This is the 2nd post in a series detailing an amazing trip down to Wellfield Court in which I found a number of fantastic little shops I think you should all know about!
After the success of finding one amazing little shop I decided to try my luck at another! Taking only a couple of steps out of Mojo King (From the previous post) I found myself staring longingly at the window of a vintage store. The window was packed with a myriad of different items, from silver jewellery to Tiffany-style lamps, and the piece that caught my eye was a beautiful earthen-ware jug with the logo of Green’s ginger wine!
Granted this item may not be everyone’s cup of tea, I fell in love with it! There was a certain charm that it held and I couldn’t help but snap a photo so that I would remember to come back and buy it. To my dismay I couldn’t buy it then as I had noticed the owner, Belinda O’Donnell, inside was packing up her bags and getting ready to close the shop. When Belinda looked up and noticed me stood there fawning at the selection she had in the window she asked whether there was anything I particularly liked? I leapt at the offer and snapped up the jug for a bargain! Once inside the shop I realised I had seen not even a fraction of the beautiful things she had on sale.
Whilst Belinda wrapped the jug for me I had a look around and found so many more items I wanted to take home and have forever, an amazing collection of vintage men and women’s wear, jewellery to die for, lamps, furniture etc. Everything you could ever want could be found in this store; perhaps this is why the store won Cardiff Lifestyle’s Best Cardiff Fashion Retailer – 2016!
Some links that can show you more of Belinda O’Donnell’s store and stock;

Hopefully I will find myself in the shop again to make some more purchases and who knows, maybe I will see you there also!
