Vintage compact mirrors are a real treasure, something they can keep close to their heart (well, in their handbag!) and use for many years to come. Souring antique markets would perhaps be the best place to track them down, but I have also found a great selection on Etsy. What you should/could pay for a vintage compact is a bit like the length of a piece of string… anything from £20 to hundreds, depending on material and age.
It would also make for a great gift for a bride to be… every girl needs a compact mirror on her Wedding day after all.
