Earlier this year Rye News ran a story confirming that the then vacant former Christmas shop was undergoing a transformation, Waterman’s handcrafted leather shop was on its way. It has now arrived and is fully stocked, open and trading and well worth a visit. This is yet another new business opening in Cinque Ports Street and another otherwise vacant premises now fully occupied once more.
Inside is a huge selection of goods on offer to suit all budgets, why not treat yourself to a genuine leather belt, a pair of hand made moccasins or slippers, a new purse or wallet, handbag or laptop case? Believe it or not, Christmas is only six months away and if you’re looking for something functional and a little different then you may well find it in Waterman’s.
It’s an Aladdin’s cave of all things leather, just the aroma inside is worth sampling if nothing else and in these troubled times it’s great to see yet another new business opening its doors and defying the trend, your support is very welcome.
Wateman’s is at 35 Cinque Ports Street, Rye on 01797 360318 or after hours on 07740 745711
