Lindleywood handmade bird boxes are novel and fun

Lindleywood

Helen & Simon Lindley, 17 Pastures Road, Barrowby, Grantham, Lincolnshire, NG32 1AZ

phone: 01476 560707
At Lindleywood we design and hand-make original, fun wooden bird boxes and other products for home and garden. We also use only British suppliers; so we buy our sustainable European redwood pine from a local wood-merchant and use hardwearing non-toxic wood paints from an independent UK manufacturer.
 
Our products are often in the national media, such as on ITV's Love Your Garden and The Alan Titchmarsh Show. They make ideal gifts for all occasions where you want to give something that's well-made and unique. 
 
 
 
 
AntikBar vintage travel posters

AntikBar

404 Kings Road, London, SW10 0LJ

phone: 020 7352 9309

AntikBar is the London gallery specialising in original vintage posters covering a wide variety of subjects - travel, advertising, sport, cinema, war, propaganda - from around the world, available to view at their gallery and online, with worldwide delivery. 

AntikBar holds regular original vintage poster auctions and offers professional linen backing and poster restoration services. They provide collection advice and consultancy services and can source posters for collectors, individual clients, interior designers, museums and other institutions. 

Original vintage posters are a true form of art with a purpose, designed to deliver a particular message through striking designs and created to grab the attention of passers-by, presenting artists with the challenge of condensing the message or concept into a precise, short visual and written form in a single artwork. They are important items of social history that capture the essence of the time they were printed. 

The variety of sizes, subjects and styles in poster design make them perfect as a gift and adaptable to any interior design, from contemporary to traditional. As original antique and vintage items, they are also eco-friendly. Original vintage posters are recognised as a sound art investment that can be enjoyed every day.

Littleworks Creative

phone: +44 (0)7974 187479

Littleworks Creative offers little works of art by Tamara Williams. She makes her unique pieces using plaster to cast both intaglio and relief plates. Each cast is unique, since no two castings are the same. Even colours can change due to the plaster baking the surface and altering the stability of the inks..Tamara's exquisite artworks always start with a drawing - and much of her inspiration comes from plants. Each plaster tile is air-dried, mounted and framed, and frames are hand-painted. Works are made to order and colours can be specified. Prices from £65
