Back home..

I’m back home now after a busy, brilliant, exhausting four days at this year’s Decorative Living Fair. This is such a lovely event for lots of different reasons. I assume it’s a good event for visitors looking for interesting items for their homes. But it is also a great event from the point of view […]

The Decorative Living Fair

This week I was delighted to receive an invitation to stand at the next Decorative Living Fair at Chelsea Town Hall on 6th October 2015. Last year I attended this fair as a customer rather than a stand holder and loved it. I had gone to carry out a bit of research really with no […]

Vintage surprises

First, I must apologise for not having written last week. Suddenly life became very hectic and I had to do lots of travelling. We have had lots of interest in our house and we are now in the scary/exciting position of having to decide what to do next. I have always thought I was a […]

Vintage linen and French pottery

This week I got to meet up with our great suppliers and take delivery of some beautiful new stock. Below are some images of our lovely buys. It was also wonderful to meet a couple specialising in old French pottery and to buy some pieces from them. They had a wonderful collection of pottery, and […]

Vintage linen

I love vintage linen. As a child there was a lot of beautiful crochet work around the house – the labours of the last three generations of women in my family. I have no doubt the seeds for my obsession with linen were sown way back then. What I love now though is the rough, […]
