Lou's Shed

My friend Louise is queen of the collectors. She has taught in International schools in many countries, cruising the markets and antique shops in her spare time, picking up many treasures. She has always loved the history that goes with her pieces and even has the first cot she slept in as a babe as well as her pre-loved toys and mothers and grandmother's kitchen items. She has an eclectic mix of household items, toys, laundry items, books and boxes, bottles, music, hats, ethnic art and more........so much more...... she has had to build a shed to house it. I had a wonderful time recently checking out collectors heaven and sparking memories from my youth.

Wow a trip down memory lane...it makes me long for the smells and sounds of my mum and nan cooking up a storm...especially cakes and biscuits. Melissa

Nice collection
But I suggest the lady has not registered,or applied for a company name in S.A
My partener and I have, at great expence registered and trade under the name of Lou's shed
The authorities are aware of this matter and warn all consumers to be aware of unsrupulous dealers.

Calma calma.......This is not a business It's just my freind Lou who has her stuff in a shed! Thus I gave the posting the title of "Lou's shed".
