New To The Shop This Week

Lots of new stuff in this week!

As always it's a variety, have a look and tell me your favourite/s.

Super-fine hand blown glass perfume bottle.

It has a very unusual motif on it, I wonder if any of you have seen one like this before?
Fantastic 60s serving platter, complete with cocktail picks.

1920s quick cooker by Grimwades-apparently a valuable item these days, see below

I love the instructions all over the lid!

My latest favourite 50s dress. It has the original belt intact but we covered it with this wide piece of 50s ribbon for better colour contrast.

Fabric close-up.

The weather has really turned in the last couple of weeks (todays high temp on the Mountain was only 19, which here is considered practically freezing) so I took a few furs up. this is a super-snuggly fake fur coat.

This is real though, musquash with squirrel tails, quite unusual.

Rare Art Deco solid brass dinner gong with red bakelite in the base, pardon my reflection in the chime there!
I have yet to find a retro dinner gong but I really want one. If you have one, please show and tell!

My favourite items would have to be The Art Deco dinner gong1 I love anything a little Art Deco and that's a really quirky piece!

The unusual musquash with squirrel tails looks really nice but I would prefer it to be faux fur as I'm not sure how I would feel having squirrel tails hanging off of me!

The 60's serving platter looks like a fun piece! xxx

I love that 60's serving platter! *How fun*

That dress is gorgeous I have something with sort of the same kind of pattern but less exquisite than yours!
