We are situated in the charming market town of Marlborough in Wiltshire, at the end of the High Street. As you're facing the Town Hall, take a left-hand fork and on the corner you will find our delightfully eclectic shop "The Cat's Whiskers".
Spread over two floors, with a pretty little courtyard crammed with gardenalia at the rear, we offer a constantly changing range of vintage and decorative items for the home and garden, together with unusual gifts.
We specialise in the quirky. Everything from vintage kitchenalia to automobilia and antique fire extinguishers to French enamelware.
As inveterate recyclers, we are ingenious in finding new uses for items which others would dismiss as obsolete. Our selection of hand-woven antique linen includes Hungarian corn sacks to use as bench covers or bath mats, and sieves and ladders, which may be used to hold utensils, plants and bird feeders.
Always popular are towel rails, pretty painted chairs, shelves and chests of drawers. Antique and new garden furniture is availble all year round, and often sells well at Christmas, providing additional indoor seating for guests, then folding away until it is needed in the garden next spring. Some of our best sellers for gifts are antique watering cans - ideal gifts for keen gardeners!
Our shop is the perfect place for anyone wishing to furnish their home stylishly on a budget, to give an individual touch to a garden, or to find an unusual gift.
