About

A philosophy of self-made happiness

The English Bohemian is a place for many things - antiques and vintage, home decor and fashion, art and jewelry... but all unified under my own aesthetic (bohemian, earthy, feminine) and focusing on the enduring beauty of vintage. The pieces I offer come both from my own collection and from my trips out in the wild world. I also enjoy making jewelry now and then, again using vintage beads reclaimed from broken jewelry; taking beautiful old beads and re-working them into modern pieces.

Here in my shop it's a little country cottage, a little bohemian crash pad. Pale colours, natural textures, soft shapes... I believe the way we express ourselves to be the key to living a more fulfilled life, whether that expression is through our home, wardrobe or creative urges. The scent of a candle, the colour of a scarf, the way the light flashes on antique beads or the pattern of a vintage dress… these are all small details that make life more beautiful - and that’s always a good thing, right?

Frequently asked questions

Shipping

Shipping is added to your purchase automatically when you click 'add to cart', you can also view it in the 'shipping and policies' tab. Additional shipping is added when more than 1 item from my shop is in your cart however Etsy does not give me a calculated option for this, so if you think the shipping is a little over please contact me and I can fix it for you.

Returns + refunds

I do allow items to be returned and refunds are granted in most of these situations, please see my policies tab for full details.

The condition of my items

Everything in this shop is vintage or antique (or handmade from such!) and has by nature lived a full life, sometimes in practical service. As such, minor imperfections are part of the charm and I will always note anything I consider a flaw. My pictures are large so you can click on zoom (tap if you're on a device) and see everything clearly.

My home is smoke free; I do have a cat though I try to keep him off the vintage. ;) I burn incense (good stuff only!) but I store inventory in a separate room. Never-the-less, there may be a very light spiced and smoky fragrance to textiles.
