We are going to be posting up the odd Christmas sales finds over the festive and new year period, but as of now, we're ore or less finished until 2012.
Thanks for reading and sticking with us over the last year. Hopefully 2012 will be more exciting, as we have an all-new Retro To Go website planned. Look out for that as we get well into next year.
But for now, have a great Christmas and a fantastic start to the new year. Business as usual from 3rd January 2012.
Stalwarts of the vintage clothing scene Tara Starlet have this week launched their first foray into the flourishing and frilly world of vintage lingerie.
Internet fashionistas are all a fluster this morning. It has been announced that, on the back of her highly successful range of lingerie, Dita Von Teese is to launch her first line of clothing.
The first, and hotly anticipated, Conran Collection for M&S arrives this Autumn, with a wide range of products such as furniture, bedding, lighting and kitchenware, including the Ackroyd sofa pictured.
An impressive array of goodies are on offer, from modular sofa systems to rugs to laboratory-themed vases, all with the level of design expertise and mid-century styling you'd expect from the Conran brand. A total of 70 pieces will be available online and in 25 stores across the UK from mid-September.
Although little information about the collection is available online currently, details of all the products are in the M&S Autumn 2011 catalogue which you can pick up in store.
Ok, it's not really gone anywhere, but we've not been able to update Switched On Set as much as we'd like in the past – but all that changed from last weekend.
We hope to update everyday now, so if you like the idea of a more contemporary flipside to Retro To Go, check out the site, add to your RSS feeds, sign up the daily mailout, Twitter etc etc. No Facebook, but if people want it, we'll set one up.
The chair above is one of today's finds, it's the latest Made.com design. Check out the site for more on that.
Switched On Set website
I'm not very good at doing nothing. So when I went down with a bug over the weekend, I found myself developing a website idea I've had a for a long time to fill the time. That site has just gone live, going by the name WowHaus.
The idea is simple. Find the most interesting houses and properties on the market. Classic, vintage, retro, modern, run-down, cheap, expensive – any type really and anywhere at all. UK and beyond. We like nosying around houses online, so why not feature the pick of them?
Don't expect a volume of posts each day (like Retro To Go). The site is more of an experiment and will be updated as and when we find interesting houses. But please bookmark it, sign up to the feed or follow the site on Facebook or Twitter to get the latest finds that way. Feedback welcome – it's early days, so we're open to ideas.
