We’re always on the lookout for vintage camping & picnic wares.
Our favourite purchase in the last week has to be this fabulous set of camping chairs.
The 4 canvas chairs – dating from the 1940s or 50s – come in their own carrying case.
This case has corner holes and converts into a sturdy, wooden-topped table.
We’ll add them to our Great Outdoors section sometime soon.
This department has been popular with our customers this summer – here’s a few of our favourite items that have passed through … or are currently for sale.
This set of lovely, sunshine yellow cups & saucers went to Norway recently…
Their new owner, Camilla Elene Erøy, blogged about her new acquisition
Another of our customers bought a few vintage accessories from us for her new VW camper van hire business.
We started our own camper van fund a while ago – which has slowly been building up. It will make our holidays, weekend breaks & buying trips a bit easier… especially with a large dog to consider.
We even have a camper van ‘bottom drawer’.
This cool box and melamine plates are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their new home… a vintage, two tone green VW camper van…
… along with a selection of cosy blankets & throws.
We also picked this set up yesterday on a day trip to Ilkley. We think it’s destined for our bottom drawer – but how many melamine plates will we need?!
We got it from a lovely little shop that we’ve just discovered. It’s called Cakewalk and it’s tucked away on Trafalgar Road. It’s only a small shop but it manages to display a great selection of vintage and recycled fashion & homewares. Well worth a visit if you’re ever in the area.
