Hello and welcome to Pippins
This is my journey so far.... I loved rustic garden implements and shabby chic painted furniture. It was my hobby to find a beautiful piece and give it some TLC and find it a new home. Whilst I was doing this I met my wonderful Husband. We moved to Devon and bought our first home together. It had a fabulous name of an Old English Apple. Have you guessed? Yes, that's right, it was 'Pippins' The perfect name for my business. Pippins was born!
I had to move with the times. Rustic antique garden items were very expensive. I decided it was time to diversify. I then combined rustic pieces with more reasonably priced shabby chic vintage items. I established my business in 2004 by renting spaces in Antique centres, attending craft fayres, markets and launching a website.
After a few years we decided to move to Hampshire to be closer to our family. We moved to the village of Oakley. I have continued to develope a great online business, but wanted to follow my dream of having my own premises. I found the perfect place in the village that had been empty for 5 years. After many days of hard work, I rented the space and in June 2012 I purchased it. My very own vintage retreat!
I would love you to visit our website with many beautiful accessories to choose from for every room. I specialise in offering ornamental items made from many different materials including wood, tin, wirework and enamel, all in the country chic style that your family and friends will love.
