Pride in Frome: Step back in time when you walk into new shop Lark Vintage
WALKING into Lark Vintage is like waking into a past century house.
There is an instant feeling of home over three storeys and a beautiful garden where a cup of coffee can be enjoyed or simply a rest for those tagging along with the busy shoppers.
Lark Vintage, on Paul Street, has been open since July after moving out of the shop Poot on Catherine Hill.
Owner and vintage fanatic Hayley Noad said: "We grew out of Poot and wanted more space for people to come in and have a look."

With the extra space, the range of products has changed and now includes vintage furniture and home ware.
Miss Noads gets her inspiration from her mum, with whom she shares the passion for vintage items, and she also helps out in the shop a couple of days a week.
The name Lark was chosen as it means new or fresh beginning, which is what you can say about the recent move.
Miss Noad said: "I have always been into vintage clothing and liked being differently dressed.
"I can't recall ever buying any high street clothing."
Hayley buy in or hand picks donated products for the shop. She spends most of her time outside opening hours on driving up and down the country to find and collect those rare useable vintage clothes.
Lark Vintage offers a great variety of outfits for all occasions fitting all wallet sizes, for men and women no matter what year you where born.
Asked what she thought about Frome as a shopping destination, Miss Noad said: "It's great. We have a good community with many independent businesses that help each other on Catherine Hill and Cheap Street.
"I'm proud to be in Frome and grateful for all the support from the local shoppers."
