"I can't I got £430 for my box of vintage jewellery and watches! I treated myself to a lovely, new SMART TV complete with Netflix. 

At the grand old age of 77, it's a real bonus and a luxury, compared to the 12-year-old TV that it has replaced. I'm so delighted and can't wait to send another box."

Celia discovered the joy of a holiday with her daughtertwo women smiling at the camera

"My daughter and I used the money I made from selling my things on our recent holiday to the coast. With the cost of living increasing, we were really concerned about our expenses but the Vintage Cash Cow money completely covered our spending!

We were unlucky with the weather, but the extra money covered lots of cocktails and lovely meals for us to remember in the winter months."
