There’s many names I could happily go with. I’m a lover of everything green and growing, I’m an explorer of things old and forgotten, I’m a self-confessed cat momma. But when it comes to home and interior decor, above everything I’m an antique obsessive. Flea markets, car boot sales, the antiques category of E-bay, even Depop sometimes. I’m on it like Gromit. Despite my old-crap-hoarding-disorder, I am quite aware that I can’t live surrounded solely by items which predate my birth. That’s why, sometimes, you find me browsing IKEA for vintage-esque items.. or you know, maybe other shops too. For example the Uncommon Goods shop. It’s like browsing a flea market but nothing thinks of mould and death. Hurray!
This shop is pretty much magical. They sell everything from antique looking weird prints (because prints shouldn’t be just ‘Today is a great day’ in a fancy handwriting, okay?!; click here) and cartographic pillows & throws (no you’ll never get lost on your dreamy travels – geddit?; click here) to the swankies personalised gifts (because there’s nothing better than a cushion which has a secret formula of numbers on it that only you – and maybe your other half – can decipher; click here). FACT. By the way – you can have a sneaky peek behind the curtains of this shop’s studio (bloody cool right?) – click here and lead the way.
