Something to do over the Bank Holiday...

Good evening. This is just a quick post to show you what we have in new for the Bank Holiday so there's not much chatter, just a few pictures. But next time I hope to be able to introduce you to one of our dealers and tell you more about her stock of fabulous vintage clothing. Vintage is something we have embraced here at Harrogate Antique Centre and along side our traditional antiques and antique furniture we have a number of dealers who specialise in vintage and retro stock. But I will tell you more next time.

Today I have started for the men (reverse sexism) with this smoking cabinet and collection of pipes. The cabinet is really nice with glazed doors, drawers for all the bits and bobs that pipe smokers seem to need and tobacco jar in the centre. As you've probably guessed I'm not a smoker but I still like this, its well made and has all its bits. And for the girls amongst us its even pretty!

But, staying with the boys for now, we have cars.

And more cars.

Although these cars are sharing space with some Whimseys and other collectables,
so not just for the boys.

Further around there's this fabulous enamel sign, just one of a few we have to choose from this week. 
This one would look fabulous in my dream kitchen.

Sitting quite close to the sign is this guitar. It is sitting on a saddle would you believe?
And the saddle is on a 30's armchair - all tastes catered for here!

Also in here is this roomy Press. Loads of storage all in one place.
Inside it has the original slides and at the bottom there are plenty of drawers.
I know its probably sacrilege to many of you but I'd love to paint this, a nice sludgy green I think.

A bit sludgier than these painted chairs a bit further round.

I think it would look nice the colour of that table peeking out on the right of this picture - you can just see two legs and a bit of the top. Its a lovely colour.
The chairs are good too with blue Toille seats. 
And I love the Owl cushion.

For the traditionalists amongst us there is this very pretty sofa.

And this child's American rocker.

And for me there is this lovely lovely Peony fabric.
Actually its a pair of really nice quality lined curtains, but isn't it pretty?

We also have a huge collection of costume jewellery

There's lots of gems to choose from in the centre as we have a number of dealers who stock costume jewellery. It is always popular and lovely to rummage through!

And then finally for today we have this...

...a taster of what is to come next time.

So that's it for today. 

We are open all the Bank Holiday weekend so why not come along and have a look?
We are easy to find on the A61 Leeds Road, just outside Harrogate at Pannal, opposite the Mercedes dealership and just before Pannal Golf Club. 
We have FREE parking and a great Cafe/Bistro on site so we make a lovely day out!
Open Saturday 9.30 to 5.30, Sunday 10 to 4 and Bank Holiday Monday 9.30 to 5.30.

Normal hours are 9.30 to 5.30 Monday to Saturday and 10 to 4 Sunday.

We hope to see you soon, have a great weekend.
