We recently decided to upgrade our space in Picture House Antiques from a cabinet to a room-sized pitch. It will enable us to sell a much wider variety of items. It’s our usual mix of mid-century modern, handmade objects and rustic antiques.
There’s enamelware, ceramics, glass and fabrics… we’ve had some fantastic vintage posters framed for the walls… there are clocks, lighting and larger pieces of furniture.
It’s been quite a busy week – there are slideshows below charting the move.
(Items cluttering up our lounge, waiting to go)
(boxes to unpack, shelves to put up & pictures to hang)
(More tweaking will surely be done, but we’re happy with the result so far)
We were having our end of day glass of wine with some amazing cheese, wondering what to write for this week’s blog post… why not talk about cheese? We do love a bit of cheese in this house!
Of course you need something to store it in…
…to cut it on…
…and to serve it upon
Todmorden now has its own cheese-maker called Pextenement Cheese Co. They produce a lovely cheese called East Lee Soft – it’s absolutely perfect with crackers or oatcakes. We’re looking forward to trying the cheddar and Camembert-style cheeses they’re currently developing.
We’re quite well served with cheese retailers in our area. Special mention must go to The Cheese Place in Haworth. It’s about half an hour’s drive away, but well worth the trip. Friendly, knowledgeable owners – and great cheese.
So if we’re ever undecided as to which direction to head out… we think of those wise words from Wallace – “Gromit, that’s it… cheese… we’ll go somewhere where there’s cheese!”
