It’s probably a weekly occurrence. The phone rings or an e mail pops up with a request for an old boat to be used as a planter for flowers, or maybe a prop for a theatre production. We recently took an order online for a couple of our rustic bookcases which led to me having to speak to the buyers regarding delivery. They were on their way to a theatre to be used in a play where 2 sailors would be rowing them across the stage. We had to refund, as their use is really light nautical décor. The good news is we are now sourcing old row boats and dinghies for such use and as planters but outside Dorset it will be a “collection only” service. Here’s one we acquired yesterday!
