Those of us who love a bit of vintage and retro spice in our homes, probably love stores like Cath Kidston, Orla Kiely, and Laura Ashley to name but a few.
That’s cool if you’ve got the purse for it, but in this economic climate many of us haven’t, and if that’s you, I’ve got just the job!
Grab your coat and get on down to your local charity shops, boy can you bag yourself some great finds. Then you’ve got the likes of car boot sales and thrift markets. For these my top tip is wait till closing that’s when you grab the bargins they want to get rid of and you want to pocket!
The hottest thing with this kinda vintage thrift is, it’s unlikey anyone else will have it, you can pat yourself on the back because it was cheap and you were eco- friendly! Best yet if the kids, ( or being honest me ), break it it didn’t cost the earth!
So here are just a few of my finds, I’ve gotta be honest I need to scale down!
