Village Connect, the original community magazine, bringing local business to local villages

Bringing local business to local villages


Welcome to Village Connect, the original independent village community publication, bringing local business to local villages since April 2005.


Village Connect is published bi-monthly and hand delivered free of charge to more than 20,000 homes and businesses in 71 selected Northamptonshire villages, and has established itself as the premier notice board for businesses in the area.

but in the case of this new shop in Corby Old
Village there is no cause for complaint at all!
Spotting a gap in the market for specialist
luggage, Mother and Daughter, Linda and
Shannon Tamplin, set up Too Much Baggage
in May 2015.

Too Much Baggage offers a wonderful and
varied range of handbags, luggage and other
travel goods at excellent prices. With the
friendly charm for which the Irish are famous,
Linda and Shannon will show you around their
beautifully stocked shop.

All the quality names are exclusive to Too
Much Baggage in this area. Fiorelli, Bessie
and David Jones handbags are displayed
alongside a range of quality leather handbags.
Customers can choose from quality luggage
makes including American Tourister by
Samsonite, Aerolite, Highbury, Rock and
Members. Linda has worked within the airline
industry for a considerable number of years and
has the experience to advise on durable but
lightweight luggage as well as a good working
knowledge of the various airlines and country
travel restrictions and size requirements.
Children are not forgotten at Too Much
Baggage; characterful and durable trolleys
and backpacks are stocked as are children’s

Top all this off with men’s bags, laptop bags,
evening bags, wallets, purses, gloves, scarves
and the fabulous range of Galleria umbrellas,
and Too Much Baggage is definitely too good
to miss.

Linda and Shannon are offering
readers of Village Connect a 10%
discount in January and February if
you bring the magazine into the shop.

Your magazine certainly proved to be a real winner for us, making our relocation from York so much less stressful for us. Right from our very first advert in Village Connect, we have had a great response which has kept us very busy. Thank you it has been a real pleasure to deal with you.
