Retro Kenwood Mixer print by Nursey Bang Bang


A piece of artwork in honour of a once much loved piece of kitchen equipment, this retro Kenwood Mixer print is from Bournemouth-based Etsy seller Nursey Bang Bang.

The A5 print celebrates the beauty – complete with orange trim – of this must-have of the 70s kitchen. Other prints also celebrate other now redundant household goods such as an old-fashioned hoover and a vintage Pifco iron.

Nursey Bang Bang describes her style as having a "whiff of the 50s, a dash of the mundane, a splattering of the 70s which is all rolled up in a picnic blanket full of cake crumbs". We heartily approve. 

The print costs just £8.

Vintage-style stacking cake tins

Stacking cake tinesCath KidstonLisa Stickley: we seem to have featured a lot of cake tins recently. But if you like cake, these stacking cake tins have a great advantage – you can store three tiers worth!

Apart from the joy of holding a lot of cake, these tins have got the benefit of some good vintage style. They come in cream covered metal, with either green or red lids. The look is topped off with some matching, not-too-twee, retro typography. For those who are slightly less greedy, they're available as single tins too. 

The set of three stacking tins is available for £35.
