Pop Art Pineapple Print
If you love neon art signs, you’re in luck because there are plenty of amazing pieces dotted around the shop. I spotted a few bearing witty words from Love to Addict, Imagine and Gypsy while another said Rock ‘N Roll.
Addict Neon Art Sign
Look up, and you can admire the glam glass chandeliers dangling down. Elsewhere are some vintage drum shade standing lights, mid-century lighting and industrial table lamps. On the walls are quite a few ornate golden painted grand mirrors which would look amazing hung over a traditional fireplace.
Industrial Table Lamp
You’ll also come across an assortment of vintage pieces which could be used as decorative objects in your home or inside a curiosity cabinet. From sculptures of animal heads to antique shop dummies, retro telephones, sixties glass ashtrays and a Gothic cross with Jesus, there’s plenty to keep you amused.
Vintage Objects of Interest
You can sit down and rest on one of the retro leather armchairs or patchwork fabric upholstered seats. Take a look at the retro and modern sideboards which will be displaying the merchandise which is quite beautiful. The cute Japanese influenced ornaments, bright glass vases and attractive enamel mugs were very colourful.
Tann Rokka Shop Interiors
The store is located next to the bridge, and the shop is housed in a disused train station. Outside you’ll see bunches of flowers for sale. Step inside, and you’ll discover that the interiors are much larger than you thought. To the right is a counter selling perfume, candles, incense and other beautiful smelling gifts. In the front portion of the store, you’ll see the glass chandeliers on the ceiling, and ornate mirrors hung on the whitewashed walls.
Towards the back, you will find a display of artwork, shelves filled with glass vases and an arrangement of glass ashtrays from the sixties and seventies. The backroom has a mix of furniture, lighting and decorative objects. Take time to browse each room, so you don’t miss anything unusual!
