Robyn was so kind and generous with this gift - when it originally didn't arrive in the post due to postal issues, Robyn responded immediately to me and very quickly made me another to be sent to me in time for my holiday! I am very grateful. The amazing gems, lashes and glitter arrived and was presented beautifully. They're made so well and i couldn't wait to wear them. Thanks so much Robyn, I shall definitely be buying from your shop again and will spread the word to family and friends! xx

About

Only the best and brightest clobber will do!

VINTAGEISAVIRTUE
A lifelong appreciation of wacky colours, sparkle and patterned loveliness, teamed up with the thrill of finding treasure started this little venture!

All of the vintage items you see in this shop has a had a little story of it's own already, been handpicked by me, and then lovingly restored and cared for ready for it's next home. The 'make do and mend' mentality is very important to me so the whole ethos of recycling preloved items that would've otherwise ended up in landfill is something I'm super into. By buying vintage you're helping the planet (and bagging a fab one-off piece at the same time)!

Keep checking back for updates as there is a lot more to be added regularly, and if you're looking for something in particular let me know as there are hundreds of items unlisted.
