Which one of our very special vintage treasures will be joining you this Christmas? We have added a wonderful selection of beautiful vintage to the shop today. There are stunning textiles, gorgeous paintings and prints, pretty homewares and a unique selection of Christmas-themed delights, including the rare festive tin shown above and a 1930s hoopla set is sure to provide fun for all the family.

...featuring two favourite hymns surrounded by flowers.

Guardian angels watch over the children...

...as they play.

Lovers of cats will find it hard to resist our calico kitten...

...and our 'patchwork' cat.

These two Highland terriers are adorable too!

This pretty 'house and garden' rug is delightfully soft and perfect for a light and airy interior.

The 'star' of the show has to be this large, rare and magnificent Barbola mirror...

...those blowsy tulips are even more beautiful in real life!

These are just some of the many delights in store for you now...don't forget our mugs and mousemats for those extra stocking fillers - and all UK orders come with guaranteed delivery in time for Christmas!*

Splendida Italia!

We are thrilled that Pottery Cottage (our home in Oxfordshire before we moved to beautiful Herefordshire earier this year) has been featured in the December issue of Italy's Country Living magazine or 'Vivere Country' as it is known. (It is also featured in the December issue of France's very own Country Living magazine known as 'Vivre a la Campagne'.) We have a magnificent spread and here are just some of the pages from the feature.

The original feature was in the BBC Homes and Antiques magazine in March 2009. However, the Italian and French magazines don't appear to limit the number of pages for their homes and they have featured just about every photo taken so we have a NINETEEN page spread! How super is that?!

This all came as a complete surprise, one of our lovely Italian customers kindly sent me a copy and we have been enjoying the many photos (although translating the text has been a task!)

Having moved to an even older property which we are slowly renovating, most of our very own beloved vintage treasures are residing in boxes for now - seeing all those lovely photos made me want to rip open every box and delve inside to retrieve all of our beautiful textiles, paintings and accessories! But I will have to be patient until we have filled holes, repaired timbers and painted walls and floors.

We also have a 'rave review' in the new VintagExplorer magazine.

Launched in October, the publication covers a three month period and is packed full of interesting features and dates for fairs.

The magazine is available to buy online or can be found on display at various fairs, antique shops and auction houses around the country.

Despite all this excitement, we have found time to seek out more vintage goodies for the website and added some gorgeous things to the shop today, including stunning textiles, superb paintings and a host of individual and special homewares; do drop by if you can!

Pretty Vintage Stock Has Arrived In The Shop Today!

We are pleased to announce that more vintage stock has arrived in the Vintage Home shop today. There is a particularly pretty theme to the textiles and eiderdowns, but don't take our word for it, have a look at the selection below then pop along and see for yourself - but don't miss the stunning embroidered tablecloth shown above.

Roses and garlands adorn this incredibly beautiful pink eiderdown...

Our personal favourite, this darling eiderdown is the epitome of vintage prettiness, with its pale background and dainty posies...

What could be more adorable than this, a pale green eiderdown covered in polka dots and rosebuds..?

...A PAIR of course!

We have several gorgeous vintage rugs, including this rosy stunner!

Anyone for tea? This hand embroidered tea cosy will add pretty cottage charm to your table.

A floral quilt doesn't have to be confined to the bedroom - use it to dress a sofa or chair for comfort and style.
