As the Autumn leaves begin to fall and the nights grow chilly, we have been as busy as the proverbial squirrels, gathering together a veritable feast of vintage delights for the Vintage Home website. Included in the latest batch of loveliness are pretty eiderdowns, stunning patchworks and a variety of unique and interesting decorative homewares, in fact there are new additions in every section of the shop - the colourful, crocheted throw featured above is just one of the super textiles which will keep you lovely and warm. A huge thank you to everyone who has recently made a purchase and for your kind messages. We hope you can pop along for a browse soon.
Oh, and don't forget, a brand new series starts on Channel 4 next month: Kirstie's Crafty Britain. This sees Kirstie Allsopp visiting various country fairs and taking part in craft competitions after a crash-course in each skill.
Here is Kirstie with our 1920s O-So-Silkie Needlework Sign.
A few of the latest vintage goodies to grace the shop are shown below; this duck egg blue and cream reversible eiderdown is so very, very pretty!
