Win £75 to spend at Truc Vintage
If you’re scratching your head over what to get for a vintage-loving friend or relative this Christmas, you may just find your answer at Truc vintage. An online boutique specialising in antique, vintage, retro and secondhand fashion, accessories, gifts and homewares, Truc takes its name from the French for ‘thingummy’ or ‘whatsit’.
Owner Lindsey Jones explains the philosophy behind the brand: “Ultimately we offer ‘beautiful old things’ of varying kinds. There are only two criteria: Firstly, they must be old or pre-loved and secondly, they must be gorgeous, unique or interesting.”
Among the treasures to be discovered are Italian and Scandinavian art glass pieces, retro kitchen and barware, quirky table lamps and vintage books. For catwalk-conscious vintage lovers, regularly updated collections are curated with a nod to the current season’s key trends, with fashion stories for AW12 including country styling, oriental luxury and purple - the colour of the season.
Lindsey continues: “I saw an opportunity to provide a more trend-inspired and edited range of products. I wanted customers to feel that we’d done the hard work for them. You’ll only find things on Truc that I’d be proud to wear myself or have in my own home.”
To help ease the pressure on your purse this Christmas, Truc is offering Vintage Brighton readers the chance to win £75 to spend on www.truc-shop.com. Whether you treat yourself or spend it on a generous gift is entirely up to you!
