  • (happy music)

  • - Hello lovely people.

  • Welcome to my 2019 vintage gift guide,

  • and I'm really excited to share with you

  • some kind of ideas I have had

  • for nice things you can gift your family and friends,

  • or yourself, because no one is saying

  • you can't just make

  • a fancy stocking full of things for yourself.

  • (bells chiming)

  • What?

  • By the way, this jumper is available

  • from the merch shop beneath this video.

  • (bell dinging)

  • If you've been following me in Instagram,

  • you'll know that I have been doing

  • an advent outfit challenge, where I choose

  • a commenter on each of my advent outfit posts

  • to send a Christmas card to.

  • I've been so excited, writing them all,

  • and sending them off, because seriously,

  • I am one of those people who loves giving presents,

  • even more than I love receiving them.

  • So I decided to send some more presents out.

  • Keep watching until the end of the video,

  • when I have a very special giveaway announcement.

  • But time for another quick announcement before that.

  • I would like to welcome all of the newest members

  • of The Kellgren-Fozard Club, because we have really grown

  • in the last few days, and I'm assuming

  • that's because YouTube have just opened up

  • the function to some more countries,

  • as they are now allowing people

  • to purchase channel memberships

  • directly in the YouTube IOS app.

  • And I think it's just in a few countries currently,

  • but they have told me

  • that they will be rolling it out farther soon, so yay.

  • If you don't know what The Kellgren-Fozard Club is,

  • it's a little private members club

  • that I have here on YouTube,

  • where people can support the channel,

  • and at the same time, get access to fun things,

  • like a monthly behind the scenes video.

  • Birthday shout-outs, members only posts,

  • customer emojis for livestreams, oh don't forget,

  • we're all having a livestream on the 21st,

  • and you get my little face after your name in the comments.

  • On with our exciting Christmas gifts.

  • This year, I wanted to do something a little different,

  • and a little more sustainable,

  • and focus on true vintage gifts.

  • Because what is 2019, if not all of us

  • panicking about the environment?

  • By the way, if you haven't seen Leena Norms's

  • "A Guide To Positive Panic" series,

  • then definitely go check that out, it's very informative.

  • I learnt things like wrapping paper is not recyclable.

  • If you put it in the recycling,

  • it will contaminate everything,

  • and maybe your entire street's recycling

  • will be put into landfill, so, wow.

  • To be honest, this is the first year that I lived in a house

  • that doesn't have an open fire,

  • and I'm very used to just turning off

  • all the central heating, and sitting in that one room,

  • keeping ourselves warm through burning wrapping paper.

  • Yes, England really is like the films.

  • But I now know not to put the paper

  • into the recycling this year, so.

  • Newspaper and brown paper are recyclable, however,

  • to wrap things in that.

  • And I'm going to be using up the wrapping paper rolls

  • I do still have, because otherwise that is wasteful,

  • but only to go to people I am sure are fully aware

  • they can't recycling it, or I'm seeing them in person,

  • and handing it them, and can tell them not to recycle it,

  • which is a very weird thing to say,

  • because normally I'm telling people the opposite.

  • Next year, I'm going to look into wrapping in cloth.

  • Please remind me of that, in November of next year,

  • because I have memory problems, and I will forget

  • the existence of this video even, so.

  • Probably in a few days.

  • So Claudia and I headed to our favorite antique shop

  • to see what we could find.

  • (happy music)

  • We're in Lewes, and we're going shopping

  • for some second-hand goodies.

  • - What's this? - What is that?

  • - [Claudia] Don't know,

  • but it's making me think it's for that Pullman.

  • - It's a compass. - Oh.

  • - [Jessie] But I don't know why

  • it's got all these bits inside, maybe you gotta like...

  • - Wow. - There's a mirror.

  • - [Claudia] It's a very fancy little compass.

  • - The first thing to catch my eye

  • were these 1980s gold-toned scarf clips.

  • Now, since fashion is nothing if not repetitive,

  • you can find a lot of things

  • that are kind of 1940s and 1950s elements

  • in things from the 1980s.

  • I don't actually intend to use these as scarf clips however,

  • I'm just going to clip them onto my shoes,

  • and make my shoes look like they have a fancy buckle.

  • They're in really good condition,

  • and which for things that are originally '40s and '50s

  • aren't necessarily, isn't necessarily the case.

  • They're quite weighty, though actually,

  • and they're very, very pretty.

  • I love a good cameo, makes me really pleased.

  • I've always wanted a proper cameo brooche one day.

  • As such, they're kinda a great little accessory

  • that you can really use in a whole wide variety of clothes,

  • which means that they're really super wearable,

  • 'cause you can use them over, and over, and over again.

  • And I'm feeling feeling fairly better,

  • or I've just had a lot of Lemsip,

  • because I'm like woo, (laughing).

  • But yeah, I'm good.

  • (happy music)

  • Now the second thing is this filigree gold brooch,

  • which I'm in love with.

  • It's so pretty, it's a bow brooch, guys, it's a bow.

  • And it's filigree, like my engagement ring.

  • This is gonna look absolutely wonderful

  • accessorizing some of my dresses, okay.

  • - Reminds me of something my grandmother had,

  • she had this little coronation thing,

  • which had like little horses carrying along

  • the queen's coronation carriage.

  • And it's real, we'd always play with it.

  • I love like little moving things like this.

  • Bit of Lego.

  • - Why'd you need to buy anything new?

  • Ever?

  • There ya go, done.

  • (happy music)

  • The third thing I don't have to actually show you,

  • because Claudia felt to hide it from him,

  • and then he took it.

  • But we found some really great kids toys

  • at the antique shop, for our nephew.

  • It was this really lovely little car that we found.

  • He's really into them at the moment,

  • especially working vehicles.

  • He's not even two, but he's really into

  • anything that's like a truck, a tractor, a digger,

  • police cars, we managed to get him a little fire engine,

  • which he was like yes.

  • There was a massive bags of Lego at the shop,

  • which was so much cheaper

  • than you could possibly buy Lego for now.

  • And a huge box of cars.

  • They had obviously separated out the ones with lead in,

  • but do use caution, don't give a lead car to a child.

  • We've learnt these lessons now.

  • If it's not the lead that worries you about secondhand toys,

  • but you are actually quite worried about germs,

  • buy toys you can boil.

  • Like the aforementioned Lego.

  • Or there are all sort of plastic cars,

  • which you can just (lips smacking) (air blowing),

  • ah, I mean don't take it out while it's still boiling.

  • I don't know why I did that.

  • Vintage red and gold baubles, excuse me, how beautiful.

  • Next up I was absolutely delighted to find

  • this set of original 1950s baubles.

  • They're amazing, look at these.

  • Oh, I'm in love.

  • So as I mentioned, we have a very small nephew,
