Monday shop post: Tarlo and Graham

Each time I visit Tarlo and Graham in Chapel Street, Windsor, it's like taking a step back in time:

Rolling pins that would look right at home in Mrs Beeton's kitchen...

Be instantly transported back to the 1920s - can't you imagine some pretty young slip of a thing reclining on one of these cane lounge chairs on the lawn of a stately home, sipping a gin and tonic or two...


Sometimes it feels like you're visiting your kooky old great aunt who has a thing for birds and taxidermy...

Masses of wooden spools rescued from a factory from a bygone era perhaps? Or collected from various places over time? I wonder.

Other days it's like raiding your eccentric uncle's marvellous back room...








Tarlo and Graham is all that and more. You never know what you're going to find once you step inside the door - and that's the joy of it!

Check out Tarlo & Graham's site for more delightful eccentricities.  And they've just started up a pretty snazzy blog too.

Wow Lee what an incredible shop - I love weird and wonderful shops like this. I really thinks it's time I had a shopping weekend in Melbourne! Hope you're well and had a relaxing weekend. Leigh

Oh, this used to be one of my favourite places to visit. I still sigh over a particularly unusual metal windmill that was about 2 metres high and painted in beautiful worn, yet still vibrant colours, Totally useless and far too big to fit in our house at the time, so I let it go. Sob!
