Recently I've moved into a larger room and although it's still quite cluttered, it means I've been able to put more stock in and get a half decent photograph. There's still no natural light, but I have a room all to myself with it's own doorway. It's looking much more how I want it now, though there are still a few finishing touches to go.
I haven't gone for any particular style, just a mixture of bits and pieces - vintage, country style and shabby chic, that I hope customers will like. It's going well and I pop in once a week to add stock and have a bit of a tidy up - customers cannot always be relied upon to leave things as they find them ;-). It's been keeping me busy for the last few months but I'm really enjoying it.
These pics are all from my unit - the other units are quite a mixture, if visiting you need to allow time for a good look around as there are two floors and many rooms. Of course, when I visit my unit a can't resist a look around the others, here are some things I have bought from there for myself:
Pretty perspex box, great for displaying sparklies.
Plus these two sparklies:
These cute steps which I showed a little while back.
A complete album of Wills Cigarettes Film Stars cards from the 30s.
If you are thinking about visiting Lechlade, there are three other antique shops/centres, a few gift shops and the famous Christmas shop, plus you can dine by the river and take a walk along the Thames. I'll post more about it another time.
The Antiques Arcade is on the High Street, at the junction of the A417 and A361, click here for a map. They have a website but the link is broken at the time of writing, I've put the link anyway as it might sort itself out. The arcade is open 7 days a week, 10am to 5pm.
I do hope you'll pay a visit :-)
As a result, I'm afraid my webshop has become rather neglected. I do have some pretties put away though and hope to have an update before very long.
