Lock Stock and Sparrow
On a busy main road, lies a little treasure.
In the 9 years we have lived in our house, we have seen businesses come and go, in the showroom space next to the petrol station. But now it seems one is here to stay.
Lock Stock and Sparrow is a vintage lovers dream. You have to squeeze past rows of chairs, root around the chests of painted drawers and every wall displays curious finds. (I think one of the tennis racquets would look amazing on my office wall.)
Owned and run by Mike, you could browse for an hour or rush in, after paying for your petrol!
There is absolutely loads I could buy. Furniture, memorabilia, mirrors, the list goes on and on. There are some rare treasures - I would love the vintage apple press and there are several sets of weighing scales that have gone straight on my birthday wish list. So many awesome photography prop possibilities!
I just about had enough pennies in the bottom of my handbag for this bundle of antique keys for £5. I have absolutely no idea what I am going to do with them, but that's the fun part right?!
Have a peek at the Lock Stock and Sparrow's Facebook page for lots more photographs. And if you are ever tootling along the A371 stop in!
