  1. Wee find: Vintage Christmas decorations


    There's been a real trend for nostalgic Christmas decorations this year, with all sorts of glitter-adorned glass reproduction baubles gleaming from department-store windows. But I quite fancy the real thing, like these vintage decorations from Primrose Hill shop Shikasuki.


    The glass pine cones are Russian and date from the '40s and '50s, while
    the feather angels date from the '40s. There's also a great selection
    of '60s transparent baubles with miniature 3D scenes. Prices start at
    £3.50 for a bauble, with the larger angels priced at £35.
