Miscellany - SOLD 

Miscellany is our term for the things that we love to stock that don’t really fit any category. They might be horticultural, such as old rhubarb forcers and cloches, or salvaged, such as chimney pots and cast iron pumps, or just not easily defined by other headings, such as oil jars and weather vanes.
