After 5 years of trading and expanding my store it now fills the living space of the Old Postmaster's House, just off the Square in the famous Wine Village of Martinborough.
It is a great space for a Second Hand, Antiques and Collectables store - from the vast array of kitchenalia in the original 1950's kitchen, to crystal and china displayed in cabinets in the old dining room. The bedrooms are full of smaller items from retro pottery, nik naks to costume, ornaments and books.
Costume jewellery and sewing items are a love of mine and of course have pride of place in the cosy living room with the fireplace and also french doors opening onto the generous deck where there are tables, chairs and magazines for the lesser enthusiast to relax while friends browse.

Thanks to those customer's who have found us and their support and encouragement.
Customer's love it...
"This is the best shop we have seen during our holiday"
"It is like visiting some-ones home where everything is for sale!"
"It has been a lovely journey down memory lane"
This is such a good idea, a house that's like a shop - I will tell my friends" (Actually it is a shop that's like a house!)
"I visit every time I come to town and there is always something new"

Why buy new when there are brilliant quality second hand options for every room in your home?

So, now to my new blog where I will showcase items that I love and hopefully bring back memories of yesteryear and give great decorator or collector ideas for the homes of today. Something for everyone's budget. So, friends, collectors, vintage enthusiasts, interior designers, browsers and those just looking for a special item - welcome! Look out for "Yesterday's items Today" posts.

The large deck and the main entrance to the shop - welcome!
