Been a busy week
I pulled my friend Allie in to help me.
Butterflies and fish decoupage all week.
Up to our eyeballs in gilt and paint.
Until our brains boggled.
Actually, it was Allie I started out with 20 odd years ago in the same warehouse
We briefly had this shop...now William Hill.
We were just teaching ourselves to paint and decorate furniture.
From there to
|That's my son Jay and I outside Liberty ...that little boy is now 40!|
anyway ...we made the transition in just about 20 years!
At the moment you will find a small collection of our pieces around the atrium in the London store.
This huge room is their Christmas room from September onwards.
Our decoupage 19th century chests are quite mad.
But they are surprisingly popular
The first one we ever did?
yep...wound up in one of the most prestigious interior magazines on the planet.
I know...crazy hey?
and ever since they have been spotted in magazines over here
One of our gilt cabinets
Spirit Of Christmas
The date is set for our ever popular open evening at the warehouse.
It's always in the diary of locals who come along every year.
Numbers are swelling by the year , so you may want to make an early start.
We open at 5pm.
Glass of something.
English and French antique collection.
Arundel cards, notebooks, diaries and Christmas wrap
but never fear if you miss this event
You can find us in Arundel High Street on

I'm already on a written warning......
