“ Brand: Past Times / Type: Mirror „
When it comes to the store that is Past Times, its somewhere I shop frequently whether it be to treat myself to cute and unique things or gifts a bit different for other people. I love the treasures in store and can spend hours perusing lol. have bought plenty of things over the years and had no problem at all with products at all!
Recently Past Times has had 25% off absolutely everything they sell, good news you would think but it hasn't been for my purse (please note this sale is only on till Monday 22nd November).
This I had felt attracted to for a while but at the usual price of £15.00 per compact it seemed a little on the expensive side but reduced to £11.25 seemed a little better and so I got myself one in the end lol.
The Compact Itself:
The size of this compact is (cm) 7.7w and its made from a shiny silver metal casing and has a hinge to the back of it and a raised yellow, black and silver bee motif to the top of it which is meant to be Victorian in design. It opens via a clasp at the front of it with total ease and inside you get (to the top) a magnifying mirror and then to the bottom a standard one, both in a large size and edged by the silver compact smoothly.
The whole thing is easy to open and close, the metal in shiny and the bee motif is really well secured onto the compact and simply beautiful with real attention to detail on it and great stand out colours. The wings are engraved, the enamelled body is slightly rippled giving it a slight texture and really, it is just very pretty indeed.
It all comes in a black velvet drawstring bag which is important to keep it safe, clean and unscratched but to be fair this is great quality and doesn't really scratch anyway.
This is a unique gift, solid and you can tell it cost a few quid due to its polished finish. I love my mirror, so much so I went back the day after purchasing this one and treated myself to the same one with a ladybird design on it!
Only available from Past Times and highly recommended from me!
