On Etsy since 2013

Welcome to Botanical Vintage. I hope you enjoy browsing this Etsy shop. New found vintage pieces will be added often so keep popping back.
I have been trading in antiques and vintage for over 12 years. I enjoy researching the history and stories behind the items I find. There is always a story around an item and something new to learn. I seek out a variety of quality antiques and vintage, including vintage home decor, vintage jewellery, clothing, and ceramics,, Encompassing all periods and styles, from Victoriana, Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Deco, mid century, and retro modern kitsch.

I moved into an early Victorian house a few years ago I have been renovating and redecorating since. There is lots to be done but I enjoy the process of breathing new life into the old house. I am always on the look out for items which will fit well into the house and attend auction houses, vintage fairs, car boot sales across the country.

Lots of the items I find are also hired out for weddings and events here on the Isle of Wight. Details of the hire and styling services are on my website.

All the items within the shop are selected for their vintage charm and beauty and in great condition. The emphasis for all of my items is on the quality. Often vintage items do show signs of wear commensurate with age. However, I always inspect and highlight any flaws that an item may have.
I love the uniqueness found in each vintage piece and embrace the idea of connecting an item with a new owner to be loved once more.

Welcome to Botanical Vintage!

The Etsy shop is curated with weddings and events in mind, offering vintage and alternative bridal wear, romantic vintage bridal nightgowns, occasion wear, wedding gifts and accessories. So, it’s the perfect place to browse if you have a special occasion to attended and are looking for a great one-off outfit or wedding gift.
Whether or not you are able to discover it, a vintage piece has a story. Steeped in history, the provenance behind a vintage item creates a sense of romance and adds to its charm and uniqueness.

Vintage clothing and gifts within the shop are selected for their character and quality. In the age of mass-production, vintage clothing has a huge role to play in making fashion more sustainable. The quality of vintage clothing is often far greater than the fast fashion produced today. However, sometimes our new-found vintage pieces require some repair so when this is the case these items are sent to a professional tailor before being listed for sale in the shop. The repairs made to a piece will always be stated in the listing. Vintage clothing has such beautiful quality, so wherever possible our motto is “repair for re-wear”.

We only use biodegradable plastic postage bags and will as far as possible use recycled boxes to post but do take absolute care that your item arrives safely.
We love the uniqueness found in each vintage piece and embrace the idea of connecting an item with a new owner to be loved once more.
