Darn It & Stitch

Just off Oxford's busy St Aldate's in Blue Boar Street is a small haberdashery store in what looks like the wall of Christ Church College. Blue Boar Street is not a major street that I visit, and I am not sure how long this Darn It & Stitch has been there, or the history of the building. Would like to know what else has been in this spot over the years, see the entrance way that has been bricked up on the right? Where did that go? Oxford has so many Questions when you start looking.

Just had a comment from PG who has updated me with what was here in the early 1990's staying that there was a ethnic/pagan/hippy shop which sold celtic decorated things and scented candles. Any other advances on this update? What was the name of the store? Anyone remember this?

Ooh how very useful! I will have to pop in next time I'm in town. What used to be there, some years ago in the early 1990s, was a kind of ethnic/pagan/hippy shop which sold celtic decorated things and scented candles, if I remember rightly.

I saw the haberdashery store there last summer when I visited the Museum of Oxford next door, but don't know how long it's been there.

It opened last summer, everything you need for anything to do with habberdashery. Very nice helpful lady runs it!
