The Thimble Society stand in the Portobello needed a face lift. Our small stalls, inside the Admiral Vernon Arcade, measure approximately 1.50 metres square. You can imagine it is not like renovating Buckingham Palace. Because the stands are so small they need careful planning to make the most of the selling space without looking like a crowded junk shop. It is difficult to asses what the public enjoy looking at. Which is because ‘the public’ does not exist, but individuals do, and each one desires something different. A Turkish prayer rug will add interest to the floor and two extra shelves inside the showcases and a larger jewellery case on the counter. Modern acrylic and steel show cases are usful to modernise the display to fit collectors contemporary interiors. Join us if you can, we would value our collectors opinion.
