Meet Muriel......

This is Muriel called so because she originally came from a shop by the same name! It's a shame you can't see her eyes (as they are so 60's and very pretty)  it was quite windy today and her mermaid mane kept tossing around.  She is looking for a new home where she can show off her vintage figure. This mannequin has an amazing body shape nothing like modern ones....

These 2 are currently in my shop window...the dress is a rayon fabric with the most wonderful  Oriental inspired print it has a side metal zip a lovely gathered  section above a full skirt very lovely...




And just in this hand blown glass dome from Austria. I had 2 but one did'nt even last 24 hours in the shop.It has such a beautiful pattern on it and looks great on it's own or you could use it display a special treasure.


You can't have too many old eiderdowns! This one is in excellent vintage condition with a pale green background and lovely little cherry red roses......sweet and very plump!This one is 180....


I had to show you these swimmers  l really love the fabric and the great little pom pom bust detail.....

This swimsuit/playsuit is a med or 10-12 and is 180....it's rare to find 2 the same!!


Here is a fabulous cape style coat perfect for spring weather and underneath a wonderful 1960's taffeta dress with a floral chiffon layer over the top....

A couple of fabulous old cottage chairs the rustic paint and the carved top on the large one is just to die for so sturdy and so comfortable...


Each week there is something new in-store and now is a great time to look to spring and freshen up your wardrobe and home, out with the old and in with the vintage he he he...
