About me

Introduction For the shop we are a team which is quite practical. Michael is our electrician (qualified), carpenter, metalworker, driver, fetcher & carrier. Trixie who has been in the "antiques" business for many years and after a break has come back to vintage & antiques. Trixie loves sourcing the stock & has an eye for the unusual. We travel far and wide to source our stock and take time and pride in presenting items that we would wish to keep for ourselves, but are happy to share with like minded people. I forgot Florence(you will see her on my blog) and old scruffy terrier who we rescued and have loved ever since!
