Both Joanna & Lou have magpie eyes, and are always on the look out for the interesting, unusual, quirky things to fill the shop, be it from private sales, auction houses, car boots and vintage fairs....even skips have been known to be investigated! The love of vintage, the thrill of seeing the potential of a tired worn out piece and the pleasure in bringing it back to life are what makes them both tick and why they enjoy our job so much.
Joanna and Lou have turned their passion into a lifestyle choice of work. They also offer painted furniture commissions, having undertaken painted kitchen chairs for Scone Palace, whisky boxes for shop displays, full coffee shop table & chairs re-vamps and many home pieces around Perthshire.
Underneath The Arches also source specific items for our customers, so if there's something in particular you're on the hunt for just let them know and they will track it down!
Joanna & Lou's path finally crossed at of all places a car boot sale, with their love of a similar passion a friendship was struck up and in Nov 2014 they joined forces and opened UNDERNEATH THE ARCHES. Cramming it with a feast full of goodies, nostalgia at things from the past, and an appeal for both men and women, old and young. They pride themselves in the laying out of the shop, with a high attention to detail, the use of seasonal colours, and marrying furniture with accessories to complement each other.
Their aim is to provide the customer with a somewhat magical experience... In the words of the song underneath the Arches.......where we dream our dreams away.
