Wisbech’s newest shop opened on Saturday, with new Fenland Poet Laureate Poppy Kleiser adding a literary twist to the occasion.
Poppy wrote a poem specifically for the opening of Emporium, on Market Street, about a poet who opens a shop. It delighted owner Jeni Townsend, who is an award-winning poet as well as a designer and crafter. She plans to put the poem up in the store.
The shop sells a mix of vintage and new items for the home, with handcrafted items made by local people.
