Let's Celebrate!


A very happy Valentine's Day to you all! Today is also the day Vintage Home celebrates it's birthday and to mark this very special occasion of THREE YEARS online, we will be announcing a super Prize Draw - it's absolutely FREE to enter and will see THREE lucky visitors win a fabulous enduring gift! Make sure you check back in a few days to read all about it!

We'll also be adding dozens and dozens and dozens of gorgeous Vintage Finds - all absolutely authentic and all thrillingly beautiful too! In fact there are so many that we'll be adding them several at a time over the next few weeks. Here is a little taster of those to come...

Vintage fabric lamp shades...

Beautiful and unique pieces of furniture such as this strawberry pink and roses cupboard...

...a gorgeous occasional table - too pretty to cover up...

...a classic paisley decorated chest of drawers...

...and this stunning antique, handpainted French bed set.

Something cute and cuddly in the form of this darling terrier rug...

...and something warm and snuggly like this pretty rose strewn eiderdown!

There will be a new feature on a great writer called Gail Abbott - an author of no less than nine books on interior styling. Her work regularly appears in a huge range of 'the glossies' and she has travelled the world, discovering the secrets of elegant room design, harnessing natural light and capturing the beauty of modest and humble things.

You may be aware that we recently announced we had increased the speed and capacity of the website to meet the demand from evergrowing visitor numbers over the last year. Well, this has proved quite an involved task and has required almost one quarter of the entire website to be rewritten to improve performance. This work is still ongoing so please bear with us if you experience any glitchess in the meantime - it'll be worth it!

So, lots happening and lots of gorgeous things to see over the next few weeks...be sure to visit us regularly and don't miss out!

Clare and Mike
