... wow what a great couple of days, loads of fun with the girls, huge thanks to MLH (My Lovely Husband) who provided muscle, sales technique, driving, a sense of humour and a great line in lattes.
We virtually sold out of all the furniture we took and people were almost mugging me for the vintage printers' trays I took as an afterthought - only one left! As ever, hard work but tons of fun, and a great boost to my confidence that people like my ideas enough to part with hard cash for them!

...I walked into one of my favourite antique shops this weekend and the first thing I saw was...ta dah!... this fabulous antique corset. It's handmade in the most beautiful peachy cream silk with tulle and tiny pearl beads. This first shot is me being arty by antiqueing it and fading the colours out...
...this is a more realistic idea of the colour. I knew I wanted it just to hang on the wall and look at every day! It's absolutely exquisite and makes a lovely focal point at the end of my antique French bed...

Masses of one-off handmade, vintage and, above all, affordable gifts, homewares, shabby chic and rustic furniture.
