that we ordinarily.....

How To Shop at Grace & Ted

Grace & Ted is a treasure trove of designer goodies. Brimming with clothing, shoes and accessories; it can be difficult to know where to start your search. That’s why we thought we’d arm you with some tips so that you can shop efficiently and effectively – hopefully helping you in your quest for your next designer discovery. Grace & Ted isn’t your typical retail store, items aren’t arranged by size and rails are packed with an array of styles, f.....

Love To Shop Secondhand

Resale, consignment shopping, thrifting – whatever you call it, we love shopping for discounted designer pieces that mean we can have our dream wardrobe and save money! These savings can be put towards holidays, helping to fund important grown up stuff (like pensions, rent) or even just a trip to the cinema (because at £7.50 a go (before snacks) who doesn’t need movie money?) As well as all those things; being ‘green’, respecting the environment and rediscovering.....

Shop Savvy This Christmas!

Enjoy the thrill of the hunt this Christmas and shop savvy for your gifts! Why pay full price for designer pieces when you can shop with Grace & Ted and find items in new and excellent condition at a fraction of their original prices? Whether it’s that Tiffany pendant your girlfriend wanted 2 years ago or the Christian Louboutin shoes your best friend has been lusting over since you’ve known her – you can find gifts as unique as the people you’re buying them.....

Love Your Locals

I rant about independent businesses A LOT. I’ve even been on the telly talking about the dire state Bath’s high street may find itself in if things don’t change. I champion independent businesses because I truly believe they are the back bone and lifeblood of the city. Yes, we have magnificent tourist sites and those thermal waters which are pretty special; but once you’ve seen that and you want to really get to know a city – you head to the little shops. .....

Phoebe Hooke

Bath’s newest kid on the block is Phoebe Hooke – freelance writer, pilates instructor in training and girlfriend of Bath rugby’s Sam Burgess. Straight from the land of Oz, (Australia, not where the Wizard lives) she was the go-to-girl for all things fashion and celebrity in two of the country’s biggest glossy magazine. Since arriving in Bath, Phoebe is making quite a splash in Bath already, having been appointed as a columnist for Bath Life magazine and immersing her.....

Not-quite-a-garden-party Party

As part of Bath in Fashion’s Night Out evening shopping event we decided to hold a not-so-secret garden party at the shop. I’m not sure whether expecting the British weather to cater for an outdoor event in March is either optimistic or naive… It didn’t rain but it did blow a gale so my event became a Not-quite-a-garden-party Party. We did manage to create a small but perfectly formed arrangement of heathers, tulips and hydrangeas outside which looked ver.....
