Bannermania- Or How We Moved Workshops

Phew. I’m not doing that again. That is it. They are going to have to carry me out of this place FEET FIRST. Wrapped in a shroud of my favourite vintage brocade, born aloft on a pyre of half-renovated armchairs.

We moved. We have quadrupled our space and returned all the furniture scattered about in Bristol in other people’s garages/ spare rooms/ dungeons. The Diaspora has returned to the Promised Land. And yea, for that land was in Easton. And yea, they looked upon the Workshop and It Was Good.

You will find us in one of the workshops, behind these doors, at 10 Bannerman Road BS5 0RR. There is a telephone line, but no handset, as yet, so that is a secret. YES! We run a business WITH A SECRET TELEPHONE NUMBER. There is a dartboard. And an oche. Come and throw some darts while you feel the quality of the furniture. Do NOT throw the darts AT the quality furniture.

Somewhere-Over-The-Rainbow Celebration Ercol Chair

WP_20140402_5951 (1)

Finished this cracker today. It’s mostly in grey marl wool felt, but flipped with a Rainbow Geometry in cotton-linen. Top-stitching, zipping, you know, the usual. Only a moderate amount of swearing went into this effort. And no blood. Make me an offer. It’ll be in the shop as soon as the sun comes out and I can snap it properly (sometime in September, then).

Oh, what a wonderful thing to be, A healthy grown up busy busy bee…

Laydeez & Gennelmen, Tickety-Boo is proud to present for your delight, delectation and bottom comfort:

One Sun & Sky yellow & blue wool mix Ercol Windsor Arm Chair

One BONKERS Cintique in raspberry with frankly alarming tribal detailing. I think I was having a funny turn when I put this one together. I was certainly feeling peculiar by the time I’d finished it. But that might just’ve been the fine paste wax.

And for pudding, get your cocktail shaker out- there’s this little B E A U T Y…

They’re all for sale.

I rather suspect the raspberry one will be for sale for quite some time.

“Oh, what a wonderful thing to be,
A healthy grown up busy busy bee;
Whiling away all the passing hours
Pinching all the pollen from the cauliflowers.
I’d like to be a busy little bee,
Being as busy as a bee can be.
Flying around the garden brightest ever seen,
Taking back the honey to the dear old queen.”


Grey-Brown Retro Armchair Piped to Perfection
Stripped and waxed, new webbing and new zipped seat pad. The prettiest buttoned scatter cushion I HAVE EVER MADE (expect more of them, yessiree). This is a really really really comfy chair. Unfortunately, our house is filling up with chairs and lego. Something’s gotta give. And it’s the chairs.
