New Shop Photographs

Not been into the shop lately? Things have been selling quickly so it’s all change! Here are a few pictures of how it looked earlier today…

Antique maps

Geranium brought in these lovely maps taken from an 1880 atlas. They are in perfect condition and at just £3 they’re a steal… (The vintage painted basket is quite cute too!)

Bakers tray

Old Hat may be small but we have very high ceilings. When we spotted this gorgeously rusting bakers tray we knew it would be perfect for displaying higher up… Now I want to find another for home!

Bedroom chair

This lovely bedroom chair has a very generously padded seat and is lovely to settle into. Great for sitting at the dressing table or just curling up with a good book… It features lovely carved designs and the original ceramic castors.

Bench and peg rack

I have a real thing about chippy paint – you may have noticed? This gorgeous painted bench features at least four layers of beautifully worn, chippy paint. I love it!

The lovely planter is made by Cottage Box and handpainted by a professional, artisan signwriter. Get in touch and you can choose what to have written!

The gorgeous basket is a great size. Pile in cushions or cosy blankets and keep it handy for those late summer evenings in the garden with friends and family.

Cushion corner

Taking advantage of those high ceilings again…

Notice something weird about the bookcase? It currently only has one door because we are partway through completely changing its look. It features drawers at the bottom and we think it will look fantastic once painted. Currently it’s home to some of our gorgeous cushions and the lovely signwriter’s letters from Cottage Box.

Vintage pub table

This vintage table has probably heard some interesting stories in its previous life as a pub table; now it’s time to create new stories around it. It’s bijou size makes it perfect for a small kitchen or a conservatory. The frame has been painted and waxed, whilst the top has been gently sanded then oiled, allowing its wear and character to remain. It even still features the original table number!

So that’s a quick tour featuring some of our current stock. If you see something you like  get in touch quickly; we may be able to reserve it / ship it to you, but we won’t be able to get another like it!
