Hawes shop celebrates anniversary with fundraiser

Hawes vintage and retro shop Lilly’s is celebrating its fifth anniversary by raising money for Yorkshire Air Ambulance.

Owner Laura Dunn is marking the shop’s fifth birthday over the Easter weekend.

Laura said: “We moved here from Essex to live in the Dales and I’ve always wanted to run my own business.

“I can’t believe the shop has been open for five years. It is continually evolving and changing and looks very different to the opening day five years ago.

“There is always something quirky or unusual to find on the shelves or walls and Lilly’s is an official stockist for Frenchic Furniture Paint.”

Lilly’s is supporting the Yorkshire Air Ambulance this year and is raffling a chocolate Easter egg this weekend.

Laura added: “I am also launching my Lilly Made Me Buy It card as a thank you to my loyal local and visiting customers.

“I have 100 cards and for a £2 donation to YAA the customer will get 10 per cent off all purchases (excluding paint) until March 2020.

“I’m hoping lots of people will pop along this weekend – if only to have pink Lilly’s birthday cakes.”
