Nicholas & Steele
1 review of Nicholas & Steele in English
Nicholas & Steele are a wonderful new addition to Durham Road - a classic style shop-front which houses a treasure-trove of vintage treats within.
What caught my eye on passing by one evening was a fantastic Colclough’s ‘Cottage & Stream’ china tea-cup and saucer; I’m a huge fan of this particular Colclough vintage china range as I have many happy memories of having afternoon tea with my beloved Granna when I was a little girl!
I was warmly greeted by Holly and Steven, the owners of Nicholas & Steele and offered a cup of tea – what a lovely way to shop and do business! Of course, the tea was made in a gorgeous 1930′s Crinoline Lady teapot (periwinkle blue?) and served up in vintage bone china tea-cups and saucers. Love it, love it, love it – this is customer service at it’s best, methinks!
Holly and Steven are rightly proud of their business which, as I found out, had only opened on Saturday – the day when I had spied their vintage treasures. The amount of love and attention they have poured into every single detail of their business is evident for all to see; they are undeniably very talented and offer a scrumptious range of products.
The charming dressers are all hand-painted by them and I’ve already picked the one I wish to see in my home! At the back of the shop I spied an incredible chest of drawers painted in a striking union-jack flag effect, simply stunning. The union jack flag was similarly echoed on the front of the shop’s counter, in pastel shades to complement the vintage treasures for sale.
Nicholas & Steele not only sell vintage tea-sets and other assorted vintage afternoon tea treasures (cupcake stands etc.), but they also have an amazing array of vintage kitchenware (including cutesy jelly moulds) and stunning antique embroidered and/or lace tablecloths and table mats; Holly is very creative and also hand-makes bunting from vintage table linen that are no longer usable and other antique materials she has picked up along the way.
There is also an assortment of trinkets and jewellery – so a perfect place to shop for unusual gifts too. I do like the idea of a one-stop shop …!
Holly is also an artist and has plans for offering creative workshops over the coming months, so do pop by and say hello to them in Durham Road, SW20. I am sure you will be just as tickled pink by the shop and it’s delightful owners as I am.
