I've just got back from a fruitful day's worth of photography for the next edition of the Miller's Collectables Price Guide. Today I travelled to West London to visit the lovely Lesley of Retropolitan. We spent a fun and interesting day together chatting about favourite items and recent trends in the market.
Of course, it wasn't all play and we kept the task at hand firmly in the front of our minds, and worked through her extensive and varied stock that includes Scandinavian pottery and glass, Whitefriars, Murano glass and West German pottery amongst much, much more.
All of this happened to a backing track of upbeat, funky music from innovative independent record label Jalapeno Records. In my opinion, one of the best I heard was the new, and appropriately named, album 'Antique Soul' by Smoove & Turrell. Look them up and listen, it really is great stuff. And while you're grooving on down, check out Lesley's super stock by clicking here. To meet Lesley and view a special piece first-hand, visit her at the next Mid-Century Modern Fair at Dulwich College, South London on March 29th.
