Valentine’s at Vintage at the Tower

Valentine’s at Vintage at the Tower

We love vintage, we love Corbridge and we love love, and so Valentine’s is a day we take very seriously. From kissing frogs to cute green mogs, our vintage treasure chest is brim full of Valentine’s gems for romantics to explore. And Corbridge is perfect for a romantic day out. Stroll hand in hand along the river, before browsing independent shops and enjoying a romantic lunch or dinner.

The Tower

Vintage at the Tower is splendidly tucked away behind Corbridge’s historic vicar’s Pele Tower, now a wine bar on three floors. This fabulous building was created in 1318, possibly at the behest of the lords of Warkworth. This means a day of hunting vintage in our gorgeous shop can begin or end with a G and T at this historic tower.

Play Cat and Mouse

We have long been aficionados of glittering Butler and Wilson pieces and specialise in offering a good selection of these jewels to our customers and collectors. Classy, classic and generously studded with rhinestones, a Butler and Wilson brooch or necklace will be a lasting and long-loved Valentine’s gift - to your love or to yourself.


This cute cat and mouse brooch will be want-to-wear-able way after Valentine’s Day - and we love that ruby red heart! You can pair your Butler and Wilson jewel with a timeless Liberty scarf, as we have above, or with a soft Camille Cowl, studded lovingly with mother of pearl buttons, as we have below.

Well, we’ve all kissed a few frogs, and how, but when it’s a Butler and Wilson froggy, as pretty as these bulging-eyed babies are below, we don’t even care if they turn into princes! Loving the iconic Butler and Wilson details, like those gimlet eyes.
