We stayed with Richs parents in North Shropshire, which seems to be a breeding group for secondhand shops, lots of lovely places selling furnture for very good prices. It also seems to be one of those places that hasnt quite got into the 50s/60s revival thing. Down here in the South West genuine retro furntire will set you back a small fortune, which most of the time knocks Rich and I out of the running leaving us to window shop in case we win the lottery!
So anyway, Richs Mum took us to a great little shop/barn/warehouse selling old furniture and up stairs tucked in a corner we found two peices we had been looking for. The first was a little 1960s glass fronted cabinet and to prove that is had to come home with us it was a corner cupboard. I have been wanted to replace the corner pine dresser we have and now I can!
Unfortunately we have had to leave both of these finds up in Shropshire as our car was so packed! Also I now need to sell the current furniture to make room for this lot! So anyone coming down from Shropshire in the next month will be asked to lug our finds with them once again. I think we might been to invest in a trailer at this rate!
