In 2010 something amazing came into my life. Something so beautiful and precious.

The above photo shows the first set of leaded light window sashes I ever acquired. One day I was at the local dump when I saw some fool throwing them away. I rescued as many as I could out of sentimentality not thinking of monetary value. It snowballed from there. As a hobby for next five years I bought and sold sets locally. Something else came into my life that year. Ten years on…

I now sell full-time as an internet order based business having discarded a well paid job with sick/holiday pay and a pension but happy as Larry shipping this stuff all over the world! I continue to add to my collection…

I had dreams of employing staff and renting expensive London showroom space. Now is the first time I feel lucky not to be in that situation.

Working from home has never been that bad. Of course there is someone else very special who helps make home/work/life bearable but she is behind the camera!

Most are still for sale. From top left R1016f, R1063a, B1063a, B1063b, R1018a, R1018b, R1018c, R944a, R1003d sunray from a set of five. Incidentally none are from the dump. I paid for these!

As always I have salvaged doors and hundreds of salvaged windows listed for sale on my website. In the past five years I started offering a bespoke service whereby something can be made new to your exact size. Explore! https://leadedstainedglass.com/
