As some of you may know we have finally managed to join the Northcote Road Antiques Market after a long long wait (longer than an allotment I bet).
Now our stall is set up I can browse some of my fellow stallholder’s beautiful finds.
There is a real mix of antiques. One of my favourite stalls is the silverware. I do love a dining table dressed formally for dinner. These bundles of separate knives, forks and spoons are an inexpensive way to make your own canteen of cutlery. Or you could supplement your existing cutlery with some fish knives or dinky cake spoons.
I quite fancy some boned handled knives like these.
Vintage linens are a thoughtful wedding gift, especially now dowry chests are a dim and distant memory.
Solid silver sugar shakers, thimbles and the like are good christening present fodder.
For wine lovers you cannot beat a decanter. Even a cheap bottle of plonk looks and tastes better when decanted into a crystal vessel.
I hope this whets your appetite to come and browse. Come upstairs too so you do not miss Colporter.
