Welcome to Vintage Diva Emporium!

I love everything vintage and hand made, especially from my childhood era. I grew up as a young child in South Australia during the 1970's and 80's. We listened to the radio and played cassettes or vinyl records to listen to music. We watched black and white television programs then finally watched colour television in the 1970's. Clothes and every single meal were all hand made and so were our haircuts. The milk in glass bottles was delivered every morning by the milkman and the thick cream sat on the top of the full cream milk. We ate fruit and vegetables grown at home in our backyard, whilst our mother preserved all the fruit for us in Vacola preserving jars with red rubber bands.

I ate Balfours' Blueberry pies with pink sugar on top from the local Deli. We drank milkshakes, rode our bikes or walked to school and played with Yoyo's. For a treat we ate fish and chips from the shops, which were all wrapped in inked newspaper. Hungry Jacks' ham and cheese Yumbo burger was the best tasting thing ever in the 1970's. Fresh bread was brought straight home from the bread factory and was delicious.

Vintage items are from a generation when things were hand made, built strong and were made to last. I hope you enjoy my unique vintage collection.
