Carg - Medium Lacquered Bamboo Bowl_ _6 - Cargo

What do you reckon this bowl would cost in The Conran Shop – £15? Maybe £20? Save your cash and head to Cargo HomeShop where it will cost … £6!

These gorgeous bowls are new this season and come in loads of different colours – from lime to duck egg blue, shocking pink to heritage grey – and are ideal for women like me who never seem to be able to find a condiment bowl that’s not a) in the dishwasher or b) chipped. I’ve just bought four of the lovely grey ones in fact, my antipasti nestling seductively in them as had an Italian frenzy with friends on the weekend.

The bowls come in small (£4), medium (£6) or large (with a lower rim, £12), and frankly they’re an absolute godsend. Plus, an added bonus, you’ll be helping the local economy as Cargo, for all its branches, is a Thame-based company – hurrah!

Going, going, GONE to the blogger in the corner with the capenata crisis.
