In my shop, there would be yards of fabric spilling out from well worn trunks, in colors that are easy on the eyes.
Scrimshaw brooches hold romantic reminders of the past and could be incorporated into the wardrobes of both ladies and men who long for the sea.
These dishes with a pattern of sailing vessels are casual enough to be used as everyday tableware yet are formal enough to include in a collection of vintage English transfer ware.
I think they would make a pretty accent displayed inside a glass fronted cabinet too.
In my shop, stacks of tea cups would be plentiful and within reach for anyone longing for a hot cup of tea.
Or for those that prefer coffee, my shop will serve that too.
I'm very accommodating like that in my imaginary shop by the sea. For now, I bid you farewell, like the sailor's depicted in my teacup pattern, as I'm off to dream of what other treasures a sea faring vessel would bring to my shop. Thanks for sailing in to see me!
