A new beauty business called “Beauty-Box” is taking over the premises in Victoria Road formerly occupied by Avalon Antiques.
Work has just begun on fitting out the premises and its hoped everything will be ready for an opening at the beginning of December. Fuller details will be provided closer to the opening date.
Meanwhile the shop and surrounding premises – including the former Ty Gwin Wine Bar (now The Florist) has been making a cameo appearance in the BBC Saturday night medical soap series“Casualty”
The premises which will become the new Beauty Box shop are next door to the shoe retailer Ogam Igam – both of which were to be seen in last night’s BBC prime time medical soap Casualty during a scene which was shot inside the former Ty Gwin Wine Bar.
What was Avalon Antiques has featured in several tv series made in Penarth, including the Antiques Road Show and a comedy series for S4C .
UPDATE: Thanks to those correspondents who adroitly spotted that the Casualty location was the former Ty Gwin Wire Bar and not Foxy’s as originally stated.
