I had the unenviable task of taking the car for it’s M.O.T which was booked in a remote part of Manchester. I had an hour to kill so I set off for a stroll to explore the local area. As luck would have it, I came across Insitu an Arcitectural Salvage place that also specialised in Vintage items from Planet Vintage Girl. What a lucky find. Let me give you a flavour.

It’s such an Aladdin’s cave of wonderful things for all parts of the home, that I’d defy any vintage mind to not find something of interest. Lovely ceramics from the 60’s and 70’s.

There’s a whole three floors worth and plenty of nooks and crannies to explore, it’s quite a building.

These wonderful Ercol 1960’s day beds would look amazing with a vintage print foam cushions on it.

Stained glass reclaimed from the windows of houses, shops and churches alike.

A breath of fresh, or rather vintage air and definitely not one to be missed if you’re after that something quirky or unique for your home. Many thanks to the owners for letting me take some shots to show you all too. An hour well spent, I’ll come back again.

    Oh wow! For once, I would have been delighted if the MOT had taken a day, trouble is, I think my car would have been full going home! What a fab place.

      Yep thats the only problem, if the car doesn’t cost you money then the hour spent in here will certainly make up for it ! Thanks for your comment Mel.
