I have visited Marilyn and Melrose on a couple of times now, and last night had the pleasure of a one to one workshop with Karen, I had a truly amazing time and can not thank her enough.

The shop is in a lovely location and is packed with beautiful things and many pieces of furniture that Karen and Paul have lovingly restored using Annie Sloan paint.

I look forward to my next visit.

I visited this cozy little shop in Alnwick. I was really delighted with such good taste. I had the opportunity to attend a workshop and was really fascinated. Thank you Karen and Paul.

visited early may with my husband, we were wandering around the town of alnwick and came upon this shop, down an alley, it is an amazing shop full of beautiful things for the home, very reasonably prices, i bought a picture frame and a couple of other bits, but could have spent a fortune. the gentleman was very helpful and friendly. would definitely recommend a visit too this shop if u like too put the 'extra finishing touches' too your home. we will definitely be returning and if necessary shopping on line

Visited Marilyn and Melrose, whilst on holiday, in October 2012. I had identified them as an 'Annie Sloan' stockist so they were therefore, top of my list, to visit. The owners were really friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the paint. They gave me lots of advice and ideas. Dogs are welcome, inside the shop, which meant my other half didn't have to stand outside for ages whilst I had a look around. Will definitely recommend to others.

Visited Marilyn and Melrose after finding they were the stockists for Annie Sloan paints that someone had recommended to me. I have bought some furniture for my daughters bedroom and would like to have a go at painting them. Really excellent service and advice from Marilyn and Melrose, and I bought some lovely paint. I am still psyching myself up to do the actual painting and think I may go on one of their workshops first to give me the confidence to have a go! Would recommend all to visit!
