The Curtain Emporium
Muddy says: Looking for designer drapes at a fraction of the original price? Come to this beautiful village outside Shipston-on-Stour for nearly-new quality curtains.
How’s it hanging? If the answer is ‘Not so good’ I know a shop that can fix that. The Curtain Emporium in the pretty hamlet of Shipston-on-Stour has the biggest collection of posh new or newly new curtains in the UK – over 500 pairs, for 50- 70% less of the original price from brands like Colefax & Fowler, Sanderson, Nina Campbell, Harlequin, Bakers, Clarke and Clarke, Jane Churchill, Villa Nova, Romo and William Morris. Most of the curtains are interlined and handmade; some come with pelmets and tiebacks and should fit most windows.
If you’re moving house and want to sell your own curtains you can do that too – they’ll stay in the shop for 6 months and when they sell you’ll get a cheque for 50% of the sale price minus the VAT.
There, I bet you’re feeling better already.
