FOR SALE – Vintage haberdashery cabinet for sale, collect from Moray Place

July 23rd, 2012 1 comment

Totally fabulous original haberdasher’s cabinet, brought from an old-fashioned clothes shop on Pollokshaws Road years ago when it closed down, and selling as too big for the room its in. This is a great item, that holds lots and could work in a bedroom, kitchen, workshop anywhere. It measures 23″ width from front to back, 36″ deep from top to bottom and 60″ across from side to side.

There are 16 drawers, with brass handles, and most of the drawers are in excellent condition, one or two on the bottom need a re-glue. The glass at front and sides is intact and the Art Deco style feet are there, although one needs sticking back on. There’s lots of nice features like the original measuring tape as shown, and it only needs a clean up to be an amazing piece of furniture.

This has to be collected from Moray Place, on the ground floor and would need at least three folk to remove it. Price £750 ONO – a bargain, as these iconic pieces sell for £1k+ now. Email me on rosieilett@hotmail.com or leave comment if interested.

 

HELP! Can anyone help me thread up my sewing machine?

April 16th, 2012 1 comment

Hello. Is anyone in the area adept at sewing machine threading up? I would really appreciate some help, as am planning to make some things to sell at Bungo in the Back Lanes and have forgotten how to do it. I am in most evenings this week and some days, as well as next weekend. Thanks in anticipation, Bungo-ites. Rosie
