Happy Birthday To Us (And a Party)

Previous Homewares (Corsham) celebrated its first birthday this weekend with a PARTY to thank our wonderful loyal customers for their magnificent support over the past year. We made very good use of the Prosecco we brought back from France a couple of weeks ago, as well as the vintage Babycham glasses we’ve been stock-piling. There were also lots of Previous mini-cupcakes, resplendent with our logo on top.

The Prize Draw was for a vintage hamper filled with over £150 worth of Previous goodies (herringbone blanket, scarf, organic bath products, socks, matching Bloomingville mug and tea-towel, hand-made choccy and of course, a cheeky bottle of Prosecco). We’re delighted to announce that the lucky winner was Penny Wahid.

Back to earth this week, as the weather turns cooler, we are offering cashmere jumpers, cardies and ponchos, cosy slippers, scarves, socks, gloves and hats.  Halloween goodies are our speciality too – ghoulish chocolate fingers, eyeballs and fangs. And wall-climbing spiders, naturally! All, as usual, at really good prices.



We are delighted to announce that our First Birthday celebration Party will be on 15th October at Previous Homewares in Corsham High St, from 3-5 (and probably beyond!). There will be lots of fizz, good things to eat and a fab free Prize Draw.

So if you’re free and you’d like to pop in to celebrate with us, send us an email (nicola@previoushomewares.co.uk) and we’ll send you an invite.

By way of preparation, we went booze cruisin’ last weekend and came back with a car full of Prosecco, not to mention some fabulous French antiques that we picked up en route, including bedside cabinets, facet cut crystal glasses, oil paintings, a sunburst mirror and lots more.

We stayed overnight at a great boutique b&b called ‘Maison 76’ at  Montreuil Sur Mer, which we can highly recommend, but don’t expect ‘La Mer’ because it’s been inland for hundreds of years. Montreuil is a charming ancient walled town with an extraordinary number of good restaurants. We chose the rather chi-chi industrial chic ‘Anecdote’ and can report that 70s (revisited) French cuisine is alive and well and can be very dramatic – especially the crepes suzettes!
