I’ve never been to Disneyland but can imagine if I went as a kid, I would get the same excited feeling I get now walking into The Old Flight House.
From upcycled lamps made with gas canisters to opulent honewares to 1950s gowns – it has a vast amount of beautiful things for sale. I wrote about The Old Flight House a while ago and decided to do another post after visiting the place on my week off work.
It’s a warehouse style building with a big open space counter when you walk in. Walls painted white, with light shining through in places. The space is divided up into units, each owned and stocked by different sellers. It’s like visiting 20 or so vintage/interior shops in one go.
When I worked at Emmaus Oxford running its furniture shop, we used to have lots of people doing days out visiting our charity shop in Oxford, Witney Warehouse and then up here near Bicester. When my old colleague and I visited we even spotted some regulars looking around!
There is a mixture of new and old with prices from low to high (and very high!). Themes coming through from this visit was definitely glassware, botanicals and wood. But the joy of this shop is it’s ever changing curated units mean visit by visit there is always some newly styled pieces to get excited about.
