Selection of beautiful pieces have arrived!

Hello to you all. Hope you are well and excited to be starting the official countdown to christmas. I have just returned from France and a huge amount of stock will be online in the next couple of weeks. I have started today by loading a selection of gorgeous pieces I have finally decided to part with.

As you all know I love pieces that are just slightly better than the norm and all of these pieces have something that makes them stand out from the rest. Be it their colour, details or history.

Also for you keen bargain hunters I still have my winter sale on which has been a great success but fear not there are still plenty of pieces at reduced prices to get hold of before the sale concludes at the end of next week. If you are looking for those unique gifts for those special people in your life please look no further as I have a huge selection of special items and I can also guarantee delivery before christmas.

With that all being said please enjoy looking through the website and let me know if I can help at all.

A little bit about my recent trip to France!

France is always great fun but never easy. It is something I decided I wanted to do at the start of last year. It was huge risk as the expense to make it work it very high and there are never any guarantees. I always go with a little list in my head to focus my attention on specific pieces before going off impulse and buying what I see... but the truth is the list is very rarely matched as you can only buy what is there. It can be extremely frustrating. For example this time I went with the intention of buying large mirrors but I couldn't find any to save my life!

You cant allow this to block your vision for other things, and I speak from experience when I say that is easy done and it can lead to a poor fair. Thankfully when I go I make sure there are multiple fairs on and also travel to surrounding towns on the hunt for interesting items.

The excitement I feel when I get to the fair is always electric and I know that most people around me have the same anticipation to get in there and see what they can find.

The French do the fairs very well. The way they build up the anticipation is by keeping the gates shut for both buyers and sellers until 8 every morning. Meaning no early entry and a level playing field once those gates open! Hundreds of people pour into these fairs, so it is safe to say the competition is definitely on and its very easy to loose out on a piece but you just have to keep going and hope you find something at the next stall. With both buyers and sellers getting in at the same time you have to be watching sharply for what is being pulled out of vans and also try to spot those pieces still not unpacked yet! It is extremely tricky and not helped by my ability to speak French which is almost none existent.

​​​​​​​With all of the above combined it leads to a very exciting, thrilling and frustrating trip everytime! It is those emotions mixed that is so addictive and keeps me coming back. I love the hunt and the chance at finding some amazing pieces. This past trip has given me some of the best tables and chairs I have had to date.

​​​​​​​The next mail shot will be a number of these pieces so I hope you like them.

Thank you again for returning and reading to this point I always appreciate it and I hope that you find it interesting.

I will be in touch again soon with more interesting pieces.
