One of the main incentives for my excursion to Corbridge recently was to visit the amazing shop RE. Tucked away behind a petrol station and next to some very adorable antique shops (the outside of which are illustrated above), RE is both an incredibly creative store - and if you don't happen to live in the North of England, a very good website, which stocks most of their products. The entire RE experience is designed around the many words containing the letters RE - RElic, REcycle, menswaRE, hardwaRE, REdiscover, gREetings, lustRE, pREsentation, gREen fingers, shoRE, fiREside, al fREsco, REfreshments, weatheREd, REflect, by the metRE, REcipe, REalm, fREsh, RElax, mcabRE. The letters themselves for the store were found in a Paris flea-market and last year RE had the opportunity of opening up a satellite store in favourite London department store, Liberty. I don't think anyone could visit this shop without finding something appealing to take home with them.
