new in store...Gustavian dining chairs and Indian juggling batons

These chairs are wonderfully elegant with their high backs and cut out detail. The seats have been reupholstered in a neutral linen. They date to early 20th century.
These Indian juggling clubs have been stained a deep red and decorated with gilt highlights. We have never had any quite like these. I would think they date to late 19th century.
This industrial butcher's shelf was in the garden room previously and we have just moved it out into the main hall. It has more space now and looks great. I love the industrial wheels at the bottom. It would work well in a kitchen for stacks of white china or in a lounge room for stacks of books.


  1. Beautiful chairs !!.......and i like that cabinet !!....lovely....enjoy your christmas week darling..........love love love Ria....

  2. Re your comment today. No you are not too early. Not many people linking at the moment because of being busy with Christmas. A lot of people have assured me they will link up next year. Can't wait to open my Christmas present with my new cushion. Lovely to have you has my blogging neighbour. Cheers Charmaine

  3. Hi Tammy,

    I have enjoyed looking at your pictures today of what you have in your store. I only wish I lived a lot closer!! I love the patina on the two Indian juggling clubs. I noticed in your last picture the hat stands with the metal support stands. I didn't realise you had so many!!

    I have a friend who has a couple in dark wood with chunky wooden bases. They are simply divine and everytime I see them I feel like grabbing both of them and running away with them!!!! Have you ever had the hat stands with the wooden bases?

    As always, thanks for sharing, hope you've had a great day and will call in again soon.

    Take care

  5. We do have some hat stands with wooden bases. I will add some pics to a post, but it won't be until next week. Have a good week!
