Contemporary home kitchen baking accessories

Bargain recipe stand

Trying to prop up a recipe book on the right page without it flipping shut whilst you measure out ingredients and cook,  trying not to spill anything on your book in the process, can often be a recipe for disaster.

But having a stand on which you can pop your recipe book, and ensure it’s well balanced and stays on the right page where you need it, is a better idea.

This chrome recipe holder will do all the work for you, securely keeping the page you want open whilst you get down to the important business of baking, making and cooking.

The recipe stand was £19.95, but is now reduced to just £13.97 in the Graham and Green outlet.

Working clock wall stickers from Spin Collective

Funky fresh design clock wall sticker

Working alarm clock sticker

What’s better than a funky clock wall sticker? A funky clock wall sticker that doubles up as a working clock, of course.

Spin Collective do a brilliant range of working clock wall stickers in different designs. We love the oversized alarm clock wall sticker and the working wall clock sticker, in particular.

The vinyl decal stickers work like all other wall stickers and can be stuck in your chosen location. The working clock mechanism comes with the sticker and is simply applied to the centre of the sticker to finish off the time piece. The mechanism operates thanks to an AA battery, which is supplied when the item is purchased.

Most of the clock wall stickers are available in a choice of different colours, but the clock mechanisms are in a standard black finish.

Normally reasonably priced, these funky working clock wall stickers are even more affordable at the moment, as there’s 30% off the usual prices. Sale prices start at £25.90 for the wall clock.
