Today a got a retro wardrobe moved into the shop. Im kind of getting addicted to buying old furniture but i need to calm down as i am seriously running out of space to put everything!
Anyway this wardrobe was so retro and unusual i just had to get it. As it only came today it is looking pretty bare and needs jam packing full of cool stuff but i just had to share a picture of it :)

Well it looks like i had forgotten about my blog for a couple of days or weeks.... i don't know i've lost track.
Anyway im here now! So i thought i'd share with you some new additions to my shop in The Corner Emporium shop.
In my last post i had just got a lovely new typewriter in a beautiful black case. I totally wanted to keep it for myself and was contemplating taking the price tag off and swapping it for a 'display only sign'. The typewriter had only been in the shop 3 days and it was snapped up by a student from CCAD who loved it equally as much as i did, so i had to let it go. At least it was going to a good home and was going to get some use (the girl was using it in one of her college projects) and i suppose if i had taken it home it would have just sat on my desk. But don't be sad because there are 2, yes 2!!! new typewriters in the shop.
I just finished making up this cushion and put it out on display this afternoon. The bicyle is screen printed onto a thick pink linen and patterned fabrics appliqued on.
Since everyone has been asking to buy the bunting i have for decoration around the shop and people always want to buy the piles of fabric i have folded on my shelves i decided to kill two birds with one stone and have made some of my very own bunting for sale!
So if you are local or in the area make sure you come down to The Corner Emporium and have a look. There is not only my shop there, The Corner Emporium showcases 9 businesses ranging from arts & crafts to baby clothes and even fudge!
And even if you have been down before you should come back as there is always new stock arriving/being made.
