New To The Shop This Week
As usual, we've a variety of new goodies in store these past few weeks. This antique pine wall shelf came out of an old Queenslander, if you look at the back you can see it has been cut to fit a wall with a horizontal beam.
I was lucky to find 4 layers of old paint underneath, perfect for the shabby look everyone seems to love right now.
Lots of new glassware, including vintage champagne saucers, something that seems to be in demand lately.
1960s tapestry rocking chair, something that the many retirees on the mountain may remember from their childhoods. Dodgy lighting courtesy of the sun!
My latest shabby masterpiece (I'm allowed to call them that when they take a stupid amount of work, right?!), a fab antique pine slimline kitchen dresser.
It was a disgusting school-underpants-forest-green when we got it, with cracked white 1980s plastic handles on it, ugh, but look what I found underneath and did with some wooden handles Sue found.
Bangles and hair flowers now making an appearance.
Lots of new fashion coming in too, this 50s dress and jacket set is so twee but very cute, the jacket closes down the back, so not something you can don without help!
Rare green bakelite Smiths kitchen timer, as you can see this one is made to clip on to the old enamel stoves.
Pair of 30s/40s bentwood style chairs, straight into the kitchen as they go so well with the enamel-topped table.
And for all you green-in-the-kitchen fans, there's always plenty in our shop, how fab is this bakelite bread bin?!
