Aired and pressed vintage baby clothes

Well, hello AGAIN!

Second lot of pictures today! I even know what I want to do for my next two posts... but I will try and hold it all in.

Anyway, this post is just some more pictures of the vintage baby clothes I posted before. The pictures were a bit naff last time - I'd just draped the clothes over the back of the sofa. 

I've gone to a bit more effort here to show them off better! 

I bought some little hangers, aired the clothes and carefully ironed them (not that you can tell on some of them!)

I've only put pictures up of a few clothes but in more detail than previously. The coat hangers are a tad too big too.

Not being a parent I have no idea what size little person they'd fit. I'll be taking a couple up to my family in Norfolk next weekend and, if her parents are happy with it, I'll see if they fit my beautiful little niece.

For now, ciao... maybe

First Aid, vintage style


I've had this vintage first aid case for a while and have posted one or two pictures of it on Twitter and Instagram, today I'm just putting them all together here. 

We found it in Norwich, the case is mid-century but the dressings and plasters come from the 60s/70s and 80s (some have production dates).

The date on this leaflet is 1957.

Thanks for looking. If you're interested in using or buying this (or anything else) get in touch!

New stuff, new post & teasers!


Well. It seems people love vintage baby clothes! What with work, uni and Den of Vintiquity, I've not yet got round to sorting them out or deciding what I want to do with them. Hopefully, there is an exciting project being organised for them at the moment though: watch this space!  

Anyway, I'm off to What the Butler Saw to take some new old items in. 

Some lucky couple have bought our hand-painted (Farrow & Ball French Grey) settle, so we have a space to fill! 
Coming soon is a large piece of furniture which I'm really excited about. Beautiful but unusual - I think it will be very popular with the lovely folk of Leigh. 

Today though I will be taking a few smaller items in. such as:

1930s knitting counter/needle gauge.

77x Instamatic camera. Not spud though. He just wanted help me take photos.

Vintique cameras. I love them so much!

Two come with their original cases. 

I love this. I think it looks amazing. 

Although we've not been able to go for the last two years, my husband and I love going to the BBC Proms in the Park. It's amazing. This Londaire Portable Pub is PERFECT for Proms in the Park. 

That's it for the moment.

I'll be at Den of Vintiquity for a while today (inside What the Butler Saw, Leigh Road, Leigh on Sea). As it went so well last time, if anything is bought through me (from my unit) there'll be a 10% discount!

Thanks for looking
