Voucher codes to stock up on vintage kitcheware

It’s been a while but now I’m back for the autumn season and I bring with me Rose and Grey voucher codes, Leekes voucher codes and House of Fraser voucher codes to help you stock up on some inexpensive vintage-look kitchenware. Because, for some reason, I always associate autumn with kitchens, or more specifically food. Just food in general, preferably hot and filling and delicious, and such glorious treats deserve some equally glorious kitchen accessories and bakeware to compliment them…

I recently discovered Rose and Grey voucher codes and they’ve turned out to be a great source of inspiration when it comes to all things vintage. Ok, so some of the items of furniture may be a bit on the pricey side and perhaps limited to special purchases for those of us on a budget, but they have plenty of great value home accessories that are now even cheaper with some online promotional codes – you can currently get 15% off home accessories or 10% when you spend £80 more until 1st October, or you could choose to save an additional 10% in their Warehouse Sale until 23rd September, which is precisely where I found these items…

And now one just for the bakers out there, particularly those bakers who require some vintage-look accessories fitting for any self-respecting bake off. Thanks to current Leekes voucher codes you can save 20% on all bakeware and they’ve got plenty of vintage and retro-style items available, including these three…

House of Fraser can always be relied upon to deliver quality and price, especially in one of their many fabulous sales, and right now you can save up to 30% on the Home Event Sale with House of Fraser voucher codes. Just search for your favourite category, be it kitchen accessories, bakeware or just pots and pans and you’ll be sure to find something that fits your very own specific vintage tastes. I found these three items, but there are hundreds more to browse…

Voucher codes for vintage summer posters and prints

I’m going to have a break from the summer clothes this week and look at something else with a summer theme using the latest Allposters.co.uk voucher codes, Zazzle voucher codes and GB Posters voucher codes. Yes, you might have guessed there is a posters theme to this week’s, er, post, but it’s not just a random collection of vintage art. Today I’ve being searching for particular types of vintage prints, ones with a distinct summer or travel theme. And you’ll be delighted to hear I came up trumps again (both in terms of posters and discounts)…

First up, it’s some current Allposters.co.uk voucher codes because I think they deserve a bit of attention. Firstly, they’ve have a really comprehensive site when it comes to all kinds of posters (you might have already guessed this from their name), especially vintage ones, but their Allposters.co.uk promotional codes are also very generous with the discounts, evident from their current one that saves you 35% on your order. And thirdly, you can not only purchase prints with them, but also organise canvas or framing options too. Anyway, here are three examples I found with a summer vintage theme…


Summertime French Riviera Vintage Poster – was £19.99, now £12.99 with Allposters.co.uk voucher codes



Sweet Bird of Youth Art Print – was £32.99, now £21.44 with Allposters.co.uk voucher codes



Woman Waterskiing Art Print – was £19.99, now £12.99 with Allposters.co.uk voucher codes


GB Posters are another online supplier that have a really excellent range. If you’re a vintage fan you can pick and choose from not only art but classic movie and TV images and your favourite music-themed prints. But today we’re here for the summer and travel art, so using GB Posters voucher codes that get you 12% off your order, I found these three photographic prints with a vintage twist…

PN0153-Beach Huts

Beach Hut Panoramic Art Print – was £14.99, now £13.19 with GB Posters voucher codes


SC0334-VW-CAMPER.jpg

VW Californian Camper Beach Art Print – was £6.99, now £6.15 with GB Posters voucher codes


PH0279-AFRICA-elephant.jpg

Africa Sunset Elephant Maxi Poster – was £4.99, now £4.39 with GB Posters voucher codes


And lastly, a mention for the gorgeous posters and art available through Zazzle. On this site you can not only purchase different kinds of poster and gifts, but you can also buy personalised items, AND sell your own goods if you make this sort of thing yourself. But the very best thing in the context of this post is that they have a category marked ‘vintage travel posters’ which made searching an easy task on my part! With current Zazzle voucher codes you can get free delivery on your order and I found some very beautiful UK-specific vintage travel posters for your enjoyment…

Weston-Super-Mare Vintage Travel Poster

Weston-Super-Mare Vintage Travel Poster - £39.99 + free delivery with Zazzle voucher codes


Vintage Travel,Whitby,Yorkshire Poster

Whitby Yorkshire Vintage Travel Poster - £14.50 + free delivery with Zazzle voucher codes


Vintage travel,Penzance. Poster

Penzance Vintage Travel Poster - £15.85 + free delivery with Zazzle voucher codes


So even if the weather decides to take a turn for the worse, you can still brighten up your surrounding this summer with a few vintage travel posters and prints, especially when the current discounts are this good.

