We love these orange stacking chairs for sale by & in support of Arch Stepping Stones Appeal*. They’re currently an unbelievable £1.04 for the job lot of 17 chairs.

You could have 6 dining chairs, 2 bedroom chairs and a set of 4 garden chairs – and still have some leftovers! If you’re anywhere near or willing to drive to Stoke-on-Trent then grab yourself a bargain!

*All monies raised as a result of selling items on eBay will go towards the work that Arch Stepping Stones Appeal does with children and young people who are the ‘forgotten victims of domestic violence’ across Staffordshire and Cheshire.

Charity Vintage: Denmark… a lovely land

'Denmark... a lovely land' vintage children's book

We recently completed our World Dolls Series blog posts. Our series took us to Norway but it didn’t make a detour into any of the neighbouring Scandinavian countries.

Denmark… a lovely land, is set out as ‘a letter from Denmark’. It’s addressed to ‘Nina’ and gives her an insight into the country with the help of a music score, black & white photos and lovely colour illustrations. The book looks to date from the 1950s and was written by Inger Oppenhejm with illustrations by Laus Lauesen.

It’s up for sale by & in support of The Martlets Hospice* at a ‘buy it now’ price of £13.50 with free postage.

*The Martlets Hospice is an independent charity, caring for adults with a life limiting disease where a cure is no longer possible, in the Brighton and Hove area. Specialist palliative care is provided for patients. Support is given to families and carers during the patients’ illness and into bereavement.

Orange vintage Cathrineholm coffee pot for sale on eBay for Charity by & in support of St Luke's Hospice, Sheffield (Ends 22 Feb, 2015 19:31:11 GMT)

We should, in reality, be keeping this beauty to ourselves – but hey, it’s for charity! It’s a vintage Cathrineholm coffee pot in the white on orange Lotus pattern.

It’s up for sale by & in support of St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield* and it’s in really lovely condition. The starting price is only £39.99, but I’m sure it will have a bid by the time this post is live. Cathrineholm coffee pots in this colour and condition regularly sell for around £135 – and the prices keep going up!

We’ve bought & sold a lot of Cathrineholm over the years and have blogged about the range and its designer, Grete Prytz Kittelsen on a few occasions. We’re absolutely gutted that we let a pair of salt & pepper pots go a few years ago – they’re really rare and have only ever come across two sets on our vintage travels.

*St Luke’s Hospice, Sheffield cares for adults of all ages throughout Sheffield who have life-limiting illnesses and support their families. They’re a charity, and all their services are free of charge.

Set of shabby chic red kitchen weights for sale by & in support of Iain Rennie Hospice at Home (Ends 13 Feb, 2015 11:46:01 GMT)

I just love these red vintage kitchen weights. They’re just the right side of shabby chic. They’re perfect for you if you still do all your cooking & baking in imperial measures – Decimalisation? What’s that? ;-)

They’re currently for sale on eBay for Charity by & in support of Iain Rennie Hospice at Home*.

*The Iain Rennie Hospice at Home is a registered charity in the Chiltern area, which offers specialist home nursing care, support and advice for patients with life threatening illnesses. The professional care offered by their teams of nurses enables patients to stay at home through their illness.

Pair of vintaage Ernest Race high stools for sale by & in support of Isabel Hospice (ends 3 Feb, 2015 20:31:32 GMT)

If you’re any good at furniture DIY, here are a couple of doer-uppers you might like to take on as a little project. A pair of well-worn but classic mid century modern high stools designed by Ernest Race.

They’d be perfect for perching at a breakfast bar in a vintage 50s-inspired kitchen… or teamed with the cocktail cabinet we featured last week.

They’re up for sale by Isabel Hospice* and, although there’s still just over 3 days left to bid, they’ve already had quite a lot of interest. They’re currently £41.00 the pair – bargain! – and a mere £7 for delivery but they’d prefer it if the successful buyer collected in person from Welwyn Garden City.

*Isabel Hospice is a charity needing to raise nearly £4 million per annum to provide their free services to the people of eastern Hertfordshire. Their ethos is that they treat the whole person, not simply the illness. They offer a complete hospice service through their team of Community Nurse Specialists, a 16-bed, in-patient hospice, a day hospice, outreach day hospices, hospice at home and a family support and bereavement service.
