Nostalgia is the brain child of Lynne and Hyw a married couple with a love of all things vintage and recycled. Lynne is passionate about finding recycled products and gets very excited when she discovers an item made out of something obscure such as a rusty old fret saw made into the most beautiful piece of furniture or bags made out of old lorry curtains.
Fortunately we have a small talented team behind the scenes who make the most amazing creations. Hyw on the other hand is at his happiest working away in his workshop covered in saw dust, he loves nothing more than coming across an old unloved piece of vintage furniture and giving it a new lease of life by cleaning, stripping, polishing and making it beautiful again. Together we source items the length and breadth of the country and abroad, constantly on the lookout for unique quirky items to adorn your homes.
Our aim is to Inspire people to recycle, upcycle and think before discarding items and to purchase new products that have had a previous life.
Like many good business ours too started from a thirty plus old hobby which was reignited sadly by the passing of Hyw’s elderly uncle and as a result found us selling his household items at the local car boot instead of us buying. Eventually we cleared the surplus and needed to buy stock to continue our joy of car booting, so we started to visit the local auction houses, and in due course travelled further afield. By this time our love for all things vintage had been rekindled and we realised that this is where our passion lay so set about planning our Nostalgia business.
Our flagship store can currently be found on the high street in Bangor, Gwynedd. Nostalgia can also be found within a recently converted chapel called The Exchange in the centre of Beaumaris; a coastal town and popular holiday destination on the beautiful island of Anglesey, North Wales The Exchange is now occupied by over twenty small local businesses and independent traders who each have something unique to offer. In addition Nostlagia have a small unit at Corwen within Vintage Homestyles Emporium which also houses 20 antique and vintage dealers.
