Welcome to our links section!

This is where we hook you up with some of our personal favourites - websites, characters, or whatever catches our eye from time to time - all under a very broad interpretation of the term 'Vintage Style'.  It's a little more about fun and less about furnishing, but we hope you enjoy it !

P.S. Feel free to suggest your own pet links too. :)

Here's an oddball one for all the people who have come into the shop and fallen in love with our wooden tv. A photo site completely devoted to excellent and highly creative pictures of (mostly vintage) televisions!

Ok, going to stretch that vintage style definition a bit. Zippo lighters are an American design classic that has barely changed a fraction since 1933. And about a nano-second after they went on sale, it seems there came a host of quick-handed zippo tricks to master. This youtube video gives you a quick tutorial on just one - 'the Ghost Flame' a.k.a. 'twilightzone'. But be careful - you'll be trying it at your own risk!
