Lost my Christmas mail-order catalogue with scandi stuff and can't remember the name

Possibly now in the recycling! I had a nice mail-order catalogue which started off with scandi things and then traversed other parts of the world. I can't remember its name so can't go online instead. Does anyone have a clue which one it might be - it was very nice! I had even decided to order some things. But now it is of the things was a swiss epiphany village (relatively unusual so might jog someone's memory)?

I had this but can't for life of me remember what it was called! Mine got chucked in the recycling too. Bit annoyed as there was a lovely Scandi advent calendar which I thought I'd order for next year.

Aha, maybe we need to dive into our recycling bins head first to try to retrieve them! There was a tea towel i liked as well! Very annoying. Still, maybe someone else will remember? (Hopeful)

It was a bit like the Past Times catalogue but arranged by country.....

Thanks insan and cake - both those sites are lovely! But they are not the one - notreally's description is very accurate - it's divided by country. And i think It had a name that was vaguely descriptive of what it is if you see what i mean (rather than a brand).

Should i be pleased that i can't find it, and see it as a message from the universe not to buy any more stuff? But some of it was going to be for presents! Or decorations to bring people joy!

Um, trying to think of something else that might identify it - i think it might have had pancake kits from canada once you got to the north america section.

Where did you get it? Was it a free one with a newspaper/magazine?

OdinsLoveChild Wed 16-Nov-16 08:06:19

Dibor? That has lovely stuff from around the world smile

Sorry my DD says try culture vulture.

Ciutadella Wed 16-Nov-16 08:08:55

Ha, i will do if i find it - but my various search terms have failed me! It might have come through the post or in a newspaper - but it's not like the old days when you used to get five copies of the same catalogue through the post in quick succession! I may now be waiting until next year, hoping for another mail shot.

Ah, i've remembered another thing -four plates with very bright bird designs on them. Can't remember which country that was!

Just seen the latest messages - and odins dd has saved the day! Culture vulture it is. Thank you so much odins dd, that is your good deed for the day! (And odins for being the messenger. And to every one else for their suggestions!)

I hope you remember it sounds like I need a look. Culture vulture is lovely I may be gone some time.

Thanks for that OP, there are some lovely things! I've just managed to order a gift for my, terribly awkward to buy for, dh.

insan1tyscartching Wed 16-Nov-16 12:46:06

Ooh lovely site, thank you OP and Odin's dd, have requested a catalogue too.

Notreallyawaitress Wed 16-Nov-16 16:22:45

Hurrah! Off to spend more money I don't have grin

OdinsLoveChild Thu 17-Nov-16 19:06:54

So what did we you all order? wink

I get this magazine at home as the previous occupant used to buy stuff from there. Is there more stock in the website? CBA to look it up!

Autumnchill Thu 17-Nov-16 19:15:06

I suddenly got sent CultureVulture and Qwerty. Either of those?

Autumnchill Thu 17-Nov-16 19:15:54

Ignore, took me too long to type! smile

Not heard of this site before. I'm going to enjoy browsing their website.
