Dear Diva Readers,

This shop – located at 35 Main Street in Callander, Scotland – is as wonderfully quirky and fun, fantastic and eclectic as the shop owner, George Johnson, himself. Simply put, I loved it! Consider this eccentric shop a “Don’t Miss Stop” on a Scotland Tour with something for virtually everyone.
Trade readers take note: shop owner George is clearly onto something… in a day and age where shop owners are complaining about the lack of foot traffic in their store, Lady Kentmores was positively heaving with customers searching out a random variety of paraphernalia from sensational sixty’s ephemera for mere pence to a thousand quid antique silver brooch. If Lady Kentmores were a martini, it would be equal parts vintage, antique, vaudeville with a dash of freak show – shaken, not stirred.
Look at the loot we bought at Lady Kentmores!! Don’t you just love the Victorian horse slippers I bought as a Christmas present for my rancher father? My niece scored both a dagger and Venetian mask and my husband the gin decanter! Still regretting I didn’t nab that purse!!
