We realise that we get many enquires from people outside the central belt of Scotland & so at long last we've taken the lockdown as an opportunity to start putting some of our gargantuan collection online. It’s a huge job, not least because grub screws need to be found, paint stripped, spindles found etc, etc…, but we’ve made a start.

All these are original antique or vintage pieces - no reproductions here!

Many are one off items and once they’re gone that’s it.
