Pipes, Pipes and MORE Smoking Pipes!!

Well February is nearly gone and life seems
 to be passing by very quickly!

For all the Pipe collectors I have some rather nice and 
unusual pipes in store now.

This is a collection gathered by a relatively young man who enthusiastically
 sought out the pipes and the right books to guide him along the way.

There is approximately 50 Pipes and some great
 Pipe Books on offer - well worth a visit!

Frantic February !!!

Things are rather hectic in our household at the moment.....
might be something to do with Mackenzie starting high school
or the fact that Soccer Season is nearly upon us....

Anyhow I have some new interesting bits in store now....

Lovely Iron House Sign - Roslyn 
the numbers can be removed in need....

Enid Gilchrist is somewhat of a legend in the 50's 
for producing pattern books for boys and girls.....

 for that avid sewer.....

This is a special edition of the Illustrated London News
for the Exhibition - dated May 12, 1951.

Lovely Australian made Rocking Horse or Bouncer
