Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow


You know the drill now, we love the Herb Lester maps, both the design and the fine array of places they flag up. This Herb Lester vintage-inspired map of Glasgow looks like another winner for the company.

As ever, it's a map of the usual and the unusual – so expect record shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, and inevitably a fish and chip shop – albeit one with an opera-singing proprietor. There are also glorious parks, beautiful architecture and great food and drink – like an unchanged 1960s pub, the Glasgow Architectural Salvage Yard, an art deco restaurant and oyster bar (Rogano) and to top things off, an excellent record shop (Monorail).

The map is designed and illustrated by Brent Couchman, is A3-sized(297 x 420mm) and litho printed in England on recycled paper. A bargain at just £3. Another shot over the page.

Carrie Bicycle Basket


Product_thumb php If you're finding that the lengthening days and warmer weather mean that you're venturing out and about on your bicycle once more then why not treat yourself to the Carrie Bicycle Basket?

Inspired by traditional crochet tablecloths but made out of far more enduring polypropylene, the Carrie can be used as a shopping or picnic basket and even flipped upside-down to make an impromptu picnic table.

It comes in black, white and green, complete with a set of hooks for attaching to your bicycle and it costs £64.20.

You can buy the basket from Made in Design here

In With The In Crowd 1960s-style dresses


We featured these over at our Modculture site yesterday, but we suspect there will also be an interest in the In With The In Crowd dresses and clothing line over here too.

In With The In Crowd's Melissa recently started designing and making her own dresses and jackets because she couldn't find anything suitable for herself, with all items produced 'to a high quality', fully lined and with 60s-style detailing (like covered buttons for example).

Prices start at £32.99, although Melissa has sent across a discount code too – if you enter the code RetroToGo at the checkout, you'll get another 15 per cent off. See more designs over the page or check out the site for even more.

Pashley vintage-style Picador tricycle


Think the tricycle was something purely for early childhood? Not according to Pashley, which offers three tricycles, including the Picador tricycle.

This vintage-style three-wheeler is geared very much for adults, the kind of adults who see cycling as a pleasant, eco-style pastime rather than extreme exercise obviously. You'll struggle to keep up with the pack at your local cycling club with one of these.

For your money, you get a tubular steel frame, 20-inch wheels with alloy rims, non-slip pedals, all-weather brakes, 'comfort' elastomer-strung saddle, a rear wire basket and an optional front wicker basket. Three colour options, prices start at £675.
