Before this week we didn't know enamel kitchen splash backs existed. Now we have not 1, not 2, not 3, but 4 on sale in our Etsy shop! heart_eyes

Two buds and a boot full of bric-a-brac

Absolutely Nice Vintage is run by best buds, Damian and Mark. The pair met in Ruby Blue, a vintage clothes shop which Damian opened in late 2007.

Since then, they've explored many a charity shop, jumble sale, car boot and auction together and decided to start selling some of their finds in October 2013. Partly because they had no more room to keep these treasures for themselves and because their mums told them to.

Absolutely Nice Vintage relocated from the cupboard under Mark's mum's stairs to an old Victorian shirt mill in 2016 and now sell all over the globe from their studio space in Carlisle, Cumbria.

Previous clients include Pinewood Studios, Disney, Jack Wills and designer Wayne Hemmingway to name but a few.

  • Mystery old man textile designer

    United Kingdom

    Somewhat of a closely guarded secret, the story goes that the man who produced these beautiful blankets, 91 years young we’re told, once worked as a textiles designer in London. Working well into his 80s, the firm eventually made him take retirement which is when he relocated back home up North.
