Updates of the latest additions to the List & other bits and pieces.

There I was rambling on about the capabilities of my web designers when with a rumble of the tummy I potter off South of the river to gorge at the fantastic Captain Corelli's - delicious Italian (Roman) cafe - the alia e olio arrived at the very same time as aforementioned Tekkstyle alongside my brother-in-law. A North-Londoner seeing the brighter side of the city and one of its better eateries; huge bowl of pasta, a rather sickly tutti-frutti ice-cream (a first and last) and an espresso for eight quid! Oh! The sun shone too. A very suitable Thursday.
www.offthelist.co.uk is the result of years of voracious antique buying around the UK; no auction, dealership or junk shop (a favourite haunt) failed to keep a gem buried or kitsch ceramic unpurchased. Subsequently, the house began to bulge at its seems and my more formal selling outlets were never going to be suitable showrooms for the whimsy and delight of my ever expanding collection. The lady in my life, I discovered, began to dig into drawers and siphon off surfaces suitable trinkets for presents and through her unintended genius Off the List was born!
