We wondered out to Blackheath in the late afternoon where I saw what it possibly the most exciting thing ever…. Noa Noa is coming to town! A shop is opening on Montpelier Vale on 23rd September. I will be there camped out on their front door step, nose smushed against the glass.
I first discovered Noa Noa in 2003 when racing in the Tall Ships Race (the very final Cutty Sark Tall Ships Race) through Danish Waters and the Baltic Sea. Due to a number of electrical issues with our boat, we ended up in port in Aalborg a little longer than we originally anticipated; And there I had a near religious experience in my very first Noa Noa store.
Over the years I have been exceedingly restrained and not bought very many pieces. Instead, I have waited and saved and only bought the odd little bit here and there. But the temptation of having a whole shop in my door step my be a little too much to bare!
