Eric & Dolly’s, Burnham Market
Building on their Burnham Market bar, hotel and bakery empire - Katja & Tim have taken No. Twenty 9's unmistakable style and glamour and injected it into their new two story doggy boutique.
It’s no secret that Burnham Market is one of my favourite places to hang in Norfolk and it’s just got a whole lot better with the arrival of Eric & Dolly’s. If, like me, you have a pampered pooch or three, you’ll love a mosey around all the gorgeous accessories (dog perfume anyone?) and no doubt end up spoiling your best friend with a designer collar, cupcake or cooling bandana.
I’m surprised it’s taken so long for Burnham to add a dog boutique to the high street as dogs are a staple accessory in North Norfolk. Making it the perfect staycation for four legged friends and their families. When you first walk into Eric & Dolly’s, you might initially mistake it for a gifty type store – the interiors are beautifully crafted and laid out. Chandeliers, industrial wooden shelving and the most stunning orange osterich feather lamp. For those familiar with No. Twenty 9 next door – you’ll be pleased to see the continuation of the black and white prints theme featuring beautifully quirky dog photographs.
You’ll find lots of lovely treats from candles to beauty products and food stuff to clothing. I was instantly drawn to the wall of leads and collars, showcasing designers such as Mutts & Hounds, Max & Bone and the lovely and local Stoned & Wasted.
There is an element of the pampered pooch appeal, however you’ll also find plenty of practical products such as blankets, dog toys and poo bag holders (I wanted gold but relented and got black seeing as this is largely Mr O’s territory). It would be a miss of me not to mention the inspiration for the boutique – meet Eric the Boston Terrier and Dolly the miniture Bull Terrier!!
It’s all about the shopping experience and like an excited labrador, Eric & Dolly’s has this in leaps and bounds. Plus for a perfectly Muddy day out, pop next door for a pastry at No. Thirty 3 before finding a squishy sofa at No. Twenty 9 for something fizzy for you and biscuit for your doggy date.
