Vintage Picks for Halloween!

Followers of yay retro! will know that there is nothing about our online vintage shop that is in any way spooky (apart from maybe our great pricing!)...With Halloween coming this week, I did want to feature some apporiate vintage picks, so I've popped them on a black background for added effect ;o)

We have so many lovley things in the shop at the moment which bring to mind this colourful time of year. Along with many of our customers, we love orange and in Autumn this colourway comes into it's own. Choose from orange vintage coffee pots in china, porcelain or enamel, mugs, 70s Staffordshire soup bowls and Poole Pottery plates. The Aegean Poole plate below has been signed by the artist who made it back in the 1970s.

With Halloween's roots being in Celtic harvest festivals, many prefer to concentrate on nature's bounty at this time of year. Again yay retro! comes up trumps with lots of bright floral home wares to choose from, including stunning 1960/70s St Michael trays and vintage tea towels.

We have so many lovely ideas to bring a ray of sunshine to your vintage home, including lots of cups and saucer sets like the Gaydon melamine set below which has recently been reduced in price. Why not team this up with our gorgeous Worcesterware tin - ideal for tea or coffee. We can even combine postage for you. 

If like me you have begun your Christmas shopping, you will love our vintage gift section. Some top ideas might be our mid century orange glass vase or the boxed orange fondue set which has never been used and comes with a set of vintage fondue forks?
