Look after the Pennies

Storing your shrapnel down the back of the sofa? Bored of that out-sized Bells Whisky bottle which is half-full of coins on the mantelpiece? Not got much of the folding stuff, but a pocket full of pennies...?

Let us look after your hard earned cash.  Pristine Carlton Ware late 1960s/early 1970s money boxes

A proliferation of beautiful backsides!  All from the reverse of Midwinter plates and contain a lovely mix of font, style and imagery.

Tomado Ketchup

Tomado shelving systems from the Netherlands are an ideal platform for displaying a variety of decorative items: functional and colourful, but adequately reserved to allow the pieces to be the main attraction.  I pretty much threw these items at one...and it looks alright (doesn't it?)

What you can see:
Top shelf:  a figure by Alexander Girard (modern reissue) / Figgo Flint pitcher from Norway
Middle shelf: a Portmerion lidded jar by Susan Williams-Ellis / a Keramik vase
Bottow shelf: a souvenir from the Berlin Jewish museum / an Italian Bitossi Hippo

Feast on This

Thanks to all who came, saw or even bought from my stall on Sunday at the West Norwood Feast.  Here are some shots from the stall. Unfortunately I didn't manage to see many any other stalls, but other traders were able to hand over some useful tips, thoughts, etc.  Feedback on my wares was really good.  All eyes next on the Southbank Vintage festival in late July.  More of which later...
