May 17, 2013 in Our Vintage Life
Not really much to tell about our last week as I have spent most of it with a very poorly knee. Having had a lump removed last week I havent been able to walk properly since.
So what have I done…listed stock that’s what. I have listed 50 items this week and to be honest I’m now listed out. The highlight? Well it clearly has to be 2 Ladderax units.
Mr YVL bought them last week and they are fab.
Ladderax was designed in 1964 by Robert Heal for Staples of Cricklewood. They are modular storage units designed with ladder supports made from wood or metal. The idea is that they simply float from the floor.
Gosh I would love to keep them but hey….they are up for sale!
Having spent so much time in my office, both children decided they wanted some office action too. They got up early to “sort things out in their office”. They counted money then made cup cakes from Lego. Vintage tea shop me thinks!
The business and our National Vintage Award nomination was featured in the local newspaper and their website. We were very chuffed to say the least and they wrote such nice things about us! Read the actual text here.
On that note, we are 2nd place…and still need your votes!!!! (Which you can do here)
The rest of the week has seen me cooking up some new vintage plans with some other great people. From PR our book “Style your modern vintage home” (which is available to pre-order now!) to vintage workshops, the year ahead sure looks rosey!
What have you been up to? Any thing much vintagey?
