I spoke to Emma Betsy from Burley Lifestyle, Burley, Hampshire about her gorgeous lifestyle store in the picturesque village of Burley.
Burley Lifestyle is a small corner shop on 2 floors, situated in the heart of the New Forest, right opposite the Burley Manor Hotel. The shop has been there for three years but recently changed its name to Burley Lifestyle in September 2019.
Originally the shop was split between four people, all selling different things, but in March 2020 Emma took it over solely and still offer all sorts of gorgeous goodies. These include Art, furniture, Silk Flowers, Jewellery, Connock London's home and body range, Sarah Ireland fragrances and scented candles, other lovely gifts and of course Print Circus cards and prints. It’s full to the rafters with gorgeous things so you can take your time to browse!
The shop supports several local artisans and prides its self on supporting small businesses.
"Everyday I enjoy welcoming locals and visitors to the village into my shop, and every day we are blessed by all the free roaming horses, cows, pigs and deer that have the privilege of living in the New Forest." Emma Betsy
Burley is an enchanting place to visit, steeped in a history of witches and wizards and hosts many festivals and events throughout the year. Make sure you pop in to Burley Lifestyle if you are in the area!
