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 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...


  1. You have the most wonderful French treasures!
    The story of the wedding cake topper is so sweet... so its an added bonus!


  2. Thanks Debbie - that's very kind of you to say so! Carol x
