Stag and Bow, Forest Hill

Reader Neil alerted us to the opening of a new shop, Stag and Bow in Forest Hill. The independent retailer says of itself:

Stag & Bow is an emporium like no other. We are a celebration of creativity, originality and history. Whether you are in search of an original piece of furniture, a handcrafted item of jewellery, a unique item of clothing or are looking to develop a skill in one of our creative workshops, we invite you to inspire or be inspired.

If you've been since its opening, please tell us what it's like.

A similarly art-inspired retailer has been threatening to open in Brockley for a while, although we've not heard anything from them recently. We will see if there's any update...

Sounds a bit like a Hunting shop.

Sounds more like "I saw you coming" from Harry and Paul.

Actually, I mentioned it here ;)

I popped in last weekend, it's run by a really nice couple and the place looks great. It's definitely more shop than 'craft salon' (TM) for now, but they plan to do workshops once they've found their feet.

I though it a very inspiring shop - not what I had expected - with some really curious items for sale that are thoughtfully displayed. Yes the lady working there said about workshops next year - good to hear.

According to the interview in Lewisham Life, it's run by the daughter of local actor Timothy Spall.
