As soon as you step into Dig For Vintage you are transported back in time, iconic fashion styles from decades past are displayed in colourful array, hats, coats, evening dresses, jackets, shoes and handbags.

Along side the Annie Sloan paints,waxes and brushes stylish vintage mirrors, framed pictures, maps and prints hang from the walls and a bright crystal chandelier hangs above a 1930s haberdashery counter filled with vintage fabric, linens, table clothes, evening gloves, beautiful accessories and stylish vintage jewellery even gents neck ties, braces and cravats.

Dig For Vintage has been steadily building the business over the last ten years and have collected a unique hoard of antiques and vintage pieces from the early Victorian period right up to the early 1980s.

Authentic mid century furniture rubs shoulders with Victorian tables, vintage parlour pantries from the 1940s filled with enamel ware, period china and kitchenalia to match. Well travelled trunks, suitcases and baskets are stacked alongside displays of textiles, rugs, vintage lamps, ceramics, glassware and fine porcelain.

Everything is carefully selected and lovingly put together to create an interesting customer experience.

The team think that one of best parts of the business is finding interesting pieces that are in need of tender loving care and to give them a new lease of life. At Dig For Vintage we hate unnecessary waste of any kind and to repurpose for example a Victorian dressing table or a 1950s sewing box is so satisfying, as it will be used and loved for many years to come. We are always on the lookout for original period fashion, fabrics, textiles and furnishings. Our aim is to collect and offer classic vintage pieces that will suit all styles and budgets”.

Our shop is also speckled with fun pieces, pretty tea sets, jugs, coffee pots, and stylish vases, cushions, sewing boxes, chairs, cabinets and other up cycled treasures, along with vintage radios, typewriters, toys, games, childrens books with many interesting first editions. For the garden there are galvanised watering cans, fire buckets, baths, clay pots and even vintage gardening tools.

Dig For Vintage believe in old fashioned customer service and we are on hand to discuss ideas of how to vintique an interior space or garden terrace and we offer a no obligation finding service to help complete your perfect vintage wish list.

Returns and condition of goods

Please be aware that the items we sell at Country cottage collectables and Digforvintage are genuine previously used pieces and not from a factory in the Far East unless they are of course, from a factory in the Far East and as a consequence may show some signs of wear commensurate with age. What we consider a major fault or product damage will always be brought to your attention in the description but an item is likely to have some general wear in addition to that. Items will not be refunded due to being old, vintage or collectable. However the customer is always right and if you are unhappy with your purchase in any way, you may return it in the condition in which it was received and in the original packaging for a full refund minus original and any additional postage costs. We will accept returns within 10 working days of receipt.

Lot's of elements can affect the final image quality and therefore some things such as colours may not be 100% accurate but please remember we are selling quality vintage items and really want you to be happy with your purchase.
