Hendy's Home Store, Hastings


Peter Thwaites, co-founder of fabric and wallpaper company Rapture & Wright, has discovered a vintage homewares gem in the heart of Hastings...

'Hendy's home store in Hastings is a wonderfully restored Alice in Wonderland of a shop with just the right amount of patina remaining. Half homestore, half furniture antique shop with a bit of restaurant thrown in occasionally, it's a brilliant example of how a bit of theatre can make the purchase of even the most mundane object memorable. Never has buying a scrubbing brush been so exciting. An interesting addition to the re-cooling of Hastings Old Town as a destination.'
