T's Ten, ENGLAND EDITION!

Have you guys had a chance to check out the Oddfellows Facebook page with pictures from Tom's latest trip? Well, let me tell you. You're missing out if you haven't. I can't contain my excitement, and the best part is that there are even more goodies Tom wasn't able to get pictures of. Container time is always my favorite time at the shop, so I'm happy to share with you my ten favorite things Tom found that will be heading across the pond shortly. All prices are available upon request.

 1. These iron pub table bases are killer. I love that they are red for an added pop of color. I think a marble top would compliment them nicely.
 2. I've been on a major industrial kick lately (can you tell?) and this light fixture is awesome! I personally think it would look fabulous on our front porch but I could also see it above a breakfast nook or even rigged as a wall sconce.
 3. Holy mid-century bookcase! This is a stunner, isn't it? I love how many organizational elements are found in one piece and if you're a collector like me, the extra shelving is ideal for displaying knick knacks. When I saw this in the photo album I literally gasped!
 4. This chesterfield is a masterpiece and has a matching club chair. Most of you that shop with us know that the chesterfields are one of our most popular items, and they go fast. Luckily Tom found several great chesterfields on his visit, including an amazing navy version. He also found some burgundy pieces, so check out the other options on our Facebook page.
5. English dough bowls! We haven't had these in quite a while so I'm excited that Tom was able to find a great selection of them. Dough bowls never fail to enhance a room, whether placed in a family room, kitchen, or dining room. I like using them to contrast with our more modern and industrial pieces.
 6. Too much industrial goodness going on in one picture. Remember the French paper box with drawers? This white metal cabinet reminds me of that, and I would use it for the same purpose--hiding and storing all of my jewels so that my husband doesn't get worried that I own too many! Look at those little legs, too.
7. Tom found a lot of great pub signs this trip, but I think "The Green Dragon" is by far my favorite. I love its rounded shape and that the dragon is an actual cut out design.
 8. Loving this set of mid-century nesting tables, especially because of their smoky glass tops. I think Tom was able to pick up several nesting sets, too.
 9. This is a great high back upholstered bench, and I'm eager to see it in person. I love the diamond pattern of the fabric, and this piece would look great paired with a pine farm table or in an entryway. Plus you could probably have friends over to reinact your favorite scenes from Downton Abbey with this guy in your living room. Just saying.
10. I'm really into these pub tables. The bases are really what's doing it for me, but in general I love the selection of pub tables we keep in stock. A lot of my friends live in smaller homes or apartments that don't necessarily have room enough for a traditional dining table and chairs, but with the pub tables you can make a small dining nook without taking up a large amount of space. And again, look at these bases. Love!

So there you have it. Just a small glimpse at what Tom was able to find. We are expecting the shipment to arrive the first week of July. We will be sending out our newsletter announcing the container's arrival, so if you are not on our email list comment below with your email and we'll get you on board!

  1. What great finds! I'd love to know how your prices on the dough bowls. I just found a bunch at a local import store but these look nicer.

  2. Kim! So sorry we are just now getting back to you. We've still got about 4-5 dough bowls available. They are priced at $225 each, your pick, but the best price is $175!

  3. What a lovely furniture. The Holy mid-century bookcase is nice and I think it would be nicer if I could go home with this and also the upholstered bench I am sure my friend will gonna buy this. I am going to share your blog to a friend of mine.
