Happy Birthday Gorgeous Gerties!

Curiosity And The Cat is proud to have been a retailer at Gorgeous Gerties since the end of February 2015. Gorgeous Gerties is a delicious tea rooms, vintage emporium and does spectacular creative workshops.

It’s located on Dorking’s bustling West Street, an antique and vintage enthusiasts heaven. It is owned by two best friends, Tracey and Debbie, who are the life and soul of Gorgeous Gerties and emit huge rays of sunshine wherever they are. Their positivity and enthusiasm is infectious so it’s a privilege to be one of Gorgeous Gerties retailers.

On Saturday Gorgeous Gerties celebrated it’s 2nd birthday so I brought my family along to help them celebrate! I told the story of the day by tweet, so I will keep this short and sweet, and describe the day using the tweets below… Read More

Birdy’s Tweet!

Since I started Curiosity And The Cat last September, I’ve poured my heart and soul into creating lively vintage furniture one-offs, hand painted signs for people with a sense of humour and style, delicious vintage teacup candles and sourcing original curiosities with personality. I’ve found the process even more rewarding than I thought I would. It’s so special knowing that the creations have ended up being enjoyed by customers and friends far and wide.

This is a little THANK YOU to all those magical people who have spent their precious time sharing how they feel about Curiosity And The Cat’s unique creations.

CATC’s November market… went with a bang!

I can’t believe it was a month ago that Curiosity and the Cat debuted at the Farnham Maltings Monthly Market. It was an eye-wateringly fresh and early start, a frenzied set-up and an excited wait until doors opened.

Eva gives CATC’s 1920s ‘Little Princess Chair’ a very good home

You can’t help but get attached to items you search for, find, ponder over and spend hours upstyling. Obviously anyone can buy them and do what they like with them. I did! But it’s the best feeling, knowing when they go to a good home.

That’s why I can’t thank Laura Bond enough for sharing these fabulous photos of her gorgeous Eva enjoying the 1920’s ‘Little Princess Chair’ she bought her at this Saturday’s Farnham Maltings Monthly Market.

Laura kindly said “Just wanted to let you know Eva LOVES her gorgeous princess chair! She sits in it to watch cartoons and have her snack, it’s so beautifully painted, what a lucky girl! I’ve already had lots of questions about where I got it from!”

Thank you!

Curiosity and the Cat had a wonderfully crazy day on Friday, getting set up at Bourne Mill Antiques and preparing for Saturday’s Farnham Maltings Market’s early start. So I went back to Bourne Mill Antiques on Sunday to double check I hadn’t dreamt the whole thing… luckily I hadn’t!

CATC now has a permanent space at this veritable treasure trove of a place, housing unique curiosities, handmade vintage teacup candles and hand-painted CATC designed signs. 

If you’re local, it’s worth popping in to Bourne Mill Antiques to see if there are any unique Christmas presents in there worth snapping up! With over 70 dealers in there, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
