Something old, Something new...

Some of my regular customers will know our website is being rebuilt, if you are looking for something particular please contact us and we will let you know if we can help.

It's been a busy year, we moved from London to Norfolk and the business seems to be evolving along with the new lifestyle.

We still stock vintage and antique items as well as brand new gifts and novelties and we are currently looking at some exciting new lines so watch this space!

The website now has clipper lighters back in stock and we hope to get many more designs in soon, they were always popular small gift items and the range of designs ensures there's something for everyone.

On ebay at the moment we have a fascinating rare photo album full of photos from the 1950's & 1960's
