A new store with the aim of raising money for hospices in Cornwall has opened in Falmouth.

Cornwall Hospice Care has relocated its retro store from Penryn to Church Street, Falmouth.

The new shop sells vintage and retro clothes, bric-a-brac, books, and homewares along with a few smaller items of furniture from its new location.

Since the move, the shop has said it's been very busy throughout July and that the shop had been blown away with the support it has received.

Shop manager, Lindsay Taylor, said: "We’re very happy to report that our new retro shop is open and proving to be very popular here in Falmouth!

"It’s styled differently to the rest of our shops with a lovely retro feel, it really is worth a look to see what you might find.

"Sales have been great in our first few weeks exceeding our expectations and this is great news for our charity, as the money raised helps to fund St Julia's and Mount Edgcumbe Hospices.

"I'd like to add a special thank you to our teams that helped this happen and to all our wonderful customers old and new!

"Thank you."

The shop is on Church Street, near the Church of King Charles The Martyr and is open Monday to Saturday from 10am - 5pm.
