Ziggy Sawdust + Tippi

I ♥ furniture hunting and seeing potential in bashed up and tired pieces that are in need of some tender loving care and a second chance in life! And that's great for what I do because I will invest time and creativity in each piece to make it shine again.

But there aren't many places out there where you can go to buy affordable 'young' antiques that are in good nick.... until now!

There is a new shop opening in Bruntsfield, Edinburgh very soon which will specialise in vintage, quirky (+ just plain beautiful!) furniture and home ware. But for those pieces that do need a few touch ups, or if a customer would like a piece to be brought up to date with colours to match their decor, I will be a recommended restorer!

I have already been given a few Tippi pieces to redesign ahead of the shop's opening, including this wonderfully retro 1950s kitchen cabinet! I'm off paint shopping for it tomorrow!

 I am so excited by this opportunity- can't wait for Tippi to be open! .... The shop is named after the owner Anna's gorgeous little terrier who gives the best cuddles! Between the furniture and Tippi herself, I think I'll be making myself a permanent fixture there :)

'Like' Tippi on Facebook to be kept in the loop on the shop's opening :

And you'll be able to visit in a few short weeks here:
