“A true Gem”
Review of Edward and Vintage

Attraction details
Owner description: Edward and Vintage is set in the heart of the Peak District. Housed in the former post office in the village of Tissington. Edward and Vintage is situated at the start of two wonderful foot paths taking you across fields to the Tissington trail. A great venue to get your supplies for the walk or to sit and enjoy a handmade ice-cream in the gardens of the cottage after a day exploring.

Reviewed December 2, 2012

We visited Tissington last year and were very impressed with Edward and Vintage. We went back today and we were very impressed with not only the products but also the staff. They brought us some chairs in and created us a lovely warm spot, even providing a blanket for our dog. Fab hot chocolate and lots of great products. We bought some yummy sweets and some great Christmas presents. The staff just could not do enough for us. Thank you for a great time. We will be back....

Where do I begin to tell you about the fabulous experience of this 1950's sweetie shop?
If you are ever in The Peak District, make sure that you make an effort to visit beautiful Tissington village. When you do, set foot into the quaint, Edward and Vintage shop ,which as well as selling gorgeous confectionary also sells vintage homeware and basketware.
If you are of a certain age group, it will transport you back to your ill-spent youth with the amazing selection of retro sweeties! As you step foot into the shop you can hear 1950's music
and your nose is confronted with a delicious overwhelming aroma of goodies.
The proprietor of the shop looks the part in his vintage clothes. He, and other staff in the shop welcome customers warmly , some of whom travel from afar regularly to sample the confectionary and atmosphere of this wonderful shop.
Another reviewer has mentioned the Riley's chocolate toffee roles. They are now available in milk and dark chocolate and are an absolute must for any chocolate lover!!!
Lovely, lovely , lovely!!!

Must visit this little shop when in Tissington. Beautiful presentation and excellent service. I'm not even a sweet fan but always leave with at least a couple of bags, they have some really traditional sweets available to take you straight back to the 70s, or 50s, 60s!!
