back story

Back story

Kevin, a northern chef, met Jenni, a southern book editor, at the beginning of the 21st century. Sharing a passion for history and an admiration of interesting interiors, they travelled to as many places in the world as they could afford, to develop their style and learn a bit about business.

By 2010, with their three children in tow, Kevin and Jenni founded a business in the East of England, selling decorative antiques and homewares at local markets and county fairs.

The ensuing decade+ of hard work, steep learning curves, and constant buying and selling, have enabled Kevin and Jenni to grow what has become the family business – HAIRSINES – into a charming showcase of decorative antique homeware, paintings, carvings and primitive folkart.

Quarried from a blend of international trade fairs, street brocantes, vide greniers, flea markets and private collectors, HAIRSINES' stock aspires to the aesthetic:

...the timeless beauty of age-worn materials...
