small and simple things...

Rare & Fetching evolved organically. It was born from my twin loves: the intricate delicacy of the natural world married with the humble everyday items used when life was simpler.

Rare & Fetching is inspired by a love of small, unusual and simple things. By the era of discovery and collection. The cabinet of curiosities. The butterfly collectors and specimen painters and their accouterments. By walled gardens, libraries, country kitchens and by the tiniest life forms secreted in the meadow.

With my Rare & Fetching hat firmly on my head I seek out treasures with history, patina, simplicity and beauty from the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia. Whether it is an old toy, an well-used coat hook, a natural history print or a piece of crisp linen, each item has a single thing in common… That it has spoken to the inner part of me; the place I keep my twin loves. An item may be rare or fetching or both, but it will also contain a story, the patina of many hands and a strong link to a time before built-in obsolescence to when objects were made to last.
