Retro oasis deep in the New Forest.

The Old Home Store has been out and about again today - this time collecting 26+ Mexicans from the New Forest.

Don't worry, these little guys don't need passports as they are 60s/70s time-travellers from the studio of Toni Raymond. Yes, they are the iconic West Country Raymond sugar shakers and cruets.

They have come to live with your truly, but they are resting in their box, and a pic will appear on the website very soon.

Their previous owner, Sophie, runs the quirky & kitsch Pineapple Retro from her fab pad. Well worth a visit to her website - or to her shop, which she is setting-up in her garden.

The Mexicans are apparently all called Malcolm.

Sorry Malcolm!

Pretty good likeness of Sophie on her wonderful logo.
