Anyone that knows me is well aware of my addiction to Emma Bridgewater. So, seeing as we were (almost) passing recently, it would have been rude not to pay a visit to the factory.
When we got there it was absolutely rammed because it was half term. A great start to our child free night away – a place full of kids! We decided to attempt to find somewhere to sit and have a treat in the cafe and, after a bit of searching, we managed to find a seat tucked away at the back near the loos!
I decided on a latte and brownie and Big chose a (very strong) coffee and scone. Everything comes out in gorgeous, mismatched Emma Bridgewater pottery. Big’s scone (is it s-gone or s-cone?!) was really tasty but annoyingly my brownie was so dry! Like, sand in the mouth, spitting out crumbs dry! I love brownies but all can be forgiven when surrounded by all the pretties!
After our cafe stop we had a walk through to the shop. I was like a kid in a sweet shop! So much beauty that I could add to my collection. I could have spent a fortune, if we had money to spend, but managed to restrain myself. I say I did, Big helped reign me in a little! There are two shops at the factory. The gift shop and factory store. I chose some bits for myself from Big and Little for Christmas, and also managed to find a special set to buy Little too.
Having spent up we decided (Big decided) that it was time to leave before I saw anything else! This was the latest of a few visits and I love it at the factory, although Big doesn’t enjoy it as much as I do!
What is your obsession? Does your other half appreciate it as much as you do?
