Charity shop manager Sarah Emery has certainly put her heart into Valentine’s Day.
The former research scientist, who manages Morpeth’s Salvation Army store in Newgate Street, has created a fabulous romantic dress to decorate the shop window for the celebration.
She said: “I have always drawn and liked art, and when I had a big change of career about two years ago the new job gave me the ability to do something creative. I just love it.
“It is the first time I have made a dress for the window. I wanted to do something different to draw people’s eyes to the shop and let them know that we have a big display full of Valentine’s gifts.
“It took about two hours to do. I went and got cards and glue from Yorkshire Trading and a bit of material from The Sewing Shop because I like to keep things local.
“We’ve had about five people in trying to buy it, but it is staying in the window for now.”
She added: “I always like the windows to be something different and something nice for Morpeth.
“We do get a lot of people coming in and telling us our windows look nice. Even people from Rutherford’s have been in to say so, which is a huge compliment for us. A couple of artists have also said we have done well, which is just amazing.
“It will definitely be something I try to keep up. I’m already thinking about Easter.”
