One of my favourite things to do in the UK is to poke around small antique sales, places like Portobello Road and Spitalfields Market, and of course, car-boot sales. In the spirit of Portobello Road, I am having a pop-up sale in September, hosted by my great friends at Halcyon House Antiques.Portobello Logo

As you know if you’ve been reading Pigtown*Design for any length of time, I have a broad love for English antiques. My Etsy shop always features beautiful English silver, including teapots, pitchers, serving pieces,imageand of course, mother-of-pearl handled silverware.imageIn addition, I’ve assembled a great collection of individual English transferware both in blue and white and polychrome, perfect for expanding your collectionsimage

Everything in this sale is something that I’ve found in my travels and have personally selected as something I’d like to have in my own house (and in many cases, I do have duplicates).

One of the things I like to do is use pieces in ways other than their original intention. For example, this salt shaker is now a wee bud vase,image

and this egg cup is now holding some fragrant honeysuckle blossoms.image

Please stay tuned for more details as we move closer to the date. And if there’s anything in particular that you’re looking for, do let me know.
