Cambridge Satchel Company – Cambridge Store Opens!

I’ve had a fairly quiet weekend following a mental couple of weeks at work, so G and I headed to town yesterday to have our usual coffee date and a mooch around. Decaf for me of course.

Whilst in town I could feel myself being drawn to the colourful goodness of the Cambridge Satchel Company Store which opened on Rose Crescent on Saturday! To say I was a wee bit excited was an understatement. It was glorious.

For the opening they had neon bicycle cupcakes to match the satchels of course, and champagne and chocolates aplenty. We avoided these for the sake of weight watchers points and had a lovely chat with the embossing guy as he personalised two newly purchased satchels.

I swooned over the Chelsea Collection for a good while, especially the beautiful mint one. G made a mental note and mentioned birthdays etc……it’s the big 3-0 this year so maybe a minty satchel could be mine *dreams*.

The shop is light and fresh and stocks a whole range of colours including my classic red batchel. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

G and I talked about the Cambridge Satchel Company journey and how it went from small business to huge business. If you’re not aware of the story, check out this video – inspiring stuff. It’s great to see how bloggers have played a part in the success of the company.

We did some more shopping in Molton Brown and then headed home for email catch ups and tidying. I’m loving having a desk now in my new craft room which displays these beautiful Protea I got from my work colleagues.
