something special

Mass produced mirrors are everywhere but it's only when you see the real thing that you can begin to understand how exquisite the hand crafted piece can be. Custom gilded frames, handbuilt mirrors, beautifully archival framed antique prints.

New in store

Don't you just love galvanised tin? Industrial on one hand and country chic on the other. Just in store a stylishly useful (as if you'd need an excuse to buy them) tin range. Trays to die for. These are HUGE! Tins of all types. Milk churns and a cute string dispenser. Great Christmas presents in themselves or fill the tins with goodies. I can see the trays laden with food as part of your Christmas buffet. One customer even suggested filled with a bed of ice and piled with prawns. I love that idea.

P.S. I just wanted to say thanks to Anita from Fun and VJs and Katherine from The Old Boathouse for stopping by on Thursday with Jo from Desire to Inspire. You girls are so much fun! I promise I won't tell your husbands what you bought ;)

Nothing stays the same

That's the best part. I find the most wonderful pieces from overseas and closer to home, pop them in the shop, merchandise and before we can stand back and admire our work they have walked out the door with their new owner. Thought you'd like to see the changes in store over the past few weeks.

You'll find us at, 17C Ellenborough Street, Ipswich Central.
