Wacky windows in Nottingham

Headine news!

Headline news!

Many of you will know that I took a flying visit to Nottingham at the weekend.  But not so swift that I couldn’t have a healthy salad (and a naughty cake) in Hopkinson with my lovely daughter. A Vintage store that spans four floors (yes, 4!), you can sit in the cafe on the ground floor surrounded by the most delightful clutter.  No need to worry about calories!  The 4 floors will soon work them off.

The external is quite arresting too!

Nottingham has shops by the gazillion, but I’ve always loved arcades and Flying Horse Walk is surely an eye pleaser. Let’s go a little more upmarket, shall we?

And inside the arcades

More flying horses!

I’d like to say thank you for the kind thoughts and good wishes I received at the weekend.  A few prayers won’t go amiss but I’m hopeful that things will get better.  Love is all you need, but sometimes we need a little help too.

And, of course, I’m linking to Dawn’s A Lingering Look at Windows.  Let’s go window shopping!


  1. What an interesting shopping area — inside and out! That salad looks quite healthful. I hope you had a decadent dessert to balance it out. 🙂

    Send you my best wishes, Jo!

  2. Dear Jo I do hope you are coming through your difficult times and I, like so many others in your community, send my best wishes and thoughts out to you. Thank you for sharing this delightful place, it was a pleasure wandering around with you.

    1. Thanks a lot, Pauline. It’s a long term problem, which worsens from time to time. Hopefully things are a little better in Nottingham but still very difficult. Thanks for your kind thoughts. 🙂

    1. Ohhh! I wanted you to see it with the Header but I just changed it to go with 6WS. I wish I could assign a Header to each post 😦 I’m such a child sometimes! 🙂

  3. Sorry to read that there are some problems these days Jo – my thoughts are with you. Do love your wonderful photographs of Nottingham.

  4. Wow, a vintage shop with 4 floors sounds amazing! I love those painted ceilings in the shopping arcade. The magazine dresses in the shop window are eye-catching too.

  5. Jo I feel so badly as I don’t think I picked up on your distress in the Monday walk. I am sending my love and hugs across the miles. I hope things are looking a little brighter. Xo

      1. Thanks, darlin, for the offer, but no. In the blogging world, I’ve received many kind responses, but some things must remain private. It’s not my story to tell.

  6. I love the murals, the ceiling art, and the flying horses Hope the sun is smiling on you now Z

    You might have guessed that I was able to view this – and ‘comment’ – last last night but then the comment would not send. Here’s one more try~ and then two and three…. and four…. etc

    Sigh ;there are problems in paradise!

      1. Packed, well sort of, at least the wine is by the door and a list of houses to view arranged. I am determined to succeed this time!! Hope it is a bit warmer down there!

      2. A bit of determination and a lot of luck, or the other way on… I hope you succeed. I wish it was a bit warmer up here 🙂 Enjoy!

  7. Thank you for sharing the pleasent time you spent with your daughter. Hope it will go well for yuo, Jo. Pray for you… hugs ❤

  8. Oh yes! My kind of shopping indeed. I love “delightful clutter” and can spend hours in arcades of this sort. I’m sure you had a wonderful time with your daughter as well…time very well spent, Jo!
