About Us  

Afterglow is owned by designer-maker Diana Harris and opened for business in June 2014. 
The shop showcases more than 40 vintage traders, designer-makers and artists, local to the area, each handpicked for their individual style and creativity. 
An "Aladin's Cave", it features restored vintage furniture, curios, forgotten items ‘upcycled’ into new designs, artisan-crafted jewellery, handcrafted gifts, homewares and accessories, retro pieces and more. 
Diana is a former journalist and ITV press officer, who started her small vintage-inspired business while bringing up her four daughters. 
Diana says: “Opening Afterglow in Olney was a dream come true and followed three years of exhibiting at handmade and vintage fairs and in other people’s shops. Afterglow is a colourful, vibrant place which I hope customers will want to visit time and again because there’s always something different to discover. 
“Old furniture and vintage finds still have plenty to offer to us today. With a bit of care and creativity, they can be brought back to life or made into something new and unique to be enjoyed by a new generation". 
Adds Diana: “I'm very proud of the range of designers and traders who are part of Afterglow. It may be a small shop but packed inside is a wealth of talent and creativity." 
The shop is located in the historic market town of Olney, world-famous for its pancake race and for hymnwriter John Newton, who wrote Amazing Grace. The town has a thriving network of independent shops, a museum and is surrounded by beautiful countryside, making it a great day out. 
Afterglow is one of a group of Olney businesses who have come together to create a website to help visitors to discover the town. Find out more about Olney's many treasures at Visit Olney.
