1940's jackets & suits....

Last week l had a little bundle of 1940's jackets and suits arrive instore they were are bit dusty so l've sent them off to the drycleaners for a freshen up! I love a well made jacket they can transform your outfit and look so stylish over pants or skirts! While l've always had a passion for 40's & 50's fashion and furniture, l love Industrial, retro, vintage, shabby all in there own right so it comes back to making it work together this and that sitting along side each other in harmony! It also gives people the chance to create their own style which l love to see.....often people come into my shop and l get really inspired to see how they put things together that's the joy of vintage! Hope everyone has a great week x

Bakelite bangles & brooches...

After many attempts to add some photo's l'm sad to say l am still without pics. However l plan to remedy this by investing in a new camera so stay tuned... I met so many lovely people at the Fryerstown Antique fair and caught up with some from the year before one of which was Callie from Hunted & Collected. Callie has the most amazing range of Antique/Vintage jewellery that l have ever seen....So now l have a range in my shop gorgeous wooden pieces, bakelite bangles & brooches, Victorian/Deco hair comb very stylish, really l want the whole collection for myself but maybe l'll start with a bakelite bangle or 2! Hope everyone had a great weekend! X

This weekend l have been a part of the Fryerstown Antique fair with my little stall of vintage clothing and furniture and while l do apologise that for this my first blog l do not have any photo's to show you l will endeavour to post some after the weekend. Hope you all have a great weekend and thank-you for reading my blog. X
