About Us

Dig For Vintage is a registered trade marked company and along with its sister company Country Cottage Collectables are retailers of genuine vintage household furniture, goods, textiles, clothing and collectables generally dating from 1930 and into the 1970’s.

We believe in quality and old fashioned service.

We are lucky enough to be based near the coast on the western edge of the sunny Isle of Wight in a village that lies within an area of outstanding natural beauty, with its beautiful coastline designated as heritage coast and a site of special scientific interest.It is famous for its numerous dinosaur finds in the eroding cliffs and smugglers!

I have a house full of boys and clutter, a large garden full of flowers, birds, fruits and vegetables and a menagerie including chickens, turkeys, ducks, herds of guinea pigs that mow our lawns, dogs and our elusive workshop cat.

I drive a 1952 Morris Minor (called Mavis, she has a beautiful 1948 interior and is very proud of it) she is in daily use and we have a 1972 VW T2 Campervan always in various stages of dilapidation, but generally on the road, and have owned a 1970 Triumph Tiger 500cc Motorcycle for 38 years along with a 1956 Ariel VH Red Hunter sadly currently in boxes!

So we not only DIGFORVINTAGE we live it.

Modern mass produced goods will rarely match the quality of the genuine vintage equivalent as unfortunately the craftsman’s skills, time consuming techniques and quality materials are no longer available or are to costly to be viable in today’s fast moving market place.

Classic, stylish, timeless pieces of quality bring an immediate charm and character with a personal twist and homely touch to any room or occasion.

We ensure a personal service is guaranteed at all times and select every single item that is placed for sale in our online vintage shop ensuring the highest quality possible.

Everything you need for a gorgeous vintage look for every room of your home!

If you don’t see what you are looking for in our online shops, chances are, we may have it on stock or know where you might find it, so please feel free to contact us.

We will be only too pleased to help in any way we can.

Our Motto

“We won’t sell anything we wouldn’t want ourselves”

Why that’s the very reason we bought it in the first place and we have impeccable taste! “It’s a gift you can’t learn it!”

Maybe it was having an Edwardian father or watching episode after glorious episode of “Steptoe & Son” as a boy or working on small farms as a youth that taught me everything has a use and never to throw anything away “as it’s just as likely to come in handy”.

As a result I have a loathing for waste of any kind so we collect, repair and upcycle.

Upcycling doesn’t just reduce landfill, it actually gets close to the eco-ideal of turning waste into something useful and of lasting beauty.

Reduce reuse and recycle……

Did you know each household in the UK produces around one tonne of rubbish every single year. In the UK, households throw away over 29.1 million tonnes of waste. That's the same weight as 4.85 million male African Elephants! (Source.) www.recycle-more.co.uk
