One of the things I love to do here on the blog is to feature local independent shops. I believe they make our towns what they are by creating a truly unique experience.
Any of you perusing Living Etc in the coming weeks, will see Alpine Lifestyle Boutique which has just opened right on our door-step in Ilkley.
The name’s a giveaway; though it’s a long way from the slopes, everything through the doors transports you a la piste via exquisite LUXURY homewares.
Sheepskins, hides, antlers, handmade candles and all things Alpine bring LUXE cabin life home.
Naturally, it’s going to get warmer (who wants furs in Summer you may ask) but Alpine Lifestyle Boutique will move with the seasons. As the colder months give way to Spring and Summer, expect to see outdoor living, a nod to THE Yorkshire trending sport that is cycling, and lighter linens and glassware.
… And do keep an eye out for the shop if you’re planning a trip to Ilkley… it’s situated in Crescent Court, right next to Attic Womenswear (read my post about them here). Should you get peckish, you must pop round the corner to Toast House (featured here).
Finally, don’t forget a Fat Rascal from Betty’s to take home! Got to love a thriving little town.
