Make it a Vintage Christmas!

We have just added lots of really super vintage items to the website! There is still plenty of time to treat yourself, a friend or a loved one to something beautifully unique and vintage for Christmas. We have a vast array of goodies in all guises for all pockets including a stunning French red Provence eiderdown, which the little Scottie dog has taken a fancy to!
There's also this beautiful watercolour of a crocus bowl, it is so very pretty.
There are a host of homewares to help dress your home this Christmas, including a holly and birds tin...
...a seriously sweet kitten waste bin...
...and a pair of utterly charming bookends in the form of prancing ponies.
For those of you who like to keep those hands busy, we have a superb 1930s needlework book in mint condition...
...and a delightful French sewing case.
If you enjoy traditional games at Christmas, then the very rare Ring its Neck hoop-la game is definitely for you! A cheeky turn of phrase and spelling aside, as cat lovers, we see the funny side of the pun!
We have a sweet and pretty eiderdown, covered in baskets of roses, anemones, dahlias and orchids; sweet dreams for everyone this Yuletide!
Oh, and what is as cosy as an eiderdown? Why, an eiderdown tea cosy! This unused vintage cosy comes in a pretty floral chintz eiderdown fabric!
This floribunda rug is abundant with beautiful roses, narcissus, peonies and magnolias.
A magical fairy woodland scene.
We will be posting out orders all this week and next so they will arrive for Christmas. The online shop is open throughout Christmas and the New Year so just in case Santa doesn't bring you what you want, or you find a Vintage Home gift token under the tree, then you will be able to treat yourself whenever you like.
