We’re always on the lookout for new shops to explore and recently came across The Laundry.
At first glance, the name and tag line (Homewares, Jam & Pyjamas) can be a bit confusing, but rest assured, this is a quaint online shop selling all sorts of homeware goodies. The jam part of the equation stems from the fact that the shop is run by jam-maker and author, Gloria Nichol; there’s a section covering jam-related products, including the chance to buy some lovely little vintage French style jam pots.
As ever, it’s the vintage items that mostly caught our eye at The Laundry shop – here are some of our favourite picks:
This vintage Pyrex bowl is a lovely pinky-coral colour and has a gooseberry design. It’s priced at £19 and would be really useful for the kitchen.
I love making handmade chocolates as gifts and this vintage chocolate mould is far nicer than my modern moulds. The heavy metal mould makes six bars of chocolate, with overlapping coiled swirl patterns on, which remind of licorice wheels. It’s £22. Even when not in use, it would be lovely just left out displayed on a shelf as a decorative item.
You can never have enough storage tins and this pink vintage metallic tin is a lovely size and shape. It’s £19. If blue is more your colour, then they also have a blue floral metallic tin in stock too that is equally nice.
