Groovy Week!

"Groovy Week" banner

In an average week’s sourcing, we buy items from many eras – from antique rustic stools to modernist stainless steel candle holders.

However, for some reason this week’s purchases have all been very 1950s/60s.

As you can see from the photos – atomic, flower power and psychedelic designs are very much in evidence – with some bold colours & great patterns.

It’s hard to pick favourites, but the metal waste paper basket by Worcester Ware and the Gaytime measuring jug by Lord Nelson Pottery are outstanding. Other makers include Jie Gantofta for the tea/sugar jars, Kirkham Pottery for the egg cups and English Ironstone Pottery for the bull steak plates.

    That gorgeous wastepaper bin reminds me a lot of the Hostess Dolly Days pattern. What a great find! Love that tin too.

      Hi Emma,

      Yes, we thought it was very Dolly Days too! How did your house move go? All settled in?

    OMG, Coppit. I spent loads of time as a child playing Coppit at my Grandmothers. So lovely to have the memories flooding back.
