We are Caroline and Dave Lewin the husband and wife duo that run Trunk Vintage Furniture. You might think this is a rather unusual name. However we wanted something that conjured up images that reflect the nature of our business whilst retaining the family feel that means something personally to us? Why Trunk I hear you ask? well that's easy, it's a nick name Caroline has had since she was 19 years old!

We live and work in a beautiful and tranquil setting in the grounds of Great Ote Hall, West Sussex. Our cottage and garden are a bit of an old curiosity shop, in fact a blend of individual and quirky pieces found whilst on jaunts around the countryside, particularly in Cornwall.

We received many positive comments on our garden ornaments and our quirky  home decor so the idea came to us that perhaps we could recreate this in our work. So we bought a van, ditched the suits and headed for the markets and auctions with our  curious canine accomplice and Vintage Cadet Tommy the Collie, a pup who is responsible for unexpected pit stops and off road foraging. You can his antics and our day to day activities via our Instagram page trunkvintageuk

On our road trips we hand pick nostalgic and vintage items that have been previously loved and that are looking to be cherished and shared again. Whether it is flotsam and jetsam from rocky beach at Trevone bay, old wooden furniture from auctions and markets or unnusual pieces that can be repurposed to create something new. We find pieces that have a story and that want to be enjoyed again.

 Our website allows us to share our adventures and tell the stories that lay behind the furniture and curiosities. It also enables us to share with you upcoming events such as our fairs, or the launch of new lines such as our canine additions and our ever expanding sign collection within the Trunk family.

 Caroline sees the potential in the furniture pieces that we sell and Dave is the fixer. He has the skills to bring them back to life instead of looking a little tired and faded. In fact Dave is head of furniture and paint and Caroline is responsible for the smaller accessories such as the small wooden boxes, stools, boxes, gifts and our best selling sign collection and Tommy heads up the canine collection (well that's how it works most of the time!)

And don't forget to come and find us at Fairs and Brocantes throughout Southern England. We look forward to meeting you.
