Close Cover Before Striking

17/10/2012 § Leave a comment

How lovely are these prints by Vincent McEvoy?  Inspired by his own personal collection of vintage matchbooks and available in extremely limited supply (only 20 of each!), you’ll need to act fast if you want to make them you own.  To purchase, head over to Pedlars, the amazing vintage-y curiosity shop run by Charlie and Caroline Gladstone that I originally discovered by wandering into their Notting Hill location when I was in London a couple of years ago.

I have to admit, the Gladstones seem to have a pretty perfect life.  They live in the Highlands of Scotland, in a home filled with children, dogs and horses.  They recently revived a 200 year-old inn in north Wales called The Glynne Arms and transformed it into a lovely restaurant and pub.  They are organic farmers, photographers, authors and passionate antique pickers that travel far and wide in the pursuit of vintage treasures.  You can get a glimpse of their adventures on their blog and Charlie’s Instagram (@chasgladstone), but fair warning — it’s definitely envy-inducing.
