Today we stumbled across absolute heaven on a lazy morning wander – Decoporium in Wetherby, West Yorkshire.
We had zero expectations, given that it’s a tiny little shop front in the middle of an old (slightly eerie) munitions site. Maybe some candles, jam jar glasses… but we were gobsmacked by this huge haven.
The front of the shop is slightly typical, with vases, (great) local artwork on display.. but it soon opens out into a huge space split into booths, featuring salvaged and handmade furniture, books, accessories and clothing. They currently sell work from over 70 dealers, who drop in new pieces whenever they’ve sold a few, so there’s always a chance of finding something different.
They also have a small garden area with all sorts, including some serious QUIRK such as full Benfield Ford showroom signage for around £100. There’s a fair amount of sifting to be done, but you’ll find some real treasures.
Despite wanting to hire a van and buy most of the pieces on show there and then, we left with just an old drawing of our village. The £1.50 big spenders! But there was a beautiful round navy side table that will fit perfectly with our work-in-progress blue bedroom, so we may be back soon..
