Cheers! Antique shop sees rush to deck out homemade bars in crisis

The Dog House Antiques, based in Bloxwich, , has been selling items ranging from neon signs to beer mats.
Aales assistant Fay Rutter believes this trend has been spurred on by people having more spare time during lockdown, which has allowed them to carry out DIY projects such as converting sheds into bars and bringing a holiday feel to their homes.
Fay said: "This is what our customers have been saying. People weren't allowed to pubs during lockdown so they have been making their own in their gardens."
The shop, which is based on Bloxwich Road and has been running for 33 years, closed for 12 weeks during lockdown.
More Covid-19 coverage:
Fay said she was "amazed" at the amount of customers attending to buy "bar staff" once the shop reopened.
"Everyone has been buying pub-related items," she said.
"No one has been going on holiday so people have been making bars to create that holiday feel in their garden.
"People have been buying signs related to beer and bars, neon signage, bottle tops and bells to call last orders."
The Dog House sales a variety of quirky and unique items which can cater for a wide range of tastes.
