Arundel Eccentrics Antiques
If you are one of our US readers,
how was your Thanksgiving?
I hope that you had a happy day.
Or does it last for several days?
I've never been lucky
enough to be in the States
for Thanksgiving so its
an unknown to me.
Maybe one day.
We had a great gift evening in our
antiques warehouse on Friday.
We filled the warehouse with some gorgeous gifts.
|these trays were a great find...like old fruit crates|
My friend Allie helped me set up the smalls.
Nass and the men had set up all the furniture.
It was like the lull before the storm. Ha ha
I take the photos and have the cards printed locally.
My lovely chum Bridge
helped me with food.
The wine was bought...........
.........and at five on the
dot the first guests arrived.....
and fortunately just kept arriving.........
Thank you so much to everyone
who came along
and helped to make
it such a fantastic evening.
I was thrilled.
We entertained loads of locals
and also friends who had
travelled a distance.
All my friends from the
creative writing group I meet with....
they were out in force.
Some of the antique trade who
knew we were there,
thought we only dealt
in painted furniture.
So they were pleased
to see the many other antique pieces we have.
as you can see.....we do a whole
lot more than painted and decoupage work.
We welcome trade buyers at any time.
Many of our regular trade buyers travel a long way, time and time again, from the US.
Our trade prices are extremely competitive.
|great idea for a lamp hey?|
and when we do painted...
.....its not just a load of shabby chic.
It's a lot more interesting than that.....
|Tartan Chest of Drawers|
|Vintage school lab stools given a new lease of life.|
We find vintage bowls and buckets
and we paint and decorate with gilt and decoupage
If you are local and would like to come along to any future events just email us.
Victorian Chests of Drawers.
So now the evening has been done I need to concentrate
on getting back to decoupage.
These are our botanical Victorian Chests.
We source 19th century items of furniture.
Chests of Drawers, Bamboo, Screens.......
and we paint and decorate them in our own inimitable style............
We use all 19th century images
So,now with our evening done,
I have a pile of bamboo tables
waiting to be worked on.
The next event will be
next Saturday in Arundel.
Arundel by Candlelight.
The whole town will be buzzing.
If you've never been before,
you would be in for a surprise.
We will have a stand opposite the Swan Hotel
in Arundel High Street and will also be open all day in our warehouse.
Have a great Sunday
