The growing popularity of The Centre in Margate has resulted in yet another business getting ready to open its doors.
The revitalised site, which is home to stores including record shop and music venue Elsewhere, clothes store Margate Superstore and ModernProvider bakery, now welcomes an array of ‘reloved’ furniture with Burley and Field.
The venture will also stock handmade earrings, bespoke brass record holders, bespoke designed cushions and local vintage souvenirs.
It is run by Craig Englefield with partner Richard Burley who are making the move into the unit, opposite ModernProvider, with a soft opening on Saturday, November 9 and a launch party on November 16 from 1pm to 4pm.
The pair, who moved to the isle from London just over two years ago, have been offering goods at Ramsgate’s Petticoat Lane Emporium but have now decided to take the plunge and open up on their own.
Former enforcement boss Craig, 47, is the lead with ‘the eye for detail’ says digital management worker Richard.
Richard, 42, said: “We have always wanted to be a part of Margate and The Centre seems the perfect area for us to get involved in.
“It is nice and vibrant and lots of new businesses are moving in. It feels like a joyful place.
“Craig is the one with the eye for detail which people really notice when they see the reloved furniture.”
Burley and Field make each of their pieces unique with a Hollywood, Regency, Art Deco or 1960/70s influence, stocking everything from Lloyd Loom to barley twist tables and vintage kitchenalia.
Richard said: “We are really excited about the move and opening in Margate.”
The Centre has undergone a colourful transformation this year at the hands of new owners owner Sheet Anchor Evolve, working with Sarah-Jane Cook, best known as SJ, from the Margate Superstoreand isle artist, Jade Spranklen, who painted the large mural on the wall opposite Peacocks.
