Glorious Colour and Style for the New Season at The Vintage Home Shop

We have recently re-stocked the Vintage Home Online Store with some of the most beautiful items, all in glorious, rich colours - just perfect for the Autumn season and its cooler temperatures. Our favourite find is this truly stunning vintage needlepoint bag. It bears detailed hand sewn work with the most amazing design of a woodpecker, roses, cherries and blossom.
This isn't one of those dainty little bags that sit over your wrist - oh no, this is a very large bag and comes with an adjustable shoulder strap so it is easy to use and carry around - and trust me, you will want to be seen with this beauty! The rich colours of the wool stand out remarkably against the black background so you will definitely get noticed when you are out and about with it!
Superb colours also abound in the form of an exceedingly pretty, hand sewn floral tapestry.
A PAIR - yes, that's right - a PAIR of immaculate, vintage eiderdowns... magnificent and pretty colours against a black background.
A vintage rosy barkcloth bag.
An Art Deco chenille curtain with one of the finest designs we have seen...
...all in glorious colours.
An early hand sewn beadwork bag - yet more wondrous colours. those turquoise beads are beautiful.
The tiniest 'petit point' roses needlepoint bracelet - how utterly charming!
As well as these super items, we also have a wealth of other vintage and antique treasures in many guises, pale & pretty and practical & pretty - this French postcard album is a thing of beauty...
...and the dainty embroidery on this vanity tray will delight.
These delicate handpainted violets adorn a silk lingerie case, a genuine Victorian boudoir accessory.
A pale yellow eiderdown covered in pretty posies of flowers including sweet peas, carnations and bellis; wonderful!
We hope you enjoy your browse through the shop and don't forget, we are always out and about, seeking those special vintage treasures for the website, so if you are searching for a particular something, why not get in touch and we'll see if we can find it for you...
