I have always felt that Nottingham doesn't have enough independent shops, but there is one that stands out the most! The Tokenhouse. They have been here for over 35 years and offer a great range of gifts, cards and homeware. Their window displays are to die for, it'll grab your attention and drag you in. Not that I'm complaining. Today I spotted this amazingly cute purse / clutch. It looks like an old book, and it has a card and change compartment and space to put my phone. A lot of the time I carry a large bag, so something like this just seems perfect, plus I'm going on holiday next week so it'll be pretty practical having everything together, aaand I've recently got a new job so this is a congrats present to me.. :) I cannot wait to use it.
