I have been sent a lot of things since we started the craft shows but hands down your creations out of old silk WW2 maps has got to be one of the most original and charming things I've seen… Your company motto of remade, reloved, retold is spot on and we should all embrace that! I wish you every success with your business and congratulations on being such an original.
I received my order this morning and it has taken me a while to compose myself! I carefully and slowly opened the package but was ill-prepared for the emotion it generated....how strange the human mind is! It is quite the loveliest object I have handled in a long time and the smell of lavender, well, just gorgeous! I am not a fan of buying online....I like to touch, feel and choose. But there are rare times when I leave things 'in the lap of the gods'. It was a good decision this time.

I am trying to use individually run, small British companies as much as I can these days, and have been blown away by the personal touch I keep on encountering. Talk about “small is beautiful”. Thanks for everything – I mean, it’s just a card for a stranger and your attention has been great.

I am absolutely delighted with my covered notebook and passport cover. Just love them. Thank you so much. I will certainly be back for more. I love the stories about where the maps have come from and how they came to you. Everything is so beautifully presented and a joy to receive.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the cufflinks and bow-tie that arrived last week. My boyfriend thinks they are great, and he is normally very difficult to buy for. They are beautifully made and I love the quirkiness of the hand-stamped message around the outside of the cufflinks. I'll send you a photo of him wearing them with his DJ at the Regimental Ball nest week!

Received my goodies yesterday, and I love them.... Thank you so much, not sure I want to give them away now, may have to just keep them... I loved the lavender bag as a little extra, smells divine..

Dear Sara Jane; just received the cufflinks, beautifully packaged, thank you so much. My husband will love them! Thank you also for the card, I know he likes a challenge! I’ll be back to order again, thank you again, a lovely personal service.

What can I say? You’ve done an awesome job on the hankie and buttonhole. Thank you so much. It’s even better than I thought it would be (and my expectations were pretty high to start with!). I can definitely see a few more in different colours on the horizon, provided you are happy to make them. Everything from the product to packaging was first class (loving the Morse code note.) and I shall be raving about Home Front Vintage to anyone that will listen! Thank you again and best wishes.

Dear Sara Jane, The package arrived today and I was blown away by the quality and finish on the cushion covers and the attention to detail in the packaging and information on the story of the maps. I took the cushion covers into John Lewis to buy feather pads and the staff in the shop were just as impressed as I am. I look forward to displaying them on my sofa and await the envious comments of my friends!
Jo Evans, York
I just wanted to say the two passport covers arrived today (Christmas presents. One for me though) and was knocked out with them. I think the whole presentation and packaging, graphic design and not least the actual passport covers are all brilliant. It’s really great to see something done so exceptionally well I felt I had to let you know. In the binge of consumption that is a modern Christmas it’s really good to get something unique, stylish, useful and recycled. I love your website also. Have bookmarked it. Wishing you great success in the future.
