From my first job as a student porter at Christie’s South Kensington in London I have loved all things old and unique.
I am based in the Vale of Belvoir and take great pleasure in scouring my neighbourhood and beyond, including the world-famous Newark Antiques Fair and numerous local auction houses to hand-pick a range of interesting and affordable vintage treasures – from Georgian glassware to art-deco silver, decorative porcelain and other intriguing curiosities and objets d’art, the likes of which you cannot find on the high street.
I believe that vintage items are a unique combination of quality and style; things with a patina of age, but made in the days before throwaway product design, things with a history and a character.
I also believe that these beautiful things should be used and enjoyed and much of my time is taken up with finding new and innovative ways to “upcycle” – even if that only means using a cut glass decanter for water at a guest bedside, a lusterware jug for flowers or a Georgian ice plate for Maltesers on the coffee tray!
