About

Living a creative gypsy life, selling direct to you.

Pretty Flamingo is run by myself, Sally Ayres, with the assistance of a few keys volunteers when it comes to life on the road during festival season and I am very proud to welcome you to my Etsy store.

I aim to bring you the magic of original vintage coupled with the beauty of handmade one of a kind pieces. Working from a Local community workshop from September through April and living life on the road travelling the festival circuit through summer I strive to bring you a flavour of the unusual and a hint of the exotic.

We are all Pretty Flamingos, Beautiful and Unique.

My love affair with all things vintage started from a pair of boots and a framed signature ... Since a child I have been a dancer, only amateur of course, and Ballet was my favourite. On my 18th birthday back in 2003 my dad gave me a framed letter signed and dated by Margot Fonteyn. The letter was written by her thanking The Covent Garden Opera House for hosting her, even included a few spelling mistakes (reminding me of myself) This connection with history sparked a passion inside of me, an intrigue, which I needed to explore. I brought my first pair of bright green 1960s vintage pixie boots that same year in Camden market and I've never looked back.

I started to sell at local fairs in 2013, mostly things I had collected from the UK over the years and at the time my best volunteer was my mum. She encouraged me to sell and set up a small business and supported me in my early days, Oh how we laughed. Learning from my mum is something I will always cherish.
From here I progressed on to selling at Nationwide festivals including Glastonbury and my tiny business has gone from strength to strength.

I'm lucky enough to be involved in a large creative community in Liverpool allowing me to let my creativity flourish and take its natural path. My home for designing and making items such as Flower Crowns and jewellery and also where I have my Bluetooth photography set up is, is a place called Make. A not for profit organisation full to the brim with local artists all working together to build a community based on trust and freedom of expression. My workshop sits inside this hub allowing me access to wonderful minds and a plethora of tools, I am thankful for being part of this space and a credit Pretty Flamingos latest progression to the team at Make!

Slowly but surely I am learning the skills to enable me to make even more intricate jewellery and soon I hope to study silver smithing in the near future so my designs can incorporate precious metals as well as crystals.

In 2018 I am opening my first stand alone shop name after my 2 grandmothers - Freida Mo's - This shop will house everything I love about what I sell and make as well as a small bakery so I can show off my cookery skills!
Wish me luck .....

Hello from me and howdy from Queen Tangerine (side VW camper side kick)

Together we travel in search of unique items and forage forgotten holes from treasure!

From Vintage homeware, barware, clothing, handmade jewellery, crystals, festival fashion and retro footwear I aim to give new life to the discarded and bring each item and its history back to life.

I believe we are all Flamingos, beautiful and unique!
