And there's PLENTY more!

We've just been going through folders of pictures and pulling out things at random, don't forget the idea is for you to feel like you're walking through some sort of junkyard-bazaar-op shop-recycling-yard-garage sale!

You never know what to expect, but you can be assured that it will be super fun! Enjoy...

Old telephones are exceptional and this one is no exception! Black Bakelite, solid, American Made, probably in the 40's or 50's. So much style!

Elson vintage Measuring Tape. Metres upon metres!

Gold golf club bottle opener, this thing is weighty and so cool whether you're a golfer or not, we've barely swung a club and we're psyched on it! Think paper weight, or maybe a bottle opener like it was intended!

We're not sure what it is yet, but old beaten up scissors are awesome. Sometimes they're painted, most of the time they're rusted and they come in so so many cool shapes, sizes and designs. One thing is for sure, they look unreal when there are a heap of them together, the more the better!

Johnson's Paste Wax large tin. For those who wondered, 8 Pounds = 3.2kg, so the tin is a pretty good size, perfect for storing random stuff like paint brushes, cooking utensils or umbrellas by the door.

Blackies English Classics - 'Lady of the Lake' poem books, broken up into canto's which are like sections or divisions in a long form poem, these books look amazing, they have so much character.

This is a very unique and interesting piece, it's the 1920 Medical Annual, used to advertise all sorts of treatments and medical instruments to doctors, and it' covers every possible thing that was happening medically at the time so you can imagine what's inside!

We love this! A pineapple jug, probably good for pouring Pineapple Juice, or something similar. Whatever you pour from it your guests will be tasting Pineapple Juice, that's for sure!

A beautiful little portrait wall ornament, there are two in the set and they look so nice in the way they've weathered and foxed, just awesome!

This is special! It's an original illustration of a young man which we think may have been a gift from the illustrator to the sitter? Absolutely beautifully aged and would look amazing in a deep-box white frame, yep nice!

Simple, two of our favourite things; Bell Jars and Twine, together in perfect harmony! For no other reason apart from that they look good together.

Check back soon!

With much love,
