I've been shopping and I've found some treasure for you! All available at 53 Exmouth Market today. Until it's gone that is: when it's gone it's gone.
Got a load of those French school stamps in: I love French school stuff, always so attractive. Look at the range of fruit and veg they learn as nippers too: artichokes and asparagus. Tres Francais.
Tiny factory is my favourite.
Bottle brushes! Very appealing things.
A bunch of brushes beats a bunch of flowers any day.
Their construction is so simple but satisfying.
Dirtiest great bottle of ink I ever saw! Yessss. We'll never run out.
These cheese presses really please me: I love the wonky holes and little legs. You could use them as a fruit bowl or for your cutlery too. Beauties.
And just when I think I've got over enamel it comes back to bite me: I mean, will you look at these bowls!? Nasty seductive little beasts.
New watering can for the shop: so we can do everything in an idyllic manner, including plant watering.
You're meant to put candles inside these lanterns but I really couldn't recommend it: maybe just hang them up as they are and admire their stripes. Tres jolie.
This kind of pottery gets me every time: it is so breakable though. This one survived the journey home, unfortunately it's twin didn't.
These little glasses are called penny licks. You'd have one served to you with a blob of ice cream in the top (I'm guessing it cost a penny) - then you'd lick it off and hand it back. Imagine that being your weekend treat. I can shove a whole Vienetta in my gob sideways and still feel peckish.
These flat enamel shades are simple and functional (and cheap) - I usually see them in dark green but was very smitten with this nice pea green variation. We have quite a few in stock if you fancy a set too.
And finally: nice French botanical posters. A stupid buy because they're massive and the shop is so tiny. If you like them please come buy one so we can move around again - thanks!See you down here soon.
