cakestand & crumb

Sometimes , when you least expect it, you stumble across one of life's little treasures.


cakestand & crumb is a beautiful little shop that has recently opened  in Bedfordshire's small market town of Ampthill , and is open for homemade cakes, tea, coffee and cordials, vintage homewear, plants and herbs.

When you step into the shop you are immediately transported back to a bygone era,
beautiful dressers displaying vintage glasswear and linens,


cosy inviting corners with vintage crochet throws


retro sweets 


gorgeous home made cakes displayed using vintage cakestands,


all served using beautiful vintage china,


in what could easily feel like home,
so much so you just don't want to leave...just my cup of tea !
