Very pleased with these striking and stylish gift tags. Made my mum's birthday present look very vampish! Thanks as ever for prompt delivery :-)

Stunning vintage brooch. I gifted it and wish I could have kept it, so will keep looking out for another in this lovely shop. Beautifully wrapped too. Many thanks :-)

English Rose Vintage

When I was young I visualised myself living in a tiny whitewashed cottage on a hill far from everything. I would be wearing floaty Laura Ashley dresses and spend my days making my own vegetable dyes and weaving. Ah well, real life isn't like that is it? I have been an archaeologist and a chocolatier but now I find myself working in an office. I may not have that whitewashed cottage but I do live in a beautiful part of the country and have the best life partner I could have imagined. Leigh features heavily in the background of our English Rose Vintage shop, keeping my woefully inadequate records up to date, popping to the post office with parcels and providing encouragement and support.

Etsy has been a real life changer. I can share my love of vintage with like minded people and bring found objects to a wide audience. I love it when I make a sale and one of my treasures leaves home for a new life. It's even better when someone tells me how much they like what they have bought.

I have more creative projects in the pipeline and plan to add hand-made items with a vintage vibe to the shop. I love to crochet, paint and dye fabrics, take photographs, make jewellery and am learning how to work with bio-resins. Yes, I do spread myself a bit thin but that's what makes life interesting!
