Engineering blueprints

Do we have some amazing vintage items in store for you! Most recently we have sourced a company that has brought in engineering blueprints from a manufactory in Lyon, France. Most of the plans are c1920-1940s. They are simply amazing.

Here's a close-up of how we have used several of the blueprints on a panel in the shop:

And here's another image of the blueprint panel in the steampunk corner. This picture also showcases our fantastic industrial chairs (more colours in stock)and vintage silk bobbins:

We also have a bit of an equestrian theme in the shop at the moment. We have riding helmets, tiny horse figurines, ceramic horse busts and my favourite, show ribbons:

Plus, look at this amazing luggage collection at the base of a coffin lantern on a Miller tripod (now SOLD). We just love vintage travel items as they evoke thoughts of journeys to far off lands...

Please remember, we are open in June on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, 10am to 5pm.

Our 1 Year Anniversary & Trading Days in June

A few items of note today:

Did you know that Saturday 16 June will be the manufactory's first anniversary? How incredible this past year has been. A special thanks goes out to all our regular customers, and to all the new ones we are still meeting each and every day.

And on another good note, our Autumn newsletter is nearly ready. Stay tuned, as it should hit your in-box or mail box very soon. Our mailing list has grown to nearly 200 now, so that's also a great effort!

During the cooler months of June and July, we will be taking the opportunity to spruce up the manufactory and search out some great pieces just for you. This means that our usual trading days of Tuesday to Saturday will not be so, well, usual.

During June, we will be trading on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm. Stay tuned for July's trading days...

We hope you all have a great week and keep warm.
