Ember Gate came about through my interest in kitchen gardening and my desire to acquire and use beautiful vintage tools instead of the brightly coloured, mass-produced tools on offer today. After a couple of years discovering and collecting authentic horticultural treasures and gardenwares, I realised my passion had fast outgrown my own gardening requirements and so decided to share my preloved acquisitions and offer some of them for sale.
I specialise in sourcing home and garden wares that have been designed, created and crafted for purpose, brimming with character, originality and a bit of history. Pieces that have stood the test of time and have a story to tell. I seek out decorative planting containers or repurpose wooden, metal and enamel vessels that might not have been originally intended for garden use. I source stock based on what I would want to have in my own living space, scouring reclamation yards, antique shops and trade fairs to bring you beautiful heritage home and gardenalia.
