Items with a difference..

Tony has been on a few successful hunts and brought some great items back. We have a wide variety of tables large and small from Victorian farmhouse kitchen,  to more formal dining tables and chairs, and even a bespoke Elm refectory table.  Also to mention, a lovely round Indian ‘drum’ chest of drawers made of indigenous Sheesham wood  with  very beautiful grain patterns.  New items always appear under‘latest stock’ via our website

As lovely as all these items are of course, Tony never fails to bring back something quite out of the ordinary and in this case it falls into very boyish territory with an elaborate statue of 'Predator' ...Not  perhaps everyone’s cup of tea, however this Predator statue is a great handmade work of art,  put together entirely from motor bike parts and (we think) fantastic..

Shabby Chic: Pretty Plates

There are some gorgeous plates and other ceramics hidden in corners of the Emporium, I had to bring them out, wash off the dust and set them out on display.   I particulary like the milk glass plates with 'forget me not' and lattice edge. They have some age cracks, but I think it adds to the shabby chic charm.