Vintage print voucher codes to brighten up your wardrobe

Something occurred to me when I was putting together last week’s post – the sheer amount of bold vintage prints around right now. So with the help of some Boohoo voucher codes, Oasis voucher codes and Dorothy Perkins voucher codes, this week I’ve compiled a few more in a post that is dedicated to nothing but that - bold vintage prints on a number of different styles. And if you want to take a look at a few more, go and feast your eyes on last week’s selection, especially the Warehouse picks which were the inspiration for this week’s treasure trove.

I’ve tried to include all different sorts of garments but my first saving is all about the dress, because, let’s face it, if you’re looking for vintage prints then dresses are going to feature pretty heavily. The latest Boohoo voucher codes include a discount that saves you 15% on all dresses (non-sale only) until 19th July 2015 and, if you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know that Boohoo rarely disappoints when it comes to vintage and retro-inspired items. But don’t worry if you’re not in the market for a new dress right now - there are other current Boohoo voucher codes that get you 25% off their Holiday Shop and up to 25% off selected tops too. Here are three dresses from their current range that fit this week’s vintage print remit…

Rosie Neon Paisley Twist Back Maxi Dress

Rosie Neon Paisley Twist Maxi Dress – was £20, now £18.50 with Boohoo voucher codes


Amelia Geo Shift Dress

Amelia Geo Shift Dress – was £15, now £12.75 with Boohoo voucher codes


Plus Jamie Floral Bardot Skater Dress

Plus Jamie Floral Bardot Skater Dress – was £22, now £18.70 with Boohoo voucher codes


It had been a while since I’d taken a look at the Oasis voucher codes so this vintage print hunt seemed like the perfect opportunity to revisit them . Let’s just say my instincts were correct because if you click their ‘up to 70% off’ sale deal then you are immediately met with pages and pages of gorgeous colours and designs – a real feast for the eyes, in fact! I’ve picked out these three garments (avoiding dresses this time), but if there’s nothing on this offer that takes your fancy, don’t forget that you can still save 15% with Oasis if you’re a student.


Fluro Painted Rose Short

Fluro Painted Rose Shorts – were £35, now £18 with Oasis voucher codes


Iris Print Blazer

Iris Print Blazer – was £65, now £25 with Oasis voucher codes


Lemon Zest Full Midi Skirt

Lemon Zest Full Midi Skirt – was £55, now £28 with Oasis voucher codes


Another old faithful that never lets me down – the Dorothy Perkins voucher codes page! This time the best offer is one that get you 10% off all purchases, but it’s ALWAYS worth mentioning that Dorothy Perkins online sales are excellent and even if you don’t find anything full-priced that satisfies your vintage urge then there’s still plenty of other discounts to be had all year round. This week I took a look at their jumpsuits page and snuck a sneaky swimsuit in there too…

Floral tie waist jumpsuit

Floral Tie Waist Jumpsuit – was £38, now £34.20 with Dorothy Perkins voucher codes


Girls on Film Navy Kaleidoscope Jumpsuit

Girls on Film Navy Kaleidoscope Jumpsuit – was £49, now £44.10 with Dorothy Perkins voucher codes



Paisley Print Secret Support Swimsuit – was £28, now £25.20 with Dorothy Perkins voucher codes


Adding a few vintage prints to your look is a great way to get that retro feel, especially if you’re not one hundred percent vintage cuts suit your figure, because these days vintage prints aren’t limited to just those particular styles. So why not take this opportunity to add a bit of bold to your wardrobe?

Vintage summer wear for under £20

We’ve now hit the time of year that all bargain hunters love – summer sale season. If you’ve been holding off your summer spending, I’ve taken a look at the latest Apricot voucher codes, La Redoute voucher codes and Warehouse voucher codes to see if there are any REALLY good bargains available. And by REALLY good, I mean items that come in at £20 or less. Because let’s be honest, it feel like summer has only just begun, so you’re still going to get heaps of wear out of all of these…

When it comes to great value dresses, the Apricot voucher codes page is always one of my first stops as their sale and clearance discounts are usually very generous, and let’s not forget the fact that their dresses are gorgeous too. If you search on their ‘up to 55% off selected dresses’ deal you’ll find pages and pages of discounted stock, but when it comes to vintage-inspired summer dresses, I think these three are particularly nice for the price…

