truly scrumptious

Friday, 14 December 2012


I headed to a local Christmas fayre in Maldon last night with my mum and dad where it was completely normal to see a cross-dressing man bursting into song ('Me Ol' Bamboo' from Chitti Chitti Bang Bang is still going 'round and 'round my head), Morris dancing, choir singers wandering the streets with artificial candles and, of course, plenty of food and drink.

It was also the perfect opportunity to explore shops you wouldn't necessarily notice on a regular rushed shopping day. We scurried into Truly Scrumptious to escape the freezing weather and it was an absolute treasure chest. It's a darling cafĂ© (as seen above) that is also home to decorative china and antiques upstairs.

I fell head-over-heels in love with the pale blue chest of drawers and the little table of a similar colour which featured a local map of Maldon and the surrounding area under the glass top. 

There was also a small room that featured Normal Jean vintage clothing. There were so many things I wished to take away with me including a gorgeous black midi dress, gold sparkly clutch and clothing trunks.

I'll definitely be returning pronto for a cup of tea, a slice of cake and, no doubt, a vintage find.
