new in store...industrial scales, linen cushions, French chopping block and more!

Vintage chrome grocer's (or trade) scales on a marble base, made by Salter. I would think these would date to around the 1930's. They would look great in a cafe or a produce store.
Detail of the face of the scales. I love the red marker! They will weigh up to 30 pounds.
A collection of vintage wooden decoy ducks. They are lovely and pale in colour, one has a bit of green painted detail, the others are plain.
This industrial bottle carrier has been buried in our back storeroom for a little while. I uncovered it today and it is now out in the store on the wine cage.
This is a very chunky (and heavy) vintage French chopping block. It dates to around 1940. It has signs of a little use, but it is perfectly ready to be chopped on again!
French double handled herb choppers. I love the feel of the handles, they are so smooth with wear. I can imagine the French kitchens that these were used within and the comforting meals they helped to prepare.
Part of our latest range of cushions are these linen cushions with bird motifs. More cushion images to come!
And my favourite find of the week are these gorgeous little child's shoe lasts. The paler pair are stamped "Judi" which relates to the name of the design. Both pairs are a small size 5. How cute!
