A Room of One's Own

It’s an exciting time here at Vagabond Romantics HQ. After nearly 8 months in beautiful rural Wales I am finally starting to feel like I’m putting down roots. And accordingly, I am leaving my adorable 19th Century weaver’s cottage for bigger and brighter pastures. Just down the road.

Moving house is always fraught but this transition had more than its fair share of drama. Having fallen in love with a countryside idyll complete with adjacent waterfall only to have it snatched away, I am now staying in the bustling market town of Machynlleth to a larger and slightly more modern (Georgian era) flat. I will grieve for my original slat floors, oak beams and cosy woodburner, but consolation comes in the form of a self contained office.

That’s right, very soon Vagabond Romantics will be opening its doors to the public as a gallery, workshop space and craft salon!!! And it’s possible that I literally could not be more excited about it. The office is comfy and wonderfully light with a view over Mach’s town centre and iconic stone clock tower. It’s the perfect space for everything from workshops to sales to open studio evenings and crafting with friends over a glass of wine of an evening, and my commute is down the stairs! There is even an antique shop on the ground floor who will be keeping an eye out for quirky bits and pieces I can use in my art.

Our online presence is likely to remain low key until I have a chance to unpack and settle in, but expect Vagabond Romantics to hit the internet like a tonne of exceedingly glamorous bricks in the near future. And if you happen to live local to Machynlleth, look out for our grand opening event coming soon!
