Phew! Happy HQ is a-buzz with new items getting ready for restocking the website after a lovely and lively day out in Oxford with the Vintage Furniture Flea. Happy customers took away our dropleaf table, our Tapiovaara rocking chair, our Hans Wegner armchair and a gorgeous set of 6 Ercol dining chairs. Our Greaves and Thomas Egg Chair (or Eggy-weggy woo-wah, as she’s now called – don’t ask, there is no explanation) received a great many compliments, but has yet to find her forever home…is it with you?!
In addition to meeting lots of lovely new customers, we also had the pleasure of having our pitch opposite Retro Bazaar, which meant we got to listen to their tunes all day (whilst coveting their fabulous radiograms) and to ogle the beautiful items on offer from Whittaker & Gray…more mid century glory!
All in all, a brilliant day – and now it’s back to working on, oh, let’s see… A fantastic Gplan Swivel chair; some unusual Ercol armchairs; a couple of summery Parker Knolls; a enormous table or two… I love my job!
