It is known in the antiques trade that there are certain, ALMOST MYTHICAL individuals who have a sixth sense for finding special antiques and an ability to tell the genuine from the fake. Someone with such ability is referred to as a Divvy.
We know our own Divvy in England - a friend of 40 years. He has a warehouse full of treasures, some of which you couldn't imagine the stories behind.
We ask our friend the Divvy to send us items for us to incorporate into our visual merchandising for our brand. We never know what we are going to get. That is for the Divvy to know and for us to find out!
When you create something of lasting value, you put a little bit of your soul into it. People recognize when something has a soul, it becomes special. And over the years people have come to us for those special things.
You can always visit us in Hastings to see these treasures first hand. But if you are not able to come to us, you can shop online in our Online Shop.
Victorian Chest of Drawers with Butterfly Decoupage c. 1800s
Get something over 100 years old
Decoupage it with care
Spend hours making it look magnificent
Transform from old and a little frayed
into something that could last another 100 years
If you like furniture
If you like craftsmanship
If you could be trusted to pass it along to the next generation
Then it is yours
