    Where the the past makes a great present

    Antique/vintage gifts are so much more interesting than brand new ones

    If you’re one of those people that like to buy gifts which are both original and unique, then a trip down the high street is possibly the worst idea possible. And buying antique doesn’t mean you’re buying some dark wood coffee table that no one will want, or a large, heavy and unattractive lamp that your friends are going to want to hide in the loft. Antiques gifts cover a wide range, and not all of them are purely for aesthetic purposes, some still have a functional use, a unique alternative to today’s made-quickly-out-of-man-made-materials products which won’t stand the test of time.
