We will always encourage vintage and secondhand shopping as a way to look after the environment and to give goods a new purpose and a second life, rather than just being discarded.
The Goods In General Store has such a veritable feast of vintage delight to fill your home, it was hard to pick a favourite – but we love the victorian stoneware pots that would be great for vases, just for display on shelf, or as pot for utensils.
Everything in my shop has a story and I like it to be authentic or original. Learning the history of who made and used these objects fascinates me. I also do my best to find, fix and pass things on.
Designed by Nathalie Lete in collaboration with Anthropologie, this handpainted vessel lends endless charm and whimsy to a fresh bouquet or botanical arrangement.
About Nathalie Lete Once a member of Mathias et Nathalie, a duo renowned for their cardboard paintings and expressionist sculptures, French art and designer Nathalie Lete now works as a solo artist, creating paintings, ceramics, textiles, jewelry, books and toys centered on themes of fantasy, humor and childhood memories.
Drawing on classic forms from Chinese porcelain vases, our modern Jade Glass Vases are made with flecks of gold melded into the glass, so they’re beautifully light-catching. The vases perfectly support a bouquet for easy arranging and look equally appealing when empty.
This chalk finish crackle glaze jug from Dunelm is a beautiful little piece of homeware. Adorn a sideboard with flowers, part of a table setting with freshly made lemonade, on a shelf as an ornament – it will add texture and calm to an interior styling.
At just £15 it’s an easy purchase to use yourself or give as a gift.
Use along side other minimal neutral pieces (see below) from Dunelm to create a calm, modern cottage feel.
