In Friday’s Trend Alert, we were thrilled to see The Times Magazine shout about two fabulous must-have baking products from the Imperial War Museum Shop. Featuring both the McDougalls Flour Shaker and the Gingerbread family gift set, The Times tell readers the IWM Shop is the place to go to get its bake-off kit!
Featuring the old school style GPO turntable from the Imperial War Museum shop, we loved reading Woman Magazine tell readers that sometimes you simply can’t beat listening to some classic vinyl. The retro-style record player folds into a briefcase, has built-in speakers and connects to your computer via a USB.
In the run up to the sixth series of The Great British Bake Off which begins next month (and we can’t wait!), the Daily Mail calls your attention to the vintage flour shaker from the Imperial War Museums shop! Perfect for flouring surfaces before rolling out biscuits or pastry treats, the Daily Mail explains no baker should be without one of these in their larder!
Open until the end of August, Fashion on the Ration reveals how women in the 1940s dressed with flare and creativity during wartime despite the restriction of limited materials. With tickets for just £10, Grazia Daily writes to readers that it’s a “small price to pay for timeless fashion inspo”. Fashion enthusiasts; this is so up your street!
We are thrilled that Yours Magazine chose the OXO Tin and the PG Tips Tin from the Imperial War Museum Shop to feature in its piece on retro home style. Yours tells trendy readers that Sunday roasts were never the same without a splash of OXO gravy and that both IWM products are perfect to bring a sense of nostalgia into the home!
We are delighted that House of Coco have featured Fashion on the Ration, a new and exciting exhibition at the Imperial War Museum beginning on March 5. Bringing back the ‘Beauty as Duty’ cause (an official campaign of the Second World War), the IWM have launched a new line of beauty products by John Gosnell & Co – the oldest cosmetic manufacturer in Britain. One product the House of Coco are loving is the Socialite Soap (pictured far left) and the pretty packaging it comes in!
We are so excited that Grazia Magazine has given the thumbs up to the quirky Pin-up brooches from the Imperial War Museum Shop. Grazia explains the brooch has escaped its ‘granny’ image and is now the new cool accessory for all to adorn. With Fashion Week looming, it’s time to dress up and glam up and the Betty pin-up brooch is the perfect way to add a little something more to your outfit!
The Bakelite Telephone from IWM (Imperial War Museum) shop is featured in The Independent today. An original reconditioned working phone. How wonderful to own a piece of history in your own home. To see the article in The Independent, click here.
