ebay / Living Room / Vintage Shopping

Hi. I’ve been holidaying on a remote island in Croatia but now I am back and I am here to tell you about our TV cabinet. If that’s not going to draw the crowds I don’t know what will.

Remember this set up we had going on? (Hi there Michaela Strachan):

Well you will be pleased to know it has been rectified for a princely sum of £30. 
Everyone loves an Ikea Expedit bookcase as some point in their lives, don’t get me wrong, but that point was over for us (me). Our Expedit was too tall and too dark and too wrong for that space. I’d been hunting for an ideal cabinet that had taken residence in my imagination for approximately 8 months. Eight months of searching ebay every other day, trying to think countless different ways of searching ‘vintage-retro-tv-unit’. Finally it appeared, sent by the retro gods.
I love it.
It was actually sold to us by a charity shop in Sheffield so that kind of makes it even nicer…and it also makes us less annoyed that they sold it listed as G Plan when it clearly isn’t. But hey, it’s old and it has nice handles, fits the space, holds the telly and even all of our other technology boxes. What more can you ask for, for £30?
Boom.
