A South Tyneside antiques and homemade crafts dealer has opened her new shop in East Boldon.

A long-time antiques dealer, who has regularly appeared on ITV’s Dickinson’s Real Deal, has opened her latest shop in East Boldon.

Laurie Scully, who is from Boldon, has opened Laurie’s, on Tile Shed Lane, just next to Greenfingers Nurseries, where she is selling antiques, vintage stock and her own handmade crafts.

It is the second Laurie’s that the 36-year-old has opened, having previously opened her former shop (of the same name) a few years ago.

As well as antiques, Laurie has expanded her offering to include tea, coffee and a selection of more than 40 biscuits - which can be enjoyed by customers who visit her new shop.

Laurie has revealed to the Shields Gazette how her latest business venture has been going, what the feedback has been like from customers and her plans for the future of the business.

She said: “So I’ve opened another Laurie’s, I had a shop a few years ago and this time, I’ve expanded to house antiques, vintage stock as well as my own craft wears such as handmade soap and tie dye.

“I now have a tea, coffee and biscuit menu with around 30 types of tea and around 40-odd types of biscuits.

“This new location is fantastic, the size of the space is brilliant which means that I can do a lot more.

“I’m hoping to be able to use the larger room in the future to put on crafting and art classes.

“New and old customers have been coming in and the feedback has been really positive.

People are loving the space and the location so I couldn’t have asked for better feedback so far.”

Having previously traded at South Shields Market, as well as other markets across the North East, Laurie has taken a step back from that to focus on her permanent shop location.

She added: “The steady location and being in the same place is really working for me.

“Having my own space where it is set up how I want it with no changes is something that I’m really enjoying.

“I’ve also been able to take on a member of staff and depending on how the business grows, I’m hoping that I’ll be able to employ even more people in the future.”
