But there aren't many places out there where you can go to buy affordable 'young' antiques that are in good nick.... until now!
There is a new shop opening in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh very soon which will specialise in vintage, quirky (+ just plain beautiful!) furniture and home ware. But for those pieces that do need a few touch ups, or if a customer would like a piece to be brought up to date with colours to match their decor, I will be a recommended restorer!
I have already been given a few Tippi pieces to redesign ahead of the shop's opening, including this wonderfully retro 1950s kitchen cabinet! I'm off paint shopping for it tomorrow!
I am so excited by this opportunity- can't wait for Tippi to be open! .... The shop is named after the owner Anna's gorgeous little terrier who gives the best cuddles! Between the furniture and Tippi herself, I think I'll be making myself a permanent fixture there :)
'Like' Tippi on Facebook to be kept in the loop on the shop's opening : www.facebook.com/TippiUK
And you'll be able to visit in a few short weeks here:
