“At the beginning, as an addict, I didn’t really trust myself. But it’s just unbelievable now… We know what’s going to work and we just go for it. The confidence is good for me, it’s unbelievable.”

Our favourite things

We love antique and mid-century furniture, and not just because we think it looks so cool.

  • Vintage items from the 1950s, 60s or 70s are really popular in our Shoreditch shop
  • Items are often well made, so rewarding to work with
  • These items sells fast, making room for more new pieces to restore, which means more learning and more job satisfaction

We also love items that are quirky, kitsch, industrial, individual or just good fun.

Please note that we can’t accept donations of modern furniture, sofas, beds, or office furniture.

See our gallery for examples of lovely things we’ve enjoyed working on.

Please be aware that it can take several days to return messages as we are open part time.
