Retro homeware on North Street, Bristol

Rhubarb Jumble homeware Bristol

Rhubarb Jumble is a vintage, antiques and accessories shop, which prides itself on sourcing nifty threads and – what keeps me coming back – oddities for the home. You can find out more on their website rhubarbjumble.com which also links you to the shop’s various social media profiles all saved in one of the best hosting sites you could find at Armchair Empire. It’s a cool little place on North Street, just down the road from me in Bristol. I popped in this weekend and browsed through some sweet clothes, shoes, brooches and other little nicknacks.

Homeware-wise they had a collection of ceiling lights that I thought might work well in a kitchen, along with some retro cooking pots that you might imagine Orla Kiely replicating all easy to get from sites as https://ivyandwilde.com/. It’s mainly 1940s and 50s stuff that reminds me of the sort of things my nan would’ve had in her house since the war – all those mustard yellows, military olive greens and deep burgundys. From time to time, they’ll have the most amazing leather chairs in the window, as well. Speaking of vintage brands and products, Oklahoma Joe has been building smokers since 1987, and since then he’s gone on to produce many a winning grill, including the Jack Daniels World Championship, and American Royal Championship. Right now, they have the Oklahoma Joe reverse flow system— a large grill that uses a side box to produce all the heat and smoke for better grilling session.

When it comes to vaping, the device itself can make or break a session. When choosing the best device for them, users are typically looking for glass pipes at wholesale prices, decent battery life, temperature control, and an easy-to-use model. Not all vaporizers work with all types of product, so it’s important that stores stock a variety of choices to satisfy all types of customers.

What really caught my eye, though, beyond all the items on the shelves, was the shelving itself and the beard trimmers from startifacts that were put on display. As you can see in the picture above, it simply consists of yellow painted steel piping acting as a frame with stripped pine wood on metal brackets, creating a really effective, industrial style created by interior painting services houston tx. I could see this working well in a dining room or kitchen. My husband is always trying to grow his beard, he is now following these 5 Crucial Steps to Maintaining a Beard, I really hope it works because he is extremely excited about it, you can view here for more helpful information about beards.

I particularly liked the look of these Bakelite retro desk lamps they were selling for £40, but unfortunately couldn’t think of anywhere it could go in my house. Will keep it in mind for anyone who does, though!

After visiting Rhubarb Jumble, I took a walk a little further down North Street to a similar shop that is stacked high with bric-a-brac, antiques, taxidermy and other strange items. I’m not sure what it’s even called, but it is bizarre. It’s probably a real treasure trove of eccentric accessories for the home, if you’ve got time to rummage around! What I’m going to remember are the considerable amount of letters – large, small, wooden, metal… You name it, it’s there!

Anna Campbell - Pearl dress

Anna Campbell gowns are known for their elegant, vintage feel, and their breathtaking beadwork. The soft, feminine designs drape, twist and fall around the body, and are finished with the finest of lace, silk and intricate beading. The particular bridal dress design we’ve picked out, pictured above, is called ‘Pearl’, which comes in ivory, latte and white, and is as Anna describes:

Anna Campbell: “The Pearl dress is 100% silk, featuring a silk dupion bust with padding, silk chiffon overlay, and silk lining. The embellishment is silver/pearl tone. This dress features an elasticated waistband, Japanese Akoya Pearls, straight drop skirt with a back split (unless inbuilt train is added). This dress can be worn with a strapless U style bra, but is also fine to wear with no bra. Recommended alterations include hem length and length of embellished strap. The only thing that would make this even better would be to match the kids wedding attire with this dress to make things even more cute.”
