Once the excitement of the festive season has died down, the next thing to think about in the new year – your list of resolutions, there’s lots to think about. Whether you’re planning an overhaul on your home, up your style game or aim is to make more ecologically conscious choices, here at Scaramanga we’ve got some great things in stock to help you reach all of your goals for 2021.
Resolution: Organise Your Home
Apart from diets and exercise, one of the most common resolutions is to simply be more organised at home. Whether you’ve decided to tackle craft supplies, paperwork or even the childrens toys, here at Scaramanga we’ve got a wide range of furniture and homewares that will help you cut out the chaos in your home. For books, games and other chunky items, we’ve got a great range of vintage industrial shelving units and racking, but one of our favourites is the Vintage Locker Cabinet, now in the sale for £862.50 ;an original old grey metal locker base – hand-numbered – Scaramanga has blended it with a lovely large teak top it’s the perfect place to organise and display any collectables, craft supplies or other small items. If you’ve got a lot of paperwork to organise, our Vintage Brick Moulds, these chunky, solid teak and iron moulds make great storage wooden storage boxes. A much more interesting way of keeping your files organised.
Resolution: Dress more Ethically
With the topic of the environment constantly in the news, more and more people are deciding to opt for a more ethical approach to fashion this year; it’s no secret that here at Scaramanga, we’re huge fans of anything ethically produced, and we think our range of leather bags tick all of the eco-boxes. Fairly traded, and hand produced by experienced and traditional craftsmen. They’re the easiest way to stay stylish while limiting your impact on the planet. Our new retro styled leather laptop bag featuring a front pocket and crossbody strap is one of our most versatile bags; with an array of pockets and compartments, an adjustable strap and in our signature Hunter Leather, it works superbly for everyone, from students and parents to working professionals.
Resolution: Give your Home a Vintage Makeover
If you’re tired of mass produced furniture and have vowed to give your home an element of eclectic style this year, we’ve got some great smaller pieces that will add a lovely vintage touch in minutes. While it can be fairly daunting to think about changing everything, adding things gradually couldn’t be easier. Vintage suitcases and trunks not only look great, but also have loads of different uses; stack them up and use them as a coffee table, perched beside the bed as a nightstand, mounted on the wall as feature shelves… the possibilities are endless. We particularly like our Vintage Distressed Travel Trunk, £295 which has plenty of space inside, and features writing on the outside. If you’re trying to find more eclectic and retro furniture and toys for a living room or bedroom this decorative blue, vintage Indian fan, £345 could be just what you’re looking for; over 50 years old, this charming one-off piece has a beautiful look to it.
Resolution: Cook More
With ready-meals so widely available, it’s never been easier to produce dinner by simply opening the microwave door – but if you’ve decided to go back to basics and cook for yourself this year, the first thing you’re going to want to do is get your kitchen space organised. The Scaramanga Blue Display Cabinet, £425 manages to combine great vintage styling with high function. We love the yellow beading around the glass panels. Featuring twin glass-fronted doors and a mid-level single shelf, this distinctive display cabinet would make an ideal display unit for your kitchen. Or add this original large vintage brass grater, £45 to your kitchen, a wonderful way to add some rustic character to your home. Scaramanga has been fortunate enough to source just 4 of these authentic items from Rajasthan, NW India. Imagine bringing one of them to the dinner table to grate or citrus rind zester or for spices like ginger. For sure they will be a conversation piece.
Whatever your resolutions are for 2021, we want to wish all our customer health and happiness as we step into the new year. Thank you so much for your custom over the past 14 years. We truly believe we’ve build a little community in Scaramanga, a very stylish community that shares the love of all things vintage and pre-loved and we couldn’t be more grateful.
CHEERS TO 2021!!!
