Crest

A new start

A new start can refer to so much of what the antiques trade is all about- upcycle, reclaim, and salvage.

And also refer to my website which has not had the attention it should have had BUT I’m back with new stock, a revamped website and a lovely venue to view antiques and decorative items I have for sale. I will be based just outside Lincoln on the A15 with easy access for viewing  

One of my greatest loves in this business is the “before and after”  - buying items that need upholstering. It gives me the opportunity to look at Interiors trends and enjoy choosing fabrics that are of the moment 

I recently bought a pair of period fuetuele 1780 needing a great deal of TLC After cleaning the frame to expose the original paint the chairs were upholstered in dark grey linen fabric with self piping Fabulouse

“Things are no moment in themselves, only their influence upon our lives is important. They are a means to an end and that end is richness of life.”
