As a Virtual Assistant we are often asked to shop on behalf clients, mainly for birthday or wedding presents so as you can imagine I was keen to move somewhere with all the amenities without having to resort to driving into London each time. My search for client shopping potential has been much fun though a little hard on my bank balance as I get waylaid...
One of my new discoveries is Homestuff With History who decided to make their Summer pop up at the lovely Burwash Manor into a more permanent affair. Lucky for all us customers who love something unique rather than the run of mill, they are now there to stay.
Homestuff with History is packed with furniture and vintage items that send me all a quiver. Unique items that have been shown a bit of love and are now ready to grace a new home. Successfully run by brother and sister team Matt and Kathryn Brown for over 10 years now, this new venture is bound to be a success. As well as all the enticing collection the staff are delightful too, happy to chat and advise.
I shall definitely be back and am over the moon with my little green glass bottle and fruit tray which I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of!
From 1 October, Homestu ff with History, run by brother and sister Matt and Kathryn Brown, will be open seven days a week at Burwash Manor, in the shop next to Backstitch.
Says Kathryn: “My brother and I used to run away together and go to junk shops, then we started doing stu ff up that we’d found. He’s a carpenter. Then before we knew it, we’d given up our ‘proper’ jobs and had set up a shop of our own.”
For ten years, Homestuff with History has been happily selling the very best of vintage, from huge housemaids cupboards to dinky enamel dog bowls, they’ve bought and sold it all and pride themselves on only stocking the real deal. You’ll find no repro here, just genuinely fascinating, unique pieces to adorn your home… and all a ffordable, too.
