About

My vintage discovery

Vintage was part of my life before I was aware of it, but collecting is more recent.

It started with my arts background, being a modern art sculptor/ installation artist and maker. The art dream made room for family life and I soon found myself still wanting to create and collect objects. (Rescuing found treasures was part of the artwork process.)

I started dressing in vintage clothes a few years ago, first in reproduction outfits or 1980s does 1950s dresses. This led to the collecting of hats, gloves, jewellery . I taught myself sewing during the art years and this carried on to the present. I am now in regular contact with a lovely lady and owner of a local vintage shop for whom I bring back to life some wonderful vintage clothes. Through this, I have increased my knowledge of vintage and just love old buttons, big 1940s 1950s collars, quirky pocket details...

I have my favourite eras, but sometimes the WOW factor makes an item extra special. If it is pretty, different, colourful or simply stunning, it will be in the shop!

The best feeling is when someone gets positive comments from friends, or when an item is for that special day!
