Stripes shop locally for Independent' s day

Today is Independents Day so at Stripes we took the opportunity to visit our favourite independent retailers in Worcester. With the help of our intern, Sophie, we have created the perfect day out in the city by solely going to our local shops.


We started the day by visiting Papas Caffe on New Street ┬áin the old part of Worcester. Having only recently opened, we decided to try it out for breakfast. There are lots great choices ranging from a full English to croissants and coffee, all of which we can highly recommend! We’ll definitely be going back to try some of their tasty sounding sandwiches and salads….

Next we went to Anja Potze to look for some stunning jewelry. We were greeted by their ever friendly team who couldn’t do enough to help. There were so many beautiful pieces we were spoiled for choice but finally decided on a sparkly blue and silver ring, the perfect present!

Angela Veronica Cakes was our next stop. Their gorgeous cakes are hand made and never fail to disappoint. We loved their massive celebration cakes decorated with flowers, they would be a great center piece for a party. It was hard not to just buy one for ourselves!

Feeling peckish, we stopped off at Mac and Jacs deli to grab something for tea later. They had a lovely selection of cakes, tarts and pies. They also have a wide range of Tea Pigs teas if you fancy trying something new. We would choose some delicious bakewell tarts and grab some sauce for an easy pasta dinner.

After that, we carried on down Friar Street to Halo. We browsed through their sale, as well as new lines. They always have some great pieces. We tried on some shoes too, everyone has to treat themselves sometimes!

Finally we arrived back at Stripes. The sale is in full swing with some super discounts. We found the perfect black leather jacket, a must have item for everyone! To relax after the busy day we had enjoyed a manicure at the Beauty Salon with Jade. Pretty pink nails are a great addition to any new outfit.
