I am a vintage loving crafter making my dreams a reality

Hi my name is Georgina and I started Georginas Vintage 8 years ago in 2010.

I started by selling beautiful vintage clothes and my handmade items at vintage fairs in and around Reading, I soon discovered there were hardly any vintage fairs so I created 1 called The Reading Vintage Fair and although I worked full time as a teaching assistant I ran The Reading Vintage Fair monthly an eventually stopped after 6 years to concentrate more on my vintage.

In 2010 I applied for a small bank loan so that I could open a shop in Reading, but I was unsuccessful, so I concentrated on doing vintage fairs and selling online.

Although I loved working as a teaching assistant, I felt like it was just getting in the way of my love of vintage and making things, then in May 2017 I found a unit in town in the Harris Arcade and I worked out how much money I would need to start up and I did a little power point presentation to my husband explaining everything and he loved it and agreed to let me use some of our savings and 2 months later I opened Georginas Vintage Couture!

I'm now living my dream! So I get to do full time vintagness and creations!

I source a lot of my stock from vintage wholesalers, auctions and online occasionally.
I hand pick every item I sell, I also make a some of the dresses using my vintage sewing patterns.
I also up-cycle some of my products to make them even more unusual.

Now that I'm in my shop every day I have the time to photograph and measure each thing and then put them into my online Etsy shop and I have time to work on making beautiful things.
