I love my egg cup plate and it goes brilliantly with the rest of my collection. Great service & communication with the bomus of a speedy delivery to NZ. Thanks

I ordered 2 cindy bowls and one small casserole. They were packed so great and arrived earlier than expected. Very great seller, always answered me promptly. 2 thumbs up! Thanks Ailsa!!

A journey down memory lane into quirky, Oldyworldy land

I started collecting retro and mid-century home wares years ago and was a mod in my teenage years. Always having been influenced by 60's music, design and culture I've found myself happy looking back rather than forward when it comes to precious things.

And so Oldyworldy was born. A quirky, more retro take of Oldeworlde.

My love of mad Pyrex patterns and vibrant coffee pots is something that I'd like to share, so please take a look at my quirky items.

If there is anything in particular that you're looking for, please send me a message. I like sourcing out interesting items.

I choose striking pieces that make statements rather than shy into the background.

I make home decor items, cards, trinkets and decorations that are inspired by my love of nostalgia.
