  • Turning the tables (16/9/2017) - When Gail Rowlands visited our stall and went away with a rather sad looking wooden plant stand, we did wonder what would become of it – was it destined for fire wood perhaps?? We need not have been concerned – Gail has worked her magic and transformed the stand into the thing of beauty that you see […]
  • Book ’em Danno! (1/9/2017) -   A big thank you to Dan who visited our stall when we were in Faversham. Dan went away with a selection of vintage books. He very kindly sent us this picture of what he had done with them. We were very impressed with his flare – such as stylish way to display them,  and […]
  • machine on stAL Sew far, Sew good (25/2/2016) - On our last visit to Greenwich Clocktower Market, we took with us this lovely 1930’s Skinner No.9 hand crank sewing machine. This was the first time we’d had a sewing machine for sale and wasn’t too sure how it would be received. As you can see the machine itself is a thing of beauty, with stylish gilding to […]
  • BOOKS ON WEBSITE We’re just loving this! (16/2/2016) - As part of our homage to St. Valentines Day, on our stall at Greenwich Clocktower Market in February we had some rather lovely antique poetry books. We had all the old favourites Wordsworth, Longfellow and  the main man Mr Mad, Bad and Dangerous to know Lord Byron. One of our visitors was Johanna Paulson, Graphic Designer […]
  • IMG_0259 A Bear-y Happy Ending (17/12/2015) - Sometimes at Copper Jug we get attached to the items we are selling. We know that’s not business like or rational but there are times when our hearts rule our heads,  it just can’t be helped. One example of this is the story of Big & Little Ted.   Once upon a time there were two Steiff Bears called Big & […]
  • book The Law’s the Law (17/11/2015) - We came across this wonderful copy of “Every Man’s Own Lawyer” by A. Barrister from the 1940’s. A good friend of Cooper Jug is Barry a Solicitor from Kent and so we knew there was only one place this great book was destined. Barry was most relived that is now out of circulation and means that […]

The perfect way to be environmentally friendly and save some money by avoiding the 5p bag charge that the major retailers are now required to make. As you can see this […]
  • hair curler Keep your hair on! (20/10/2015) - One of our visitors in October went away with a pair of vintage hair/moustache curlers. The curlers had a wooden handle with the tongs made of iron. Originally, they would have been heated by putting them in an open fire or warmed up on a range. As you can understand, we were somewhat curious as to what our visitor, Sarah, planned to do with them and so we couldn’t […]
