Watch out theres a squirrel about !! Our logo the big red squirrel has now spawned a squirrel infestation in our store with our mini felt tea cosies made by the lovely talented Emma .
So cute and only $20 and can be also used as a quirky aesthetic for the kids room.
Learn your body parts with our original 1940s series of old doctors charts just in and a very rare find. These wall charts are so one off and once gone thats all folks !! Are eight in a series.
Great size and colours and would look brilliant in a warehouse or industrial setting.
Who would have thought that coffee bean bags could look this stylish but you know we at Nook Vintage push out our own boat in forward thinking !! Well priced and so different from the usual high street styles they look fab mixed in with industrial timbers and ideal for a cafe or a coffee shop or for your out door bench.

A rare vintage treasure so see if you are the Cinderella that fits them.
Just in and newly waxed is this stunning red edged timber solid workbench with a bottom shelf perfect for the kitchen to store your paltes etc on.
The perfect size and width to be ideal for the home or a store or cafe project.
A gorgeous rich patina and a great appeal and these work benches are so highly sought after.
This is ready to go and priced well so any interest best be quick.
Hurry in and be quick as we have just found sets of chairs and they are doozies.
Sebels are in today straight from the country in a set of six and in dark green industrial metal but we have some fantastic red metal chairs from an old Donut Factory plus some sage green vinyl and metal stackables.
The in look from UK Stlye is now to mix up chairs and not have a series so as they are sold individually why not try it and create a new look in your home or garden.
"Nook Vintage" are excited to have them but chairs are our best seller and are not in store for long.
We love phones and have a quirky collection happening in store right now.
The black dial up telephone works a treat and has a lovely buzz but for the funniest gift of all you must check out the "Brick" or one of the early mobile phones we have !! I am not quite sure where you stored in when not in use but it really is mind blowing that we had a use for them in the first place.
At "Nook Vintage" we never do what others do and try and make our own way there. So yes there are a few Aussie tram rolls on the market so we went aginst the grain and bought in this one off fantastic piece from an old bus in London town and the grime comes free !!
With all the best London routes and landmarks this baby is the perfect gift for your home and makes a great talking point.
Come in and havva look and it will not break the bank..

Just found this amazing old tan leather Messenger bag in the country and am in lust with it as I am sure many readers will be.
In grand condition appart from a few grazes on the leather it is pretty good considering the age.
Deep pockets for lots of storage and a heavy piece with the best hide used.
Ideal for the boys or the gals or better still share.
First in best dressed with this one and will be a while before I find another I am sure ...
Great set of old school lockers in store this week and perfect for a hallway or a busy cafe. All doors can be padlocked and the lockers are in good condition with that industrial look we all love.
A solid piece and often hard to find in this configuration but we also have other ones in store in various styles so pop in and look.
After Christmas many of us nest and like to work on the home which is our haven of solitude. At "Nook Vintage" we have everything you need for the home (sorry if I sound like an ad for Bunnings right about now ! )
From cushions to flags we have lots of original pieces perfect to make your place stand out from the crowds.
I am crazy about flags right now .....no correct me,obsessed and I am constantly sourcing them as they are the big thing in interiors and look incredible either as a wall feature or draped over a battered chesterfield.
Alongside of the soft furnishing we have lots of great bigger pieces too that marry well together so pop in and let us mix and match and hopefully inspire you to nest this year.
Loooove this shot of our store "Nook Vintage" and it showcases most of our wares beautifully.
We have an abundance of tooled bags and satchels ready for summer days plus pretty festival dresses ripe for the picking!!
Our tresstle in the centre is for sale is for sale and made from an old door and is a true one off treasure.
Lots of wonderful finds and plenty of new stock for our new year opening, come on in and check us out!!
We at Nook Vintage do things bigger and better and boy do we have the best set of the biggest most stunning pigeon holes ever in store right now !! As you can see from the visual boots are a breeze to stand in them but this baby holds everything from bags to books and is the perfect wall accessory for any room or business.
An antique piece and very solid and about 1800 by 1520 in measurements. Incredibly hard to find now and in perfect condition.
Be one of the first to view these as we have just opened after christmas so only just in but be quick as these do not last too long atround these parts !!
Our layby is for anything in store except when we are on sale and involves a twenty per cent deposit and a four week time frame.
Bigger pieces can be stored safely in this period out of the store as we have limited floor space.
Conditions apply but this is one great bit of news that will please many of our regulars and give you more excuses to come and see us !
