Having gathered inspiration from around the world, owners Jenny and Simon collect things they love to sell in their shop. Even the giant "RE" letters outside the store were found in a flea market in Paris.
RE is short for "Re-Found Objects", but in all honesty RE can stand for anything you want it to - REcycled, RElic, REstored, REscued. The store houses second hand goodies, one off items and recycled bits and bobs.
I also quite fancied buying one of these awesome shaving chairs to watch TV in, maybe when we finally buy our own house we can invest?
I could quite happily have spent my entire day exploring every inch of the shop. Every corner you turn there are more incredible things to look at.
From funky umbrellas and plastic vegetables to brightly coloured tea pots, soaps, old maps and seeds. You can't really head into RE with an idea of what you want because you never know what you might find.
It's no surprise that people travel miles and miles just to visit RE. Carefully hidden behind the garage it's not somewhere you'd just stumble across. All of RE's customers are there because they have come specifically for a look.
If you don't live in the North East, don't worry you can go to RE's website to take a look at all their treasures for yourself and also order online. However if you are ever visiting this part of the country make sure you get yourself to the shop because it's amazing to wander round.
I'd left Simon near a display of crockery whilst I went exploring, I'd been gone quite a while but was surprised to find him exactly where I left him. In this Aladdin's Cave of treasures what had he been looking at for all that time? An egg poacher! Love him!
