It was time for a change! Websites with lots of thumbnail photographs of stock are generally only interesting on the first visit, from then on you just tend to look at the new arrivals. The new website also reflects the change in the shop from traditional antique shop to a space reflecting my likes and interests, old and new. So I also want the new website to have more of a sense of the new life of the shop. I only realised that this might be possible when Joanna Moore’s exhibition in the gallery last year featured in Spitalfields Life prompting the visit to the show of many of its readers – all with a genuine interest and affection for everything connected to the blog. Not being a social media user I had never encountered that sense of community on the web and I suddenly understood that websites can have a life and a personality that people enjoy getting to know, in exactly the same way as visitors to small shops like getting to know the owner. So I am going to talk about some of the things I have in the shop and why I like them, people I come across and interesting things I find. We’ll just have to see as we go along…..
