Based in Warrington, Cheshire, we are a family run business operating from an industrial setting on the banks of the River Mersey. Having started out sourcing items for our own home, a hobby quickly turned into a passion and led us to where we are today.

After dealing part time for a few years, Sven left his job in engineering to pursue our venture full time.

We celebrate our eclectic mix of stock, rarely having a uniformed showroom. We pride ourselves on a wide range of unusual and interesting items and we are always on the hunt for new and exciting pieces. We are lucky to be based in the North of England and utilise the industrial heritage of the area, but we are keen to source stock from all backgrounds.

Our showroom currently opens each Saturday and Sunday 10am – 4pm. Appointment only Monday to Friday.

We hope you enjoy our collection as much as we do, please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information.
