If it is where it used to be, then it is in the high street.

I've just google mapped "high street Wollaston, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, United Kingdom" and the arrow pretty much points to the spot! I think, but stand to be corrected, that the blue roofed building with the large carpark is the place.

Default Lingerie factory shop

Hi
Interested in the DMs and also vaguely aware of somewhere near Barton Seagrove that sells Freya and Fantasie lingerie as a factory outlet. Can anyone help with directions as soon to live in Bozeat but a little new to the area and a bit hopeless with directions

Lingerie shop is called :
EVEDEN LD Lingerie and Swimwear
Rothwell Road
DESBOROUGH
Northants
NN14 2PG
Phone : 01536 761252

Phone for opening times as I know they are not open very day

Brands they sell : Fantasie, Rigby and Peller, Freya, Goddess - but as this is an outlet store you have to take you chances on what is available.

Can highly recommend the fitting services.

Hi, does anyone know if this shop is still going? Do they do suitable shoes for young children for school at all? (5 - 10 ages range?)

Thankyou x

Yes, it's still going - open Wednesdays-Saturdays from 10.30.


Was only told about it for the first time yesterday - took a drive up not knowing the opening times, so will have to go back again later in the week (the kids don't mind - found a nice park on the edge of Wellingborough where we can feed the swans, and spotted a sign for a mini railway nearby, so we'll make a day of it, lol).

It's just behind the actual factory by the way, up the side road to the left of the site from the main road - although if you do get stuck, just ask in the factory reception as she was very helpful with me yesterday (and I got the chance to oogle the beautiful custom Harley they have in the reception area, lol).


DMs do make kids footwear, but as it's a factory shop I don't know what their range is like - hoping they have something as eldest is desperate for some new boots - his just about made it to the end of term - and the DM drive yesterday was on the back of about 8 different shoe shops with no joy (has orthotics and wide feet so we all dread when he's due new boots).

Will let you know how it goes. I know the factory shop that used to be in Leicester had a great kids range, so hoping this is the same.

I live near the DM's factory shop and it was my little secret until now!!

Great place, kids shoes 10, and a great selecton too, especially girls.

Womes boots start at 25, but fantasic quality. A bit hit and miss on designs....always the ones you want...never in the size you want!!

Well worth a visit though!!

yes it is open from 10.30 to 4 Wednesday to Saturday and is white building with car park at the back its just next to THE YARD opposite Methodist church which is around 64 high ST Wollaston.
Am going Saturday and will post prices etc later.

Lots of bargains my size 11 they had about 30 different styles shoes and boots which are 20 boots 25.
I bought shoes which I priced up on web original price 75 am#zon price 60 so saved 40 on them.
Boots cost me 25 am#zon price 100.
OK don't expect every style but if your open to a bargain then it well worth a visit.
