About

Magpie Treasure Hunter

From the beginning of the shop in 2010, the byline has always been "Vintage Glamour and Style for 21st Century Vamps”. Initially the shop was named Vaudeville Gypsy, in tribute to Gypsy Rose Lee. My background as a jeweller and working in costume props, along with taking up bellydancing, fuelled the desire to make costumes and accessories for bellydance and beyond.

I have an absolute passion for antique and vintage textiles and jewellery. I collect them like a magpie to incorporate into my designs, giving long forgotten and discarded items a new lease of life. I love rummaging in antique shops and discovering treasures. I’m a complete hoarder of sparkly things.

I’m fortunate in being able to create from home, and that home is in the middle of the glorious Suffolk countryside, close to the East coast. Being surrounded by nature is so inspiring.

From sourcing, design, construction, photography, packing and shipping, to promotion on and off Etsy, this is a "hands on" handmade shop.

In 2014 my love of the 1920s and the silent film era became a significant part of the shop when we began selling high quality, original vintage clothing and accessories. 2015 saw another significant step in renaming the shop to reflect our design ethos, and in keeping with our vision from the start.

Welcome to 21st Century Vamp.

Shop policies

Last updated on March 30, 2016
We do our very best to accurately describe our original vintage items, and encourage buyers to ask as many questions as necessary before a purchase. The vintage items we sell have a history, and will likely show visible signs of this.

**We are always happy to answer further questions, so please don't hesitate to ask.**

We passionately believe good design can have a conscience and strive to reuse beautiful antique and vintage textiles and jewels in our original, handmade designs. We feel ageing adds to the beauty and uniqueness of a piece, so expect to see signs of wear and tear.

We like to *recycle* as much packaging as possible. All items are wrapped in acid free tissue paper first.
