...Moday Evening mooch...

So I'm up to my neck in admin after the release on Friday and I had no Monday morning make for how about a Monday evening mooch around one of my favourite places to shop and browse in Belfast - Sawyers. It's been around since the 1890's - you can see the original shopfront below - this I pinched from their site, which you can visit here. I hope they don't mind...don't think  they

It's an absolute gem of a place and I don't think there is anywhere else like it in the North here...full to the brim with all sorts of interesting goodies - I hadn't been in Sawyers in a little while and I called in last week for some cheese, I could spend hours browsing the goodies here, they even have some goodies from USA - Reese's peanot cups etc, that sort of thing. You could easily spend an hour or two in here just looking!

While I was there I was eyeing up the Easter goodies and I hope to have a little neat idea for you tomorrow - something simple and easy to make.  Gotta pop off and send out more shipping notes, chat to you tomorrow hopefully


  1. I LOVE Sawyers, Claire! Kieran is such a character! I could browse in there forever, and I defy anyone to walk in there without buying something tasty - just impossible! My dad came out with a little container of pickled baby squid! Yuk!

  2. I was checking all day for a challenge...
    figured you were extra busy right now :)...
    but love this just as much!
    What a fabulous store...
    I would love to have something like this versus the big impersonal box stores that litter the US...
    I remember stores like this from when I was a kid...
    and miss them so much.
    It speaks of days gone past...
    days I wish my kids could know.

  3. Love the old world feel of this store, how fun to shop there.

  4. How many things have you tried off their "Try the Exotic" list? That is an interesting list for sure!

  5. It looks lovely! I ADORE Reece's Peanut Butter Cups - way too much in fact. tesco sells the 3 packs 3 for £1.29! I get most put out when they don't have any on the shelves (they frequently sell out). It's one of only 2 American candies I love that we now get in the UK so I'm with you on the Reeces - all the way LOL!

  6. How charming. Thanks for sharing.

  7. oh this store is just darling. love it! thanks for sharing your neighborhood gems. what american treats are you spoiling you and your family silly with?

  8. You look for our peanut butter cups and I look for your Bird's Custard. I used to be able to get it in a few stores here, not anymore. I did find it on though. Then I happened upon your stamps. Dang I hate budgets!

  9. Looks like fun....could spend hours looking and spending!!!


Thanks for taking the time to comment, :) I read them all and I appreciate you taking time to visit!
