This Week’s Good Finds: Vintage Style, Inside and Out

If you're on the lookout for a Good Find, then look no further – this week we've rounded up some amazing retro items, from roller skates to lamps.

Vintage lamp

Electronics: a vintage upcycled lamp

A 1950s cine camera has been carefully repurposed into an amazing tripod lamp with an Edison-style lightbulb. Imagine enjoying the glow as you settle down to watch a movie – we’re thinking The Dam Busters or Singin’ In The Rain might fit the bill. Don’t worry if this lamp has found its way to a cinema room already, you’ll find loads of quirky upcycled lamps on Gumtree.


Sports & leisure: retro-style roller skates

If you needed an excuse to get outside, these fun disco roller skates will definitely get you moving. In bright blue with red and yellow stripes, they have serious retro appeal. But if these size fives won’t provide the perfect fit, you can browse the huge selection of roller skates on Gumtree.

Garden & patio: a vintage croquet set

While we’re all hoping the sun will keep his hat on for a little while longer, now is the perfect time to scour the Gumtree community for garden games and activities. An authentic croquet set could be just what’s needed to help fuel everyone’s competitive streak and maybe, just maybe, even encourage teenagers outside for a game. Once it’s time to pack the mallets away, the wooden box is an awesome vintage piece in itself. Croquet might not be your bag but that’s OK – there’s an impressive range of other garden games to explore on Gumtree.

doll house

Baby and kids’ stuff: a handmade doll’s house

This vintage doll’s house is a truly unique find. It was handmade made by the seller’s grandad so you won’t find another one just like it! Kids will love creating an impressive home for little dollies using the whopping 120 furniture pieces and accessories – there’s a porcelain bathroom set and even adorable miniature breakfast plates of eggs and beans. If this Good Find has already been snapped up, you’ll find lots more doll’s houses on Gumtree.

dressing table

Home & furniture: a mid-century desk

This vintage G Plan table is a seriously Good Find that would make a brilliant desk if you work from home. Or if you don’t, perhaps have a word with your boss and tell them that it’s in great condition and was designed by Ib Kofod-Larsen – they’ll almost definitely let you work from home once they hear that. Don’t fret if this item is already getting used to the 9-to-5, there’s plenty more G Plan furniture to complete your home office on Gumtree.

glass storage

Home & furniture: a reeded glass storage unit

Sometimes your finger accidentally slips and you add two of something to your cart. It happens to the best of us! Thankfully, Gumtree is a great way to find a solution for those times when you only needed one but you ordered two – and it’s also the perfect place to look for a Good Find from a seller who did the same. Take this trendy storage unit with vintage-style reeded glass – this extra unit is still in its packaging and ready to find its way to a new home. If you’re looking for a special discovery, you might be surprised at what you can find in the collection of storage units on Gumtree.
