We Are Cow, the Northern Quarter upcycled boutique!

 It would be an awful crime to visit Manchester and not explore Northern Quarter!...and I have committed that crime! I have been living in Manchester for over a year now and haven't really explore the place yet! Northern Quarter, is a surrealistic place that combines hidden vintage shops, quirkee cafes and all that, is surrounded with red brick walls with graffities.  I went there once or twice for drinks with my friend but usually we got back to an old spot, Spienningfield. I didn't really walk the area day time!
I went there the other day to a craft shop to buy some accessories for a client and I passed this amazing shop WeAreCow. I didn't notice at first but I remember the shop when it was located at Piccadilly Gardens area.
I came back with camera the following day. I love this shop! I think it's an amazingly upcycled vintage boutique! It's very unique combination with industrial raw materials, quirky lighting, soft pastels and unique accessories.
Let's have a walk with me....











                   
                   

Have you enjoyed your visit? :)
I am upcycling freak! I love what you can do with an old items! Just look the lighting or the doll houses(which are lights as well!) It's not an usual vintage shop! I believe each piece has been selected carefully. I also while browsing really liked few pieces! I need to come back after pay day ;)  Oh you probably interested who design this place ! Peter Masters is behind this great interior ! Well done Peter!
