Here’s a taster of the things we picked up recently.
For starters there’s a very nice wall mountable first aid tin – these are always popular – and this one has just the perfect amount of wear.
Moving onto tin number 2 ( with the ‘private detective’ decoration ). It’s called ‘The Inside Job’ and originally contained a decorating kit – paintbrush, sponges, paint scrapers, sanding sheets etc. Inside job – geddit?
The 1950s wooden cabinet is a lovely little piece that we’ve put up for sale in Picture House Antiques.
Vintage drinking glasses like these are always sought after – especially when in perfect condition – and in complete sets.
These must have been put away in a cupboard about 50 years ago – to emerge, blinking into the daylight last week!
Although they’ve been superseded by modern technology, colourful typewriters like this have devoted fans. This Olympia model comes with its original leatherette carry case.
Another item that has more modern counterparts is this 1960s/70s hairdryer – and this one’s a mobile model!
It’s boxed & appears pretty much unused. It’s Mary Quant style print cap is fab!
And finally – back to school with these chalkboards and teachers cane. The board on an easel would add a vintage touch to a nursery or child’s bedroom – the old writing slate is great for hanging in a kitchen and writing your shopping list/reminders.
