About CarolasChoices

Sales 2,497
On Etsy since 2014

Carola's Choices brings you 50 years of passion for vintage, textiles, jewelry, beads and the unusual.

I have always collected vintage and textiles and various curious items that caught my eye since the age of 9. I started my first vintage store in Amsterdam with my mum in the early 1970's when I was 19 and then we opened another one near Covent Garden in London in the early 1980's. Even when I didn't have a shop I would buy just as though I still had one. Every nook and cranny in my bijoux Amsterdam flat has something stuffed in it that I have discovered on my travels.

I come across things.........we attract each other.....I find myself somewhere and it seems like it is just to discover that item........it just happens that way. I don't look they find me!

Now what I wore growing up in the 1960's, 70's and 80's is vintage! Which is strange as I wore a lot of vintage then, dressing up to go dancing in clubs in vintage outfits especially in the early 70's. ( Quite a few stories there to tell )

So please bear with me as I have a lot to put on line and I keep on discovering stuff in drawers and cupboards. I really have to create some space as I will need several lifetimes to use everything that I have collected. I have to start somewhere so I will be building up the shop as I go along.

I look forward to sharing my passion with you.

Carola's Choices represents 50 years of collecting vintage buttons, textiles and all kinds of other things that I found that I just loved and had to have. Since my first vintage shop in Amsterdam in the 70's I have always loved wearing vintage and using it in creating my textile art and jewelry, it makes things really individual and one of a kind. I hope you will find things to inspire you to create your own style, art, jewelry, or environment. Ask me if you are looking for something in particular, I always joke that I probably have one in a cupboard somewhere.....you never know!