Aqua & White Daisy Graphic Shift Dress

Aqua and White Daisy Graphic Shift Dress (was £26, now only £10 with Apricot voucher codes)


Navy Belted Maxi Dress

Navy Belted Maxi Dress (was £29, now £20 with Apricot voucher codes)



Coral Embroidered Maxi Dress
Coral Embroidered Maxi Dress (was £29, now £15 with Apricot voucher codes)


I often check up on the latest La Redoute voucher codes because not only is their range fabulous looking but they also have a great selection of deals available. Today I’ve selected three items from their sale page, but if there’s a full price garment you’ve got your eye on, you can use the La Redoute promotional code that gets you 10% off your order plus free Click & Collect delivery service for extra convenience and value. Anyway, here are my particular La Redoute picks this week…

Printed Stretch Shirt

Mademoiselle R Printed Stretch Shirt (was £29, now £17.40 with La Redoute voucher codes)


Embellished Printed Cotton Voile Wrapover Dress

R Edition Shopping Prix Embellished Printed Cotton Voile Wrapover (was £29, now £14.50 with La Redoute voucher codes)


Long Printed Dress with Plaited Straps

R Edition Shopping Prix Long Printed Dress with Plaited Straps (was £39, now £19.50 with La Redoute voucher codes)


And lastly, there’s no harm in checking out the latest Warehouse voucher codes, especially if they get you bargains such as these. It goes without saying that Warehouse embrace vintage and retro styles with gusto, and if you take a look at their ‘up to 70% off clearance page’ you’ll find many items to choose from. My particular favourites should give you a flavour of what’s on offer and how generous those discounts are…

African Floral Halter Top

African Floral Halter Top (was £32, now £20 with Warehouse voucher codes)


AZTEC PRINT V NECK TOP

Aztec Print V-Neck Top (was £35, now £15 with Warehouse voucher codes)


Wallpaper Floral Skirt

Wallpaper Floral Skirt (was £30, now £18 with Warehouse voucher codes)


These items aren’t restricted to those people with plenty of spare cash hanging around – as you can see from the discounts, there’s still plenty of great value available if you have a vintage suitcase to fill or just need a few key pieces to flesh out your already-fabulous summer wardrobe.

Voucher codes for vintage and retro toys

Something a little bit different this week – I’ve used the latest Early Learning Centre voucher codes, Toucan Box voucher codes and Smyths Toys voucher codes to see if I can find some savings on vintage-inspired toys. Looking for actual vintage toys is a bit beyond my remit I’m afraid – firstly, they’re more the preserve of antique shops than online toy stores, and secondly, they’re probably not that suitable for actually playing with anymore. So instead, I’m looking at retro toys – the sort that go back to basics and remind you of your own childhood. They don’t have to be made out of wood, but it certainly helps!

The Early Learning Centre is the obvious choice for my first stop – as any parent out there knows, they specialise in classic-looking, good quality functional toys that satisfy curious minds. Here you can buy everything from fancy dress and soft baby toys to puzzles and wooden musical instruments. Current Early Learning Centre voucher codes can save you up to 50% on selected items, so I’ve picked out these three that could suit any budget…

View details of ELC Wooden Diner Kitchen- Pink

ELC Wooden Diner Kitchen in Pink – was £150, now £75 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes


View details of ELC Mouth Organ

ELC Mouth Organ – was £3.50, now £2.80 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes


View details of ELC Wooden Maraca

ELC Wooden Maraca – was £5, now £4 with Early Learning Centre voucher codes

Next I’m highlighting an online shop that many of you, even parents, might not have heard of. Toucan Box is an innovative company with a clever idea – they send you different craft boxes for your children to enjoy every month, or on a one off basis. There are themes such as ‘Jurassic Excavation’ and ‘Kings and Queens’ and they have a classic, minimalistic look to them. To be honest, it’s a relief to find this sort of thing that isn’t a tie-in to any recently released movie or TV series! Using current Toucan Box voucher codes that get you 10% off your order when you spend £30 or more, I’ve selected these three packages to give you an example of what they can offer…

build, colour and decorate your rocket for imaginative play

Paint-A-Rocket Playhouse Set – was £34.95, now £31.46 with Toucan Box voucher codes


8 Months Gift Subscription from toucanBox

8 Months Delivery of Grande Toucan Boxes – was £99.95, now £89.96 with Toucan Box voucher codes


Perfect Party Bags with 10 Petite toucanBox crafts

Party Bags of 10 Petite Toucan Boxes – was £39.95, now £35.96 with Toucan Box voucher codes


