Located in London, I also stumbled upon this adorable little gem. From the moment I passed this darling little house, I knew I had to stop in. The outside was stuffed to gills with old furniture, pieces of pottery, even complete with a pink painted bathtub on the front lawn. *Swoon* As I walked through the front door, I could smell the scent of "vintage" in the air. Ahhh. "I'm in my element." I told my husband. I was even met at the door by a precocious three year old (the granddaughter of the owner) who was craning her neck on an antique winged backed chair to watch a train pass by outside. I thought to myself, how superbly perfect.
The entire house was filled from top to bottom with antique cut glass chandeliers, depression glasses, carnival glass, elegantly framed pictures, vintage chenille bedspreads, handkerchiefs, plush antique ottomans. My goodness. I could go on and on. Every where I stepped I saw something that I adored, and just had to at least touch. From leopard overcoats, to a sequined pill box hat, I was completely in love. (I will have to go back without my husband, he just doesn't understand my love for vintage clothing.)
As I browsed through this adorable little house, I was amazed at what I saw. This place has everything! Literally, everything! beautiful evening clutches,china by the set, hand made vintage aprons,chintz furniture, and even gently worn vintage children's clothing. I was also delighted to find out that Ms. Spurlock is friends with my Aunt Karen and Uncle Butch, from Manchester, and that my Uncle is frequent customer, buying gifts for his wife.I can certainly see why, everything is truly lovely.
If you are ever in the London area, I would suggest you stop in and give this place a go. Looking is the best part and it's places like this where you truly never know what you'll come out with. For all the MEN who are reading this, the ladies in your life would appreciate a vintage trinket, trust me. Kyle buys me antiques a lot for special occasions, and I would always rather have something beautiful and vintage as opposed to something new. I am a romantic, and as usual, I romanticize everything in my life, right down to my antique sterling silver cigarette case that was a "just because" present nearly three years ago. Take my word for it fellas, you come home with an antique brooch, or pair of earrings, you'll be in good shape.
I ended up leaving with a beautiful (and unique) wool fancy dress coat with a fur collar. I paid 25 bucks for it. I love it, and I plan to wear it to church with all my nice dresses---even if my husband says it's "just a tad bit too green".
