New to the Shop This Week




Kitsch-tastic poodles!! Despite my business name I sell very little kitsch, but I've had these babies tucked away for a couple of years just waiting for the right time. Can you guess their intended use??





They are doorstops! They have big holes and rubber stoppers in the bases, one of them was still full of sand when I bought them.





Pretty floral 50s dress, such a flattering cut, but sorry girls, this one's already gone!





Stunning Art Deco display cabinet, of course this one is all due to Sue, how does she do it?! I keep asking myself too!





Superb detailing, so solid and heavy that 3 guys battled to get it inside
Some fun vintage feather boas, these should please our burlesque dancers
Lovely retro orange glassware







Lovely anodised cup set in a table, this is another special piece I've had stashed away






The 'twirly bits' at the base of the table are holders for your wine bottles






Original 1920s felt cloche





Gorgeous navy and white beaded hat, I love the little bell-shaped beads





Funky bright green retro mushroom lamp, I took this pic at night so the colour is a bit 'off', when unlit it's a fab vibrant green





Huge travelling trunk, complete with flip lid for jewellery, drawers, shoe briefcase and coathangers. Would you believe it weighs over a hundred pounds?! This pic doesn't do it justice unfortunately, but it really is a special piece which we were very pleased to acquire.


In other news.....I've been a bit slack on the blogging front this past week, haven't I? Well, we've been working on a couple of secret projects- I can't talk about them yet, except to say, they're all good and all vintage!

I can't believe the ceramic dogs were used as door stops! Surely, they'd get broken? Love that wine bottle and cup table, it's fantastic! Emma x

Miss Emmi said...

OH wow I really want that anodised cup set! There is something about drinking out of cups made from that which brings me right back to my childhood. Funky design too! I also love the traveling case but hate to think about the overweight charges it would bring while traveling! Could make a cute mini wardrobe alternative though... brb planning a trip to queensland!

There's a ceramic poodle doorstop in the porch of a house I regularly pass. One day I'm going to knock the door and demand they sell it to me. I love them.
That travel trunk is brilliant, impractical but when's that ever mattered? xxx

Poodle-o-bilia - our word for collecting poodles. I'm sure there's a fan just waiting to snap those us. The dress is too sweet, just needs the perfect hat and gloves... oooh and you have the hats! Great fun browsing it all.
