Kirkburton

So Vintage Kirkburton HD8 NetworkToday I spend a lovely afternoon in Kirkburton putting a face to the business and making introductions.   I dropped in on shops and businesses and gave them a flyer, telling them to find us on Social Media and tell everyone about themselves and their offers.

If you manage to find parking in Kirkburton it’s a great place to shop and be beautified – so many boutiques, hairdressers and beauty spas!

Why not stop off for a cup of tea (or cheeky glass of prosecco) in the new So Vintage Tea Rooms & Vintage Dress Shop or buy yourself an outfit in Dare Boutique … or even buy yourself a home at Boultons Harrisons Estate Agents.

Wherever I visited today I was warmly welcomed.
