Cornwall here we come....

Cornwall here we come….

Every dog has its day….Every coat rack maker has his holiday…Mine starts Fri September 26th and runs until Mon October 6th.

Thanks to an I-Pad, I am contactable at hello@hookedonhooks.co.uk, for any tentative enquiries.

Any items bought from the Hooked on Hooks’ PRODUCTS page will be packed and sent the day after my return from holiday – MANY APOLOGIES for the delay.

Happy holidays…

Victorian antique pine coat rack with cast iron Kenrick hooks

Victorian antique pine coat rack with cast iron Kenrick hooks

Stumped for a wedding or anniversary present? Or commemorative gift, perhaps?

A coat rack might not be as unlikely an idea as you think. They are basically built to last forever. If the wood is not already antique, in a hundred years the entire coat rack, hooks and all, will be! And of course there isn’t a home on the planet that wouldn’t benefit from more hanging space, be it in the hall, bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, conservatory, garage or shed….Well, you get the idea.

George & Lee in East Sussex certainly liked their wedding present (Pictured):

“Thank you so much for our GORGEOUS coat rack. It’s amazing!”

When is a coat rack not a coat rack?

Handmade, kiln-dried French oak stool from Hooked on Hooks

Handmade, kiln-dried French oak stool from Hooked on Hooks (£130.00 including FREE shipping to mainland UK)

When it’s a stool, of course…

By way of expanding the Hooked on Hooks’ line-up, I have decided to add furniture items per se to my repertoire. I have made stools before, as well as other items such as nest tables, garden tables, clothing rails, shelf units and so on, but this is the first time I’ve made a non-coat rack piece for stock.

The stool is currently on display at The Gallery, Stourhead, along with several Hooked on Hooks’ coat racks. Don’t be put off by this. If you are interested in these items (details can be found in the Products section of my site at http://www.hookedonhooks.co.uk/c/19/all-products), just email me -Steve Gamblin – at hello@hookedonhooks.co.uk and I’ll confirm availability and retrieve the item for immediate dispatch, if required.
