Furniture Shop

This week we added some more exciting pieces of furniture to our new shop which is situated beneath ‘Fat Apples Cafe’ Porthallow, Helston Cornwall TR12 6QH.

Saffron Cottage Furniture Shop

Although a little out of the way, the location gives you a fantastic drive out enjoying a beautiful part of Cornwall you wouldn’t necessarily think about visiting; but it really is worth a look.  Whilst there, you could enjoy a gorgeous lunch or afternoon tea with a top drawer piece of cake at the cafe and then maybe visit to the local beach and cosy village of Porthallow.

As you can see we have started to dress the shop with small nic-nac’s, all of which are for sale at reasonable prices, along with some interesting quirky candlesticks, mirrors, cake stand, and a pair of magnificent torchiere’s.  If you are interested in brightening up your home with a conversation piece in the form of an unusual well painted piece of furniture with Saffron Logo, then this is the place for you.

In another step forward we are now displaying and selling our furniture in a barn attached to the ‘Fat Apples Cafe’, at Porthallow, Nr Helston in Cornwall. ( Look them up on Facebook  at  www.facebook.com/pages/Fat-Apples-Cafe/546104682095795.)

If your down this way this summer go and have a look whilst enjoying a lovely meal, cup of tea, along with the most scrumptious cakes and see what you think.

Decoupage Table

A recent client wanted to use the wall paper in her room to tie in a piece of furniture to match her design. The next few photo’s show how I transformed a plain brown table into a little thing of beauty.
