I met with the Rhubarb Room girls Lauren and Sone last week and i was a little early so had a little time to soak up the world they have created within four walls. There were so many goodies that i was dying to buy for all the birthdays coming up (and maybe a cheeky birthday present for myself too – i am a firm believer in the drawn out, days-long birthday festival and with my bday on the last day of February, i generally start early).
This is their own range of bath and body products – love the packaging and their clothes are of the easy wearing, effortlessly elegant (and very forgiving of the post holiday flab) ilk – cottons, neutral colours and wardrobe classics aplenty. And if you’re expecting, they have a great maternity selection too.
I spotted some Christmas decorations on sale (50% off so get there now and know your tree will be gorgeous come Christmas time 2011) and if you’re a stationery you-know-what well…they have gorgeous stamp and gift card sets marked down too.
Rhubarb Room’s café is really popular as a venue for girlie get togethers – i’m not really surprised given the pretty surrounds…and just look at the ribbons display, love, love, love it…one day when i’m big i’m going to have a ribbon shelf just like this one.
