Just off Cowbridge’s High Street, nestled right next to the beautiful church is the Vale of Glamorgan’s icon to recycling and sustainability – Happy Days Vintage Homestore.
An artisan market comprising over thirty individuals. It is one of the biggest and best stores in Cowbridge and simply oozes vintage and retro charm. Not only is it a must visit if you love all things vintage but it’s packed with cool collectables. It lives and breathes sustainability.
Packed to the rafters with restored vintage furniture, antiques and garden ware, Happy Days Vintage Homestore is home to a wonderful group of diverse, local small businesses, including a talented upholsterer, local artists and jewellery makers. There’s even a stall that recycles old car parts and homeware into seriously cool lamps and décor for the home.
In addition to the stock from local businesses they also sell ceramics, collectable toys, vintage cameras, books, magazines, comics, artwork, posters, vinyl records, ladies’ fashion, Harris tweed jackets, waistcoats and flat caps. There are Welsh dressers and plenty of Welsh themed products and a plethora of great upcycled and recycled ideas that would furnish any home.
Another great reason to visit Happy Days is the cafe. The ladies are really friendly and welcoming. Ladies will love this place and gents too, you’re missing a trick – it’s full of Man Cave essentials.
In the spirit of recycling, Happy Days also buys items. So, if you have any old bits and bobs that you are thinking of parting with, give them a call first. Who knows? You may get a few pounds back in your pocket, and know you are doing your bit for the planet. Happy days.
