Bargain of the Week

What a darling of a bargain! I bought this beautiful 1930s/40s display cabinet for just £26.

It's going to display my pretty china tea sets and other vintage regalia. I've already got my 'crafty' head on .... I'm going to cheer it up a bit by lining the back of the cabinet with these three vintage gift wrap designs I found at Art Cards Cornwall

More photos to follow as I make progress ... x

I'm so pleased with how the display cabinet looks with all our little bits and pieces of china. I think the vintage wrapping paper works really well as a background lining too.

Grandma's tea set. I hope she approves!
The pair of ornaments at the front were a wedding gift

Set of pretty floral place mats on the left, I purchased from Juliette Golab, Etsy

£2.99, set of vintage coasters off Ebay


  1. It's got to be the bargain of the century! LAST century!!! :-) I love it. Très chic. Looking forward to seeing all your fab bits 'n' pieces displayed within. I really like the large printed rose paper the best (middle one). I would love something like that in my lounge but unfortunately Simon's record deck is housed in the one place I'd put it. :(

  2. It's the bargain of the century! I'm very pleased it's found its way to your home. I know you'll put it to good use. Can't wait to see your display. A great find. Well done!

  3. Thanks! I'm going to use all three designs - one behind each shelf. They all co-ordinate so I think it'll give it a quirky but pretty look x

  4. All your pieces look great. I recall the retro daisy cup & saucer. Was it 'Dolly Days' or something like that?

  5. this is lovely! yes a great bargain, and the floral paper is very pretty! xx
