A TREASURE trove of one-off items, vintage furniture and quirky gifts has opened up in Backwell.
Lisa Reilly, aged 38, gave up her job as a police officer to set up Tilly’s Vintage Treasures in Station Road.
The ethos of Lisa’s shop is ‘reclaimed, reworked and reloved’ and customers can find up-cycled furniture, original Victorian furniture, vintage linens and tea sets as well as games, books and accessories for the home.
Lisa also stocks work from a number of local artists including original watercolours, prints, lino prints, button art and textiles.
She said: “I think the shop is a little bit of London’s Portobello Road in Backwell.
