Vintage Hints and Tips

Introducing our very own home Vintage Hints and Tips page. We have been trawling old magazines and books to bring you a smile and some very practical ideas! Often the old ones were the best! Over the years simple solutions get forgotten so each month we will add to this collection for your enjoyment. We’ll also be adding a few recipes to try too. If you’d like to get involved send us your Vintage household Hints and Tips and maybe a picture of the publication you saw it in, please use the contact form on the right.
