The Wool Towns Advent – December 23
Rippingales | Clare
Welcome to The Wool Towns Advent – each day, between now and Christmas Eve, we will be opening the doors on one of the region’s shining stars. Oh come all ye faithful, sing in exultation!
Rippingales is a small and pretty, family-run antique shop in the ancient market town of Clare. This ‘little gem’ of a shop should always be on your list of places to visit.
Situated in the High Street Rippingales is owned and run by dealer Paula Rippingale Mills who has been trading in Clare for over 10 years.
Having a special interest in childhood collectables, Paula always has a selection of antique and vintage dolls, teddies, toys, books and items such as samplers relating to the history of childhood.
With a varied and constantly changing stock, from Georgian ceramics to advertising to Hornby trains there is always something new to see and buy. You will also always find examples of cottage furniture, silver, jewellery, and garden items.
Rippingales are members of the Essex Antique Dealers Association, an association dedicated to raising the levels of professionalism in the Antiques Trade.
