We’re back home after a long-overdue trip down to London and Brighton. The Big Smoke has inspired our Etsy List selection for this week!

We’ve found a really quirky item for this week’s Charity Vintage post. We don’t think we’ve ever come across a Master sardine tin opener and fish server before… but, if you’re a big eater of tinned fish, then what could be better? It looks good and does the job perfectly.
It’s currently up for sale by Pilgrims Hospices* with a buy it now price of £10 and a further £1.99 for postage.
*Pilgrims Hospices in East Kent run 3 hospices to help and support families and patients suffering from terminal illnesses. Their aim is to optimise the profits from items donated to their charity
We’ve selected this gorgeous little item for this week’s favourite buy.
It’s from the Emilia range designed by Raija Uosikkinen for Arabia Pottery of Finland. She worked for the company from the 1960s onwards and produced some wonderful designs. The colourful preserve pots with stylised fruit decoration and the plates depicting the Kalevala legend also spring to mind.
This particular piece is a lidded sugar bowl… also perfect for jewellery, keys, loose change – or any small precious thing!
We really don’t come across pieces from this range too often, so it’s lovely to handle them. They’re incredibly detailed, but also have a charming simplicity. Coming to the shop soon!
