Big Christmas giveaway
Christmas will be coming early for someone this year as our favourite vintage-loving friends have grouped together to offer one lucky reader a whole load of goodies!
Up for grabs in this unique Christmas selection box are some gorgeous presents, including:
Pin-up girl cushion love from Brighton POD.
Standing for Promoting Original Design, Brighton POD acts as a shop window for some of the country’s most exciting design talents and has donated this gorgeous pin-up girl cushion by Crumpet and Skirt, as featured in our retro homewares article.
Vintage floral apron love from Wooden Hill Vintage.
Emily Inglis opened Lewes’ Wooden Hill Vintage boutique in October, selling gorgeous vintage fashions, homewares and handmade cards in a unique shop space. She’s wrapped up a very cute floral vintage apron as your Christmas gift.
Heart locket necklace love from Kate & Aud.
It’s no secret that we love this two-storey vintage boutique in the North Laine. Full to the brim with party dresses, Aran knits, leather satchels, kitsch jewellery and more, a trip to the shop always it feels like you’ve been let loose in a very glamorous dressing-up box. And their heart locket pendant will go with anything.
Vintage Penguin book stack love from Fanny & Lil.
Mother and daughter team Sue and Sarah Leeves, aka Fanny & Lil, “love to recycle beautiful and useful pieces”, from vintage kitchenwares to books, and also offer a sourcing service. They’re giving away a set of three vintage Daphne du Maurier classics for your reading pleasure.
Vintage cream tunic dress love from Vintage Owl Boutique.
Jennie and Cassie sell a stunning selection of vintage fashion, from the 1920s to 1980s, both online and at local events. Check them out at the Frock Me! fair on 28 November and Loved, Worn & Reborn on 5 December. This pretty cream embroidered dress would look great with a skinny tan belt.
Reclaimed notebook and pencils love from Yukka & Stamp.
Projects duo Yukka & Stamp, made up of couple Charlotte and James, bring unused objects out of retirement by turning them into plant pots, cactus holders, notebooks, bunting and more. This “Indie Fish” notebook, with Woolworths pencil crayons, is one of Charlotte’s favourites, reminding her of an Eighties’ shell suit…
