New stock..... new feel to the shop!

May has brought with it cool nights and lovely winter days.
This morning it was foggy in town and I wondered if I would
 ever see the sky but by lunchtime we had beautiful blue clear sky!
Tonight we are off to see the Van Diemen Rollers.....
Ever heard of them?
They are a group of women who compete in Roller Derby!
So we are off to Westbury to see them race.
Should be a great night - when you get your tickets they tell you
 to rug up, bring a blanket and make sure you get there early
 otherwise you may have to sit in suicide corner!

Anyhow back to business....

This lovely Rocking Horse is from the 40's/50's and has been well loved.
His structure is timber, covered in hide and is straw filled.

Victorian Burr Walnut Dressing Table - absolutely gorgeous!

Art Deco Drinks Trolley

Rosewood Inlaid Coal Scuttle with a Porcelain Handled Shovel.
Lovely original condition, nice patina.

Mahogany Barley Twist, Marble Top Toilet Mirror

I found this Library Ladder the other day and it caught
 my eye because it was so rustic but had a nice feel to it.
I will use it for display - it really isn't strong enough to
use as a ladder.

This Tin Hat Box is gorgeous. It is rather large - although
it doesn't really show that in this photo.

This photo is of our front room, but I really wanted to show you
the new table which is a stunner!
It has a Kauri Pine top and a Tasmanian Blackwood base.
The legs are a great shape and it has 3 drawers.
