Last week I went to The Festival of Antiques at Peterborough Showground for a vintage shopping trip and bought some orange lovelies! Mostly from the same sellers too!
All of these except the Le Creuset pot, came from Holland and sold from a lovely Dutch couple (who were very patient with my daughter who re-arranged their stand into perfect lines and colour matching!).
My favourite item is the large 1960/70s Dutch Tomado vintage tin in psychedelic patterns. I have wanted one for ages in this size so was happy to find it. I have no idea where it will go and what will be stored inside – for now it is sitting on the floor beside the sideboard looking lovely.
I can never resist a basket and this small one in orange sits perfectly in my cupboard filled with goodies. I have a few now like this with food stored inside, creating a lovely pantry feel.
The biscuit tin dates from the late 1950s and already has biscuits in ready for the family to enjoy. It fits perfectly with the kitchen and I love how it breaks up the floral scheme which is everywhere.
The lunch box is also Dutch and something I just could not resist. I have no idea what I will do with it, it may just sit here with pens in! The colour is lovely and I love that it has a handle (the others there didn’t).
Finally I am using the Le Creuset pot as a planter. This came from a local charity shop and isn’t that old but hey, I couldn’t stop myself!
I also bought two striped vintage pillowcases which need a good iron before I photo them. These will go in my daughter’s bedroom which I will share soon.
What have you bought recently?
