OK, I know that this is so the wrong time to be selling a heater (who can think of such things in the midst of a sweaty Durban summer!), but I just couldn’t wait to show off this great GEC (British General Electric) ball heater! While they were relatively common place when I was growing up, they’re pretty hard to come by these days, especially in such good nick! The plastic is a bit scratched, and the inside of the heater (which I can’t get to to clean) has a fair bit of dust, but the overall look is very clean – and very cool! I love the bright orange plastic, and the ball shape is such a design classic. Plus it’s safety-conscious too – if the ball happens to topple over it will self-level, no matter which direction you knock it in.

A great retro accessory for any home, and when winter does one day arrive your toasty feet will be so glad you made the investment!
