Livingstone Memories week has started! We are up and running with our exhibition in place showing some of the rich history of 40 years of continous trading from our listed premises in Bridport, Dorset. The firm has a background as a mail order supplier – long before online shopping. Samples were mailed out every month to an extensive mailing list and hundreds of orders shipped every week. When some of the old shelving units were dismantled last year we found parcels of fabric which had slipped through the cracks, and many old signs were still to be found around the building. We also have some items which have been made from fabrics sourced from Livingstone Textiles, including a collection of decorated bras from the West Country Embroiderers which were made to raise money for Cancer Research.
We hope you will call in and sign our visitors book before the exhibition ends on Saturday 22nd October. If you have an item to contribute which we can put on show, it’s not too late. Just drop it in to the shop, and don’t forget there are many other activities taking place during Livingstone Memories Week.
