The Rare and the Unusual.....

We have lots of fun researching the items that come in....

Some are weird, some are wacky and we have lots 
that are just plain ugly but unusual.

It is amazing what you can learn about a piece when you 
search Google!

Anyhow here are a few items suitable for 
the hard to buy for, or the person who has everything!

Old Cast Iron Press .... can be 
used for flowers or books or 
could be an unusual doorstop!

Now this 1945s game is Australian, made by M & L Plastics
of Melbourne - called Race Play.
It is rare and can be found in the Queen Victoria Museum
in Melbourne. 
The idea is to pull all the horses out and then turn the 
handle to bring them back in - first in wins.....
There is Phar Lap, Windbag, Carbine, Bernborough, 
Peter Pan, Shannon and Flight.
It is made of Bakelite and as you can see there is
 1 Blue horse, 2 Red, 2 Black, 2 Green and a Brown.
Four of them have docked tails due to the passage of time 
and the original box is a little worse for wear 
but the set is in working order and great for the avid collector.

This is an old unusual Builders Chalk line - 
carved with Frog, Lizard and Bull.....

Anyhow we hope you are having a great week!

We are all tizzied up and ready for the holiday rush!

I can be quite creative when I put my mind to it....
so when I spotted some Deer antlers I bought the lot 
with decorating the shop in mind.... and after some 
tizzying with calico
Here is one of the pairs....

Would look great hanging from the mantle over a fireplace.
I have three of these in different sizes
and 5 singles.....

I also got my sewing arm on and, after seeing Judes bunting
I learnt how to make them with the easy step by step guide 
thanks Josie Crafter!
So with the help (or hinderance) of my 12 year old son, Mackenzie
 (he had to do the sewing machine pedal)
I made two lots of 5 metres for the shop windows.

Here is the finished product with a set of antlers....

And the other window..... sorry for the glare!

Back to tempting you now.... here is 
a lovely Wembley Ware Lobster Dish..... 
unusual in the green.

Westminster Old English Roses Milk Jug, Sugar Bowl
and Cake Plate

Royal Winton Gravy Boat and Apple Sauce Dish.....

Stuart Crystal Water Jug and Glass set - with the 
original stickers.... doesn't look like its been used....

Three Sandland Ware pieces, Milk Jug & Sugar Bowl
and Pin Dish.....

22 carat Milk Jug & Sugar Bowl set - as new

Anyhow I hope you have a great week!
Pop into the shop and have a closer look when you can.
