A few new bits and pieces





Sorry, but this happy couple are sold
A French wedding cake topper dating from the late 1930s/early 40s - the lady I bought it from said they had been used for each family wedding until her grandaughter eloped in the 80s and never married at all! It has had several repairs, and a new base - I haven't listed it yet but email me if you would like to buy at £10. The separate wax flowers - used in a buttonhole - are £5.


A cute little bedside lamp from 1940s - with the original bakerlite switch - more details here The colours of cream, browns, green etc are great for a study or guest room, perhaps where pastels may not suit.


just needs a new bulb holder - easy peasy!

Kitsch or what! Looks like the inside of an Elizabeth David cookbook...


Sorry - this piece no longer available (Happy Christmas Wendy!)
This is a great 1960s or 70s tea-towel or torchon rack - perfect for a retro kitchen or a collector of kitsch...you can see the Etsy listing here.
I love the kitchen utensils and 'stonework' behind...SO retro...


So sorry, but this item has sold already!
This is a lovely celluloid prayer book, dating from 1909 - you can read all about it here.

There are two prayer inserts, one is dated 1863 and made from a lace doiley. The Missel still has its original clasp.

I have got lots more stock to list - this is just the tip of the iceberg - but we have guests from Blighty arriving in a day or two, and a ton of tomatoes to bottle, beans to freeze, chutney to make and apples to pick, so please, bear with me...
