New To The Shop This Week- Viva La Rustica!



Do you love your vintage rusty, rustic, crusty, worn or wooden??

Looking for something ripe for upcycling??

We've had a virtual tonne of new crustic (as I call it) vintage come in to the shop lately, I've been rather slack on the blogging front lately, so here are some new additions over the past few weeks.







I'm particularly loving this 1940s galvanised post/letter box.




I'm getting a bit of an obsession with tin stuff lately, can you tell? Ha!




Tons of trios....




Two new old bathroom wall cabinets, this one 'shabby' the other is Art Deco with chrome railings and a pop-out mirror





1950s porcelain coffee grinder in perfect working order.





And more tins than you can poke a stick at.




I have some very exciting news to share with you all shortly, a big new project I've been working on (which has been sucking up all my time) can soon be announced.

Stay tuned folks!

Love the " crustic". The letter box is pretty fantastic! Very excited you are WAC bound. I had an epiphany about work and have decreased my space by one shop. I will tell you more about it soon. Xxxx

I'm a sucker for "crustic" ha ha! Love old patina stuff and chipped paint, all that. But best of all I love a good blue/white tea cup- so you are my cup of tea. How I would LOVE to peek inside your shop! Can't wait to hear your good news.

That post box has me wistful and longing. Have wanted something vintage and kitschy to stuff mail in the kitchen as am tired of it piling up on the table. Too cute.

Hey stranger! You've been missed!
Love knackered, tatty old furniture, nothing I like more than a afternoon spent sanding stuff down and painting it (with a glass of something alcoholic, naturally)!
Can't wait to hear your secret! xxx
