I was so enamoured with these antique children’s shoe lasts that I had to bring them back to Canada! Did you know that the word β€œlast” comes from the Old English β€œlaest,” meaning footprint. Doing a little research on lasts, I discovered that a Cordwainer is a shoe maker and a Cobbler is the shoe repairer? I did not know that! These little treasures are mid 19th century and were originally carved from one piece of rough hardwood. The wood had to be knot free. The last maker would then use a knife and bench to form the size and shape. Up to as late as 1850 most shoes were made on straight lasts with no distinguishing left or right foot. However there were two widths, slim and stout. Ouch, they must have been a bitch to β€œbreak in”. You will find 18 of these sweet little wood forms at our Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 𝑼𝒑 Shop, which opens tomorrow.

This is definitely one of my favourite coffee tables that we’ve found over the years. I love it’s primitive rusticity with it’s thick butcher block top that sits so beautifully on 4 simple splayed legs. It is currently on our website @www.uniquities.ca or click the link on the photo. It will also be available at our Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 𝑼𝒑 Shop which opens this Saturday!

This is Brittany of @white.farmhouse and with her partner Deborah of @bvintagestyle they co-own @vintagesocietyco. They are big supporters of @uniquitiesyyc. Besides finding pieces for their homes, they also style and photograph with them too! I love this shot with Brit on one of our step ladders flocking one of her many Christmas trees! They both have an obsession πŸ˜‰ (Brit’s words) with our buckets! I must say, that tree looks adorable in the pale blue enamelled! With our upcoming Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 𝑼𝒑 Shop, we will bringing over πŸ’― vintage authentic buckets including enamel, olive and riveted zinc. Not to be missed!!

In 1869 John James Sainsbury and his wife Mary Ann opened a grocery shop at 173 Drury Lane, London. When he died in 1928, his grocery empire had swelled to 128 shops! From humble beginnings to over 1400 stores throughout the UK today. That’s a legacy. In Britain, there are salvage businesses focused on the excavation and restoration of these wonderful snippets of social history. They excavate at old Victorian and Edwardian landfills! Most of the pots date around 1900. They are easily identifiable with the elaborate black transfer β€œS” to the front. John Sainsbury was a very astute businessman, he understood the psychology of sales and the importance of lighting! It is noted that his dying words were β€œkeep the shops well lit” We promise to honour his words with lots of light at our Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 𝑼𝒑 Shop, where you will find dozens of these little treasures.

Good Morning! I love the moody feeling of the house this morning and the smell of evergreens. Normally, we don’t decorate until at least a week into December, but with our Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 𝑼𝒑 Shop fast approaching, and our insanely busy schedule, we thought we had better get on it! Doug built us this amazing console table using a 19th C church panel and a large slab of old Carrara marble. As we had the marble, he built the base to fit the stone. (Can’t wait to install our antique plank flooring after the holidays. For now I will not worry about the plywood!) I don’t generally like mirrors in sitting rooms, but this one is so distressed it works so well and still has its reflective qualities! On the table are these beautiful blown mercury bottles. Happy to say, we have a gorgeous selection of glass specifically found for our Christmas 𝑷𝒐𝒑 in the stunning @philcrozier studio located at PHOTOPHILCRO 3638 Manchester Road, SE December 7-9 from 10-5 pm Don’t miss this opportunity to shop for rare and unique gifts right here in Calgary! . . . . . . . . #antiquedealersofinstagram #europeanantiques #giftgivingideas #blownglass #mercury #christmasshopping #onlineshop #popupshop #oldisnew #getthelook #farmhouse #farmhousedecor #gustavian #vintagefarmhouse #hygge #lagom #wabisabi #photooftheday #potd #instagood #photobooth #gifts #holidayshopping #smallbusiness #primitive #styleyyc #love
