rainy market


We have just got back from the market, which was absolutely nackering...but extreamly good fun at the same time! It was cold, dark and raining when we arrived at 6.30am but definitely worth it!


We were looking for: display items for the shop, cabinets, and kitchen table for the flat, a bench for the flat, garden chairs and anything else that caught our eyes.
We found a nice kitchen table for £50 and left it with the dealer to collect later (as per usual)...later on whilst looking around, we saw exactly the same table at another stall! Thinking there can't be more than one pea green kitchen tables, we went back to the dealer and asked where our table was. Turns out he sold it! Twice! We were completely pissed-off and felt a bit diddled. He did give us back our money but we couldn't find another table under £100...I was fuming angry.
Anyway, good old Nao thought it might be worth a try to talk to the other dealer with our table and explain what happened....both sticking out our bottom lips and looking upset. They offered it to us for £60. So we ended up buying it twice with a £10 loss! Booooo! But it was still mega cheap for a nice french table, I'll show you a picture later...
What a long story that was, sorry!


We bought so much furniture! It was a tight squeeze in the car. We found some lovely metal display stands for the shop, a small glass cabinet and plant stands.
For the flat we bought THE kitchen table, an old work bench to use in our flat, some small shelves, two Ercol kitchen chairs, a folding table and a stool. The basket you see poking out, is going to be the bin for our shed! £2, cheaper than Ikea!


We also found a 1960 edition of This is Paris, it so nice to have an old one, and we are thinking to be a This is London old copy too!


I loved these French linen huge napkins, so I bought three!

So we didn't buy many small items in the end ( I have too many of those as it is!)
...and i will take some pictures of the furniture we bought, when the sun comes out, as it was too dark to get any photos this morning!

Mean while, at work we have a new style 4mm Rose cut diamond and platinum ring, with hand milled edge...



Which will be available to order from our new London RUST shop soon!

...and our renovations of the new studio is slow (we are doing it after work and on weekends) but the transformation is going well! we are half way through laying the flooring now.
