Some new stock - all metal or wood!

Beautiful set of 10 tole French curtain rings, with a strong hinge and pretty mount.

In excellent condition, these vintage rings are so easy to use

Sorry, but the curtain rings are sold

You just open the clip so the tiny teeth grip the curtain, and then merely thread the ring over the curtain pole et voila! An easy - and gorgeous way - to dress a window. Perfect for holding a monogrammed sheet at a window, or fine muslin...You can read more here.

sorry - the brioche tin is sold
Let them eat brioche...this is a rare vintage French brioche - cake - tin, with the sweetest shell shaped handles, making it easier to turn out the baked brioche.

Just perfect to add to a tin or kitchenalia collection...You can buy it here.

This wonderful 19thc flour sieve would look the part in a rustic, country kitchen. Practical too!

sorry - the sieve is sold
In excellent condition, you can read about it here.

This old vintage handle was once in use in a Surrey cinema long since demolished. Beautifully made, solid as a rock, this would look great greeting customers in a vintage or antique shop, or you could even use it as a towel rail in a retro bathroom...

Sorry but this handle is sold
You can read more about the handle by clicking here.

Another vintage item that would look superb in an antique or vintage shop is this French shop bell. We have one at our side door - we have added a little chain, and our visitors just tug at the chain and we can here it through the house and garden. So practical...

So sorry - the shop bell is sold
In wonderful vintage conditon, with just a little rust and LOTS of verdigris, you can buy it from my Ebay shop here.

Sorry - the shoe lasts are sold
This pair of vintage shoe trees - or cobblers' lasts - are interesting - they fold at the hinges, and can be hung up when stored away. Making slippers was a local small industry here in Limousin - it was something the farmers and their wives could do when the weather was too bad to farm - I think these may have been used for just that purpose, but ideal for keeping vintage shoes in shape...you can see more here.

Sorry, but this violet cup is sold.

Well, ok, this isn't really a jug - it's a tiny French coffee cup, hexagonal in shape - how sweet it would look filled with a posy of violets...

Sorry but Wedgwood is sold
This is a lovely Wedgwood jug - for cream with summer strawberries - or again, a posy of flowers.

Now this jug isn't dainty at all, but filled with vin rouge at your next barbecue - what could be better?

You can read more about these in my Etsy shop here. See you there!

Sorry - this fabric is sold (except for a little remnant :) - it's going to South Africa! Couldn't be a footballer's wife could it?

This fabric is double the width too - very good value for money, metre for metre.

Bath-time finds...

Sorry, but the bath rack is sold

Sorry but Thea Nigra is sold

Sorry, Cinnamonum is sold

Sorry - both pairs now sold

Just a few bath-time finds I have for sale - the vintage bath rack is just great for soap, sponge and propping up the latest novel - do you read in the bath? You can buy it here and save yourself from getting your book wet!

The antique glass Pharmacy jars came from an old shop in Rochechouart, a small nearby town where millions of years ago, a huge meteorite crashed to earth - now, many of the houses are built from the resulting vulcanised pumice stone. You can read more about the jars here and here. These vintage jars are SO handy for storing cotton wool balls, bath salts, soaps - and they look good too.

Working on the fact that you can't have enough guest or hand towels, these vintage snowy-white finds are soft towelling and monogrammed in red cross-stitch - just in case a guest absent-mindedly packed one away in her bag! I've got 2 pairs and you can see the Ebay listing here. Sorry - the sweet little towel rack isn't for sale - yet...
