The Hunt Goes On...

We've been very busy in the past couple of weeks hunting out pieces of furniture that would suit the re-designed Adam and Eve, which is not as easy as it sounds, actually.

The majority of materials that are going back into the new look pub are reclaimed or re-used, and so it's been important for us to root out pieces of furniture that have also got more of a history to them than sitting on an Ikea shelf. As a result, Tim and I have been to antiques fairs across the South East (some of which, when we got to them, were little more than glorified land-fill sites that had the cheek to charge an entry fee - it's amazing what some people will try to sell!!).

We are also keen to make some items ourselves based on designs that we have seen, and this is something we'll be doing in the next couple of weeks. So if you know of any designs that might be suitable (and relatively straight forward to make) we would love to know about them. Equally, if you know of anyone selling antique furniture at a reasonable price (particularly Victorian/Edwardian draw-leaf tables and chairs) then again, please let us know.

Finally, if you're not on our mailing list yet, please take a second or two to fill out the form by clicking here. We will be using email to send out invitations to the opening as well as future offers and news about events, so it's well worthwhile!
