Having existed for many years and often having been passed from generation to generation, choosing antique and vintage items instead of buying brand new can be the most environmentally conscious way of furnishing a home. Not only does this auction, with its selection of stylish and sustainable pieces which have been lovingly rescued and restored, allow bidders to contribute to what some believe to be the purest form of recycling , but it also offers an opportunity to own something truly unique that cannot be found in any high street store. 

A 'Try Your Grip' machine by Ruffler & Walker £200-£400
