This week the top 6 items are:
1960s linen table mats which are covered in Scandi style daisies. We have these with both yellow and pink daisies. They would be brilliant for your table or made up into a cushion or bag.
John Clappison Hornsea Cat salt and pepper pot ornaments from the 1970s. This stunning pair are in their original box, making them even more special and desirable. They are ideal to display as ornaments as well as for use at your dinner table and their minimal classic design is emulated by today's contemporary designers. You definitely can't beat the quality and craftsmanship of the original thing though, so it's no wonder these are creating a stir on the yay retro! website.
Vintage Deer salt and pepper pot ornaments, made in the 1950/60s many people now collect vintage deer ornaments from this period as they are so kitsch. These again would be fantastic as ornaments as well as for use at your dining table. We think these lovely pieces were made in response to the film Bambi which was made in 1942 and regularly re-released ever since!
Vintage Flower Power bed throw from the 1960/70s, this is an absolute top notch, high quality genuine vintage throw which is still bright and ideal for use on your bed. It is smothered in the most fantastic pink & blue daisy pattern! A very, very rare find indeed and definitely worth snapping up!
