Now I'm finally concentrating on what I've always wanted to do - have a shop! (actually wanted a cafe too but that's not going to happen online ), and collect and remodel vintage and modern clothes and other lovely artefacts and curios from the 50s onwards, such a rich and exciting few decades for design.
I hope to connect with other vintageaholics so we can oooh and aaah at each other's finds.
