New To The Shop This Week

We've had so much new stock in this week I hardly know where to start! I've been working my absolute butt off in the last ten days to get it all into the shop, here's a selection for you to ooh and aah over :)

We did a fantastic bulk buy of 30s-50s vintage clothing last week, above is one of the stunning dresses we bought. I've taken quite a few up to the shop already but you should see how many are still hanging in my laundry waiting to be washed, LOL. I'll show you a few more next week when I have more time to take good photos for you.

We've changed around a few of the kitchen displays- Sue put this red and blue-themed one together on our newest tea trolley, and didn't she do a good job?!

As I've mentioned before, things come in runs, and lately that's whats been happening with tins, we seem to have bought quite a few.

Can you spot the other (accidental) theme here?? Yes- cats! You'd be forgiven for thinking I'm obsessed with them or something, LOL.

Some beautiful retro 60s glassware

Fantastic mid century standard lamp with a perfect original shade

Can't go wrong with a tooled leather handbag...

But how about a GREEN tooled leather handbag?!

Bright red Vespa bag, not an oldie but so cool we've made an exception to our strict rule about not selling any repro
a selection of bow ties...I was going to say 'for the boys' but no, girls can definitely wear these too!

We now have quite a number of old copper items too-basins, kettle, jugs, and these trays.

We have them displayed up on a high picture rail in the kitchen, and I can just see them displayed that way in someone's country or shabby-themed kitchen.

Old Dutch clogs, brought to Australia by a migrant in the 60s, he'd held on to them all this time until I bought them from him last week. I love buying things with a bit of personal history to them

How awesome is this lamp?! Sue can take all the credit for this, she's the resident lamp queen!

 The wingspan is as long as my arm, hard to get a good photo, but see below how pretty it is when lit up

and last but of course not least, some jewellery

1920s/30s bakelite 'flapper girl' pendant

Some fabulous new shoe clips, I especially love the Art deco cut steel pair, a treat to add to either vintage or modern shoes.

Well I'm off to do another big fashion buy-up tomorrow (with VB's help of course!), I know I just did one last week, but hey, tomorrow is 'Frock on Friday', and I'll be giving it a whole new meaning, lol.

Wish me luck!

The "Flapper Girl" is Little Orphan Annie. Some collector will be thrilled by that!

I remember seeing a lamp like that in a magazine I used to love "Apartment Life" back it the late seventies! They had an art deco room, and I was crazy about that lamp! Love it!