And now for outdoor toys. You can’t go wrong with retro-inspired outdoor toys and you can find a great selection of savings when you order them using Smyths Toys voucher codes. There are some things that never go out of fashion and those things include swing sets, playhouses, swing ball, bouncy castles, paddling pools and space hoppers. I’ve included some of these here, but I’m sure you’ll still find plenty of the others online somewhere…

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car

Little Tikes Cozy Coupe Car – was £49.99, now £39.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes


Soulet Fargo Wooden Play Centre

Soulet Fargo Wooden Play Centre – was £349.99, now £249.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes


Castle Bouncer with Slide

Castle Bouncer with Silde – was £274.99, now £159.99 with Smyths Toys voucher codes


So if you’re a parent with summer holidays on the horizon (like myself), this feels like the perfect time to stock up on a few retro and vintage toys. I was going to say ‘they don’t make them like they used to’, but actually, as you can see from all of the above, they do!

Vintage-look sportswear voucher codes to get you Wimbledon-ready

There’s quite a big sporting event in the not-too-distant horizon that you might have heard of (ok, so I put in the title) and this week I’ve got some Adidas voucher codes, American Golf voucher codes and Sporting Pro voucher codes to help you celebrate, vintage-style. I’ve not limited it to vintage tennis gear because that’s just a little bit too specialist (as much as I would like to), but more general vintage-look sportswear whether you’re into Roger Federer’s old-school tennis blazer or some 70s and 80s retro tracksuits…

Talking of retro tracksuits, my first stop this week is an updated array of Adidas voucher codes, because when you think of vintage sports gear, surely this is the first name that springs to mind? Searching through their sale stock, I found a couple of retro-look tennis outfits as well as the obligatory tracksuit, but if you want even more 3 stripe action then feel free to delve further. With Adidas voucher codes you can wither get up to 50% off in their sale (which is where I found my picks), or get 15% off your order when you sign up to their newsletter…


adidas - All Premium Strappy Tank Top Flash Orange  / Pearl Met. S09366

All Premium Strappy Tennis Tank Top (was £42, now £29 with Adidas voucher codes)


adidas - All Premium Skort Flash Orange  / Pearl Met. S15762

All Premium Tennis Skort (was £42, now £29 with Adidas voucher codes)


adidas - Track Suit Black / Flash Orange S22514

Track Suit (was £55, now £27.50 with Adidas voucher codes)


I wasn’t planning on featuring any golf wear because, to be honest, I know very little about golf. But then I came across these American Golf voucher codes and it dawned on me that golf is the ideal sport for donning vintage attire, what with all those jackets, polo shirts and tartan. So I took a look at the American Golf sale and found some women’s and men’s items that have a bit of a vintage feel to them…

Lyle & Scott V Neck Ladies Cardigan

Lyle and Scott V-Neck Ladies Cardigan (RRP: £95, now £47.99 with American Golf voucher codes)


Calvin Klein Arc Ladies Polo Shirt

Calvin Klein Arc Ladies Polo Shirt (RRP: £49.99, now £39.99 with American Golf voucher codes)


Under Armour Heatgear Chest Stripe Polo Shirt

Under Armour Heatgear Chest Stripe Polo Shirt (RRP: £39.99, now £31.99 with American Golf voucher codes)


And lastly, it’s well worth taking a look at the current Sporting Pro voucher codes for a whole host of different accessories at great prices. Of course there are the ever-reliable Adidas items – you just can’t get away from them when looking for vintage sportswear, and nor would you want to – but if you have a browse, you might find a few other retro products that you prefer. Anyway, here are my three Sporting Pro picks…

Womens Pro Touch Isabel Running Shorts

Women’s Pro Touch Isabel Running Shorts (were £14.99, now £7.50 with Sporting Pro voucher codes)


Womens adidas Essentials 3 Stripe Pants

Women’s Adidas Essentials 3 Stripe Pants (were £32.99, now £16.99 with Sporting Pro voucher codes)


Mens adidas Essentials 3-Stripes Full-Zip Hoodie

Men’s Adidas Essentials 3 Stripe Full Zip Hoodie (was £42.99, now £30 with Sporting Pro)


I hope these online savings have not only inspired you to don a few vintage sportswear items this summer, but also perhaps even get out a do a bit of exercise in them!
