Shirley is obsessed with miniature bears & miniature books, but her current passions are lace and buttons.
On the first floor of Morpeth Antique Centre there are museum displays of all four. Nearly 60,000 buttons through the centuries are available for sale. The oldest piece of lace dates back to the 1500’s. Shirley has collected lace from all over the world – Italy, Croatia, Malta, Sicily, United Kingdom, Belgium, France & Germany to name a few. Some are for sale.
Shop 4 also specialises in antique and vintage postcards & scraps, as well as book plates. Ranges of Crystal, Cut Glass and large ranges of new Cornishware, Spode, Bendigo Pottery and Mason & Cash Mixing Bowls are for sale.
Vintage bottles, Tea Cosies, Gollies, vintage amber glass, sewing implements are a specialty, along with silk ribbon, cotton and beads for embellishing.
