This selection of Vintage Apothecary Bottles with original labels from JJ Thomas & Son Dispensing Chemist in Rochdale will bring the finishing touch to any vintage lovers shelf of collectibles!
Each bottle shows the original contents, from Tincture of Myrrh to Pure Isinglass, names we would rarely see in modern times and so evocative of a bygone era. Priced individually, some have original corks (as stated), and signs of the original contents can be seen staining the glass of others.

I would definitely recommend this store and online store to others.
I bought the gorgeous grey gustavian mirror from Source for the Goose and I’m so happy with my purchase. I originally saw this on another website but it was almost double the price on there!! I was incredibly impressed with the excellent customer service I received when picking up the order. Jill went above and beyond to ensure that I was happy with my purchase. I wish the store was closer to me as I’ve fallen in love with so many items on there! I would definitely recommend this store and online store to others.
I was very pleased with the table runner: the colours were exactly as shown in the pictures as Jill explained to me and the parcel arrived even earlier than expected. Very good service, would use again. Thank you Jill.
I have bought a number of items from this really lovely store and have never been disappointed. It is such a good store and you will find plenty of stylish and interesting things for the home. The service is always exceptional and it’s a pleasure to shop there.
Always a treat to visit the shop in person and have a chat with Jill
Always a treat to visit the shop in person and have a chat with Jill, however I recently moved away, but that doesn't mean I cant visit the website and see all her lovely treasures & trinketry to buy... And she send its lovingly wrapped up in the post too ! Thank you Jill. XX.
Amazing , brilliant, fantastic and extremely helpful, sums up this amazing shop.
Jill sourced a bed for me, painted, upholstered and arranged a courier service to have it delivered to me London. What more could you possibly ask. Thank you Jill .
Really good shop! Lots of interesting homeware products from paint to rugs and tables etc. All curated by a lovely owner who was chatty and welcoming. Well displayed in/out policy for covid times. We were in holiday so only got some cards but have details for the online shop for rug buying when we get home!!
Such a lovely shop, plenty of new items and previously loved furniture which Gill the owner sometimes up grades with Annie Sloan paint. Gill is a lovely person, and it's always a tonic to call into her shop.
