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. 

Purely Shutters widow covers

Purely Shutters

Unit 5, Birmingham Trade Park, Kingsbury Road, Birmingham, B24 9PS

phone: 0800 038 5311
Shutters not only look great, they're a recognised energy efficiency measure under the government's Green Deal, with an estimated £96 savings per year on a three-bedroom house (2013). In summer use shutters to keep your house cool, and in winter use them to let in natural warm light, then close them when it gets dark to retain heat in your home. It’s estimated that shutters reduce heat loss from windows by 25-50 per cent, so they're a very sensible investment.
 
At Purely Shutters we care about the environment and ethics. All our woods are from sustainable sources: we buy cedar from managed forests where a tree is replanted for everyone felled; our laminated wooden shutters come from parasol, a fast-growing farmed wood; and our Warwick range is our most eco-friendly, because no trees have been felled for them - rather the laminate is produced from waste off-cuts not useable elsewhere.
 
Purely Shutters' products allow you to maintain privacy, especially important if you live in close proximity to your neighbours. But because you can open the slats during daytime, you'll get maximum light in your rooms, which is important because natural light is vital for our health and wellbeing.

Keep bins out of sight with this wooden bin hide from British Bins

British Bins

4a Sydenham Avenue, Sydenham, London, SE26 6UH

phone: 020 8776 8957
BritishBins was born out of the need to supply good quality wheelie bins which are excellent value for money. Since then, we have increased our product range to include lots of complementary products that not only help you manage waste but also make it easy to recycle.
 
We're always on the lookout for environmentally-friendly ways to help you reduce, re-use and recycle. Currently we sell kitchen caddies to collect food waste, desktop battery bins, use FSC-certified timber for our wheelie bin enclosures and sell portable crushers for plastic bottles and drink cans to increase space in recycling bins.
 
Many people think bins just come in one size, shape and colour; but through our website we hope to prove you wrong. We are confident you'll find something that you need, and which will help towards building a circular economy.
 
For any questions we're just a phone-call away!

By Dee McLean, Hampstead Heath in summer

Dee McLean Art

London NW5

Dee is an artist inspired by nature, be it her local Hampstead Heath, Louisiana or Canada - the latter two are important to her because she lived in the former and her daughter now lives in the latter.  Dee has a background in medical drawings but in recent years has returned to painting the natural world using watercolours predominantly. She captures the detail of vegetation while her paintings transmit the relaxed nonchalence of the natural world.  Dee is very committed to communicating how climate change is affecting the planet and her art depicts a changing world. You can buy giclee prints of Dee's original works, or commission a painting.

Elizabeth Macregor Nursery is famed for its violas

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery

Ellenbank, Tongland Road, Kirkcudbright, DG6 4UU

phone: 01557 330620

Elizabeth Macgregor Nursery is a small nursery and garden run by Elizabeth and Alasdair MacGregor, and their son John, in Galloway, south-west Scotland. We sell plants by mail order, at some flower shows and of course from the nursery. We produce a new catalogue each autumn, when we know what we have propagated and should have available for the following spring. We usually send plants in spring, March to early May. After this we will try to fulfill orders until the end of May, though taller plants will have to be cut back to fit a box.  No autumn deliveries.

Elizabeth specialises in cultivating violas and she has won prestigious awards for her plants, including the Wild Swan anemone

You can select and order plants through our online shop. When you have selected your plants the system sends me an email with your order, I will then confirm with an email, usually within a few hours.
