Welcome to The Dorothy Days and thank you for looking at my about page. I hope that through this page you will find out a little more about me and my shop.

My family are originally from London but we moved to a little 18th century thatched cottage in a tiny village in rural Dorset, England. I now spend my time between Dorset and beautiful Brighton which is a little further along the coast.

I had a wonderful childhood growing up in the countryside. The village was a magical place to grow up. Still to this day there are no road markings or street lights and it was the kind of place where you know all…

Welcome to The Dorothy Days and thank you for looking at my about page. I hope that through this page you will find out a little more about me and my shop.

My family are originally from London but we moved to a little 18th century thatched cottage in a tiny village in rural Dorset, England. I now spend my time between Dorset and beautiful Brighton which is a little further along the coast.

I had a wonderful childhood growing up in the countryside. The village was a magical place to grow up. Still to this day there are no road markings or street lights and it was the kind of place where you know all your neighbours. The warmer months were spent playing in the garden, lazing in the sunshine in meadows and attempting to make our very own flower perfumes (!) and the winter months were spent making dens in the woods, splashing in puddles and frequently getting stuck in mud (!) and then coming in and warming up in front of the fireplace.

My love for the countryside is something that inspires my work and also the style of the vintage items which I sell in my shop. I hope to bring a little slice of the English countryside to you all!

I have based my shop around one of my favourite quotes. The quote is by William Morris (1834 - 1896) who was an English textile designer and artist. He said, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful”, with this quote in mind I have filled my shop with beautiful handmade items and vintage items which are both beautiful and useful. My vintage items such as my teacups look beautiful when displayed but can also be used and this is a fantastic way to bring life back to old object.

I am proud to be a small, independant shop which is individual and greatly influenced by my own style and tastes.I love both the vintage and the crafting aspects of my shop as both of these are a huge passion of mine and something I really enjoy doing. I hope that my passion for these objects comes through in my shop. You certainly won't be able to find this on the highstreet!
