What a find! Just what I was looking for to re-frame for my mother. As lovely as the photo and super-fast delivery.

For the love of all things vintage

I have always had an eye for vintage and eclectic things.

Growing up, Mum would take me to op-shops, markets and garage sales all the time and we would always have such a great time and find the most unusual things.
She also taught me just because it is second hand, doesn't mean it is trash.

Quite the opposite in fact!

I like to think of second hand things as having a previous life, with lots of love and stories to tell. I enjoy turning them into items with a purpose.

    I love finding vintage pieces and restoring them. You never know what you will find at markets, op-shops or garage sales!

Refunds and Exchanges

Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that all the items I sell are vintage and small imperfections are common. If you're not comfortable with this, vintage items may not be for you.

I use a blend of old recycled, and vintage materials and clothing, and occasionally new materials, and wash all materials as follows –

*** ‘Old clothing’ – machine washed in warm water and line dried in the sun

*** ‘Vintage’ – delicate laces, doilies, old material, and items such as tea towels
and tablecloths are handwashed and dried in the sun. Sometimes faint stains
will still remain.

*** ‘Recycled materials’ – I pull apart old objects and embellishments
eg curtains to to reuse the fabrics. In these cases, cleaning will depend
upon the type of material that the article is made of.

As I use a combination of delicate and vintage materials, my bags should not be machine washed. Spot washing, and handwashing and towel drying are recommended.

All items are made by myself in a smoke free home.
