Buying's fun

We have started buying some 'stuff' for the pub. Recent purchases include: -

An old mahogany bank counter out of an Allied Irish bank that we're going to use for the bar.

Various club chairs (see above) for both the pub & the rooms.

A couple of gazelle heads (we also bought a crocodile head but thought better of it).

Some fantastic oil paintings that came out of an old gents club & ended up in a reclamation yard - all with some damage that is currently being repaired (photo's to appear later).

Some great Gesso mirrors.

Lots of 'country scene' prints including a set of 4 prints depicting 'The first ever steeple chase'
