About Us

We’ve enjoyed buying vintage homeware for the past 15 years, visiting junk shops, antique shops, brocantes, fairs and auctions, and decided we’d like to sell these items ourselves. By creating an uncluttered, simple website, we can bring a range of unique and hard to find pieces for the home, directly to our customers.

Our style is a bit of a mix really, mainly early to mid- 20th century, but most importantly our pieces stand out – beautifully. Great design will always look fantastic, even if it isn’t this seasons’ latest ‘look’ so we strive to stay faithful to our ethos rather than follow the crowd. We enjoy the restoration and research that goes with each item and of course the search – you never know what you’re going to find! Sometimes it’s difficult to tell where some of our items are from, but we always strive to give every item provenance wherever possible.

We also sell homeware from independent crafts people. Most of these fit with our vintage ethos so they are either upcycled pieces, e.g cushions made from vintage fabric or items that are just beautifully made like our willow baskets.

We’ve had some lovely comments from our customers, here are just a few of them:

Hello, just to say light shade arrived and it looks fab.

Hooks are on my wall, they look lovely!

Many thanks for your very speedy delivery. I was delighted with both items, which are Christmas presents.

I have your package in-hand and I’m absolutely delighted –better than I dared hope!  Thank you for your caring attitude and patience with my tiny order, it was, and is, most appreciated…

We hope you enjoy these items as much as we do!
