poshtottydesignz's Shop Announcement


My name is Katie and I live in Surrey in the UK with my 3 children and boyfriend.

I am a collector of vintage greetings cards, photographs, ladies vintage clothing, jewelry and Japanese Pose Dolls. I am also a photographer.

Vintage Cards - Over the years I have collected thousands of vintage greetings cards. These date mostly from the 1920's - 1950's and 95% of them are American. Many of these cards are sold in my shop and I often clean up scanned images of very special ones, add my own personal touch and messages and sell these as jpegs through my shop. In order to avoid problems with the new digital laws I have made sure that none of my images are automatic downloads but infact images I have to personally email over in jpeg form myself. This will nearly always be done in less than 24 hours from when the order is placed.

Photographs - I am a collector of authentic original vintage photographs and specialise in photographs which have been used for newspaper reports from the 1920's - 1960's mainly. The best photographs I will scan and restore myself and add my own special touches to bring these photographs back to life. These prints are available for sale in my shop. I also sell prints of photographs I have taken myself, the majority of which feature dolls from my pose doll collection.

Vintage Ladies Clothing - I love the idea of rescuing an item from days gone by and giving new life to it...who wants to look like everyone else!!! I sell vintage ladies clothing in my shop and also upcycled/refashioned vintage clothing which I have altered into something else.
Please ALWAYS double check the measurements given as sizes differ from country to country.

Jewelry - I own a lot of vintage jewelry but my speciality is upcycling something old and broken into something new and bright. I also make jewelry by using the vintage images I have collected over the years. These pieces are very kooky, original and OOAK.

Japanese Pose Dolls - I am a super collector of vintage Japanese pose dolls and have owned at one time over 350 dolls. I have been featured in a doll book called Hello, Cutie by Pamela Klaffke along with some of my pose doll photographs. Occasionally I decide to sell a doll on and when I do these dolls can be found in my shop. For those of you that cannot afford one of these dolls then please check out my pose doll photographs taken from my own personal collection.
