A woman went to the toilet in an antique shop's wicker basket and used two Victorian christening gowns to clean herself.
The bizarre incident left the Holt shop manager shocked and police are investigating.
Philip Morris, owner of Cottage Collectables on Fish Hill, was away when the offence happened on Monday September 8 between 11.30-11.45am but was told about it by a woman looking after the shop.
He said: 'It was a shock to hear the news. It is very rare and has never happened here before.'
Mr Morris said it was understood the culprit was middle aged and was not a local resident.
