… but I hope you enjoy looking at what customers have done with salvaged window panels I have rescued and sent to them. Although I believe original leaded lights should be maintained within the original properties I am pleased that they can at least be reused in the following ways.
“Hi Richard, Probably 4 years ago I came over and bought some glass from you for our little garden house. I knew I would be a long time sending you pictures I promised. The roof is a green roof, those 6 pack plugs which the garden centre plants come in, filled with compost, fitted into the roof frame and covered in gravel once planted, in it’s 3rd year. More or less put the roof on and filled the sides afterwards. Anyway, now finished, a lovely space and a great use for windows. Best wishes for your continued success and many thanks for providing the raw materials for our ‘Glass House’ great for having coffee in the fresh air on especially on colder days.” Graham – Oxfordshire.
Here’s set R931 which I sent to Tara in Virginia, USA …
… and here’s what she did!
Stuart’s summer house – Putney, UK.
internal side (R618)
Carla – North Carolina, USA.
What I like about the above photo is the contrast between new and old. Carla has mounted the window sashes exactly as I sent them – she has not repainted the frames. She also chose an art deco design which I think suits the linear arrangement of everything in the room.
Louis – Tennessee, USA. (R370b)
Colin from Hitchin “I thought you might be interested to see how I used the piece of leaded stained glass I recently purchased from you. The oak door is original to the house and dates from 1926 and I have removed the top section of the door to let in the leaded light. The hall is now much less gloomy. I attached the stained glass to a frosted glass double glazed panel using bathroom translucent sealant before installing using offcuts from the bit of door I removed and sealant.”

Mike says: “…looking as if it hasn’t been touched for 100 years. And that is a comment from a neighbour. Several people – some strangers have complimented the result.”
Today is Labor Day in the United States. The USA is my biggest market group after the UK so I hope everyone across the pond who is able to have the time off is enjoying the day. Thanks to Rosanne from Medford, MA who spent time today sending me this photo from her porch. The […]
Regular visitors to my website may notice some changes. For the past month I have been relisting all of my stock onto a new eCommerce platform (as well as adding lots of newly acquired stock which had been backlogged!) The aim as always is to make it easier to find what you want within my […]
This week I unwrapped this pair: I had received as part of a job lot. When I purchased I thought the background (non coloured) glass was plain having seen poor quality photos from the seller. I thought at most I would be able to extract some nice coloured centre parts. I was delighted to find […]
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 […]
Having always traded as an internet order business there is little difference to how I am operating in the current circumstances. To demonstrate this thought I would show everything I have packaged and despatched this week. Unless stated otherwise all packages were sent to the USA, using FedEx.
