"A Unique Boutique Featuring An Eclectic Mix Of Vintage Wear"

I have had a long standing love affair with all things vintage since it was simply known as second hand! Years spent rummaging through charity shops, flea markets, vintage fairs and of course aunties wardrobe, meant that I amassed quite an amount. I found that friends, and often strangers, would ask where I got my clothes from and offer to buy them, sometimes off my back!

I tutor English, so decided to combine my two passions: words and clothes, and in early 2012 created 'Prick-me-Dainty'. The name derives from an old 16th century word that means to 'dress in ones finery' and that is what vintage dressing means to me. It's not about belonging to a clique or a particular niche, it's about finding something you love, dressing up, putting your own little twist on it and above all, having fun whilst creating your own style and sense of self.

As such, the doors at Prick-me-Dainty towers are open to all fashionistas, whether you're a 40's sweetheart, 50's siren, 60's swinger, 70's hippy, 80's grunger and everything above, beyond and in-between! Difference is celebrated here, (come on, no one wears vintage to blend in with the crowd!) but the one thing all PmD's Dainties and Dandies have in common? The love of a well constructed garment and a passion to dress as their unique, adorable self.

All clothes are handpicked by myself and appraised on quality and lushness- if it doesn't come up to our high demands, it doesn't make it into our stockroom and that is why you will never find us buying in bulk. This does mean that we don't have the same massive amounts of stock as some retailers, but you can rest assured that every item you buy from Prick-me-Dainty was cherry picked with love.

And just before I go, a little bit about me other than my obsession with vintage and words: I love the sound of rain, watching blossom twirling in the breeze, bright lights twinkling in the dark, good manners, the sun reflected on water, curious people, wild flowers, leopard print, shiny lip gloss, the melancholy beauty of the cello, sunsets, strong women, gentle men, freedom, fairness and Pearl Jam...
I hope you find something you love...I hope you find the unique you.

Prick-me-Dainty xx

Refunds and Exchanges
Each item is throughly inspected before being listed, great pictures taken and a truthful, informative description written. I do this because this is what I expect when I purchase an item, so I wish to do the same for my customers. As such, I will consider refunds only if the garment has been grossly misrepresented and in keeping with the Distance Selling Regulations, customers in the UK are able to return such unsatisfactory items within 7 working days of receipt. In the first instance, please contact me first, if you intend to return a garment.

Returns MUST be made via a trackable service such as Royal Mail Signed For. A refund will only be given once the item has been receieved in it's original condition and packaging (with any tags still attached) and has been fully inspected by us to ensure that is is unaltered and unworn etc. Only the value of the item will be refunded; return shipping costs are non-refundable.

Unfortunately, international returns cannot be accepted at this time.
