“When the shop became vacant we knew it would be perfect for us.
“We are so excited and look forward to welcoming old and new customers through the doors.”
The team is also celebrating 10 years in business and will launch a limited edition mug this summer to commemorate the occasion.
There are more than 25 collections in the Sophie Allport range and the new shop will showcase them all.

The shop will be open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 5.30pm and Sundays 10am to 4pm.
