About

Like Mother Like Daughter

The name Tink's Vintage comes from the name Tink, which was my Mother's nickname for me.

My Mother had her own vintage shop in Camden Passage, London, famous for its antique market and shops. Her shop was called 'Poppy' and she sold mainly vintage clothing, textiles and accessories. I loved that shop! Everything about it was magical. The vintage clothes, the baskets of lace, handbags, shoes and sparkly necklaces and the regular customers who had become friends. They would come into the shop, and my Mum would make a cup of tea for them while they browsed. She loved those amazing old Victorian dresses, nightgowns, and antique lace christening gowns, and when I was a child, I can remember her hauling these enormous saucepans up onto the stove to boil them clean. The smell of boiling vintage clothing was dreadful! But the result was always a row of crisp, sparkling white gowns, that she would lovingly iron for what seemed like an eternity!

My Mum also used to take me with her when she went buying. I guess I must have picked up my passion for vintage and antique things from my Mum, and developed an eye for it, as those wonderful memories stuck with me, and now I collect and sell antique and vintage jewellery, clothing, textiles and other antique items.

What I love about antique items, is that each piece is unique and contains so much history. Made in an age when craftsmanship was important, and where people weren't concerned about how long it took to make something beautiful. Our age is about chain stores and money. It's about a race against time to do things faster, and make things faster, to sell more quickly. The result is everything looks the same, and has no character. It's a good thing we have Etsy as a showcase for those who still value craftsmanship.

Every time I find a vintage piece, whatever it is, I always wonder about the person who it belonged to so long ago, and what their lives must have been like. Every piece tells a story, and I am passionate about that. It is important to me that anyone who buys a piece from me is happy. If you have any questions at all, please contact me.
