I've just discovered a new shop (thank you Abi, she of the recent printer-tray-to-jewellery-storage post). I like it, so I thought I'd share it in case you don't already know it...
It's called The Vintage Wall, and the concept – click to buy items from a shop-style display – comes hot on the heels of the fabulously inspiring original, Supermarket Sarah (whose innovative web shop/art display/styling extravaganza approach to selling secondhand gems online has had her guesting as a pop-up in Selfridges, last year). It's a great idea that is sure to keep spreading. Have you seen any other excellent wall style shops online? I'd love to hear about them if so.

It's such a simple, but brilliant idea for bringing objects to life in online stores, where it can be hard to imagine how a freaky but wonderful object – such as these slightly creepy hands, below (which, of course, I love), £15 a-piece. The shop's descriptions are full of ideas, too – it suggests these corpse-like gems could also be used as light-pulls or handles. Done anything clever with unusual old things in your home?
