A SPECIALIST clothing shop in Herefordshire is closing down.

Vintage Tramp in the Homend, Ledbury, will be shut this week, only re-opening briefly at 10am on Friday, August 2, for a closing-down sale.

Owner Kelli Tomasik had decided to concentrate on the property business she runs with her husband in Herefordshire and Wales.

She said: "It’s been a really tough decision, but one I needed to make.

"It’s all go. We have three renovation projects on at the moment and other exciting things in the pipeline.

"Unfortunately, I no longer have the time to dedicate myself to this and Vintage Tramp, so I have made the decision to close the shop."

Mrs Tomasik thanked the customers who had supported the shop.

"It’s been a fantastic experience and I have loved every minute of it," she said.

Mrs Tomasik was herself a fan of vintage clothing before going into business.

At the time of the shop's opening she said: "I originally worked in accounting and wanted a change of scenery, so I started off selling a few items from home and built an online presence for the store for about seven years before opening an actual shop."

She will be posting about her property business at KW Property on Facebook and Instagram.
