When we were in England last year, we made an effort to find some (sort of) affordable garden antiques. They just arrived ! We unpacked the 40′ container in just over a day. wow – what a treasure trove ! On the first day of our trip, we went to the Battersea Antiques Fair in London ,bought nothing, but met a few dealers we liked. Quite a few of our new goodies came from Ireland and France as well. Many of the pieces are huge and heavy, I don’t expect them to fly off the shelves….
I am nuts about these French laundry tubs !! I have always wanted one (or four), ever since first seeing them in Anthropologie stores in the U.S. I cannot wait to plant a few with Olive trees this summer…..
A small zinc-topped ‘florist’s table’ was a must buy for me. It was in a fantastic antique shop in the Cotswolds area of England. One of my favourite aspects of running a garden centre is doing the displays. These pieces are going to be very inspiring ,just in time for the busy Spring season !
This cute cupboard originally came from Sweden. It is very unusual, with a non-functioning clock built into it. It was too beautiful to leave behind.
