About

Greetings from the small hours

Why would a sleep deprived Londoner spend her downtime collecting and selling vintage?

I’ve been collecting vintage clothing for five years now. Like all good stories, it began with a party: the theme was 20s and my outfit options were limited. Always one for authenticity, I became the custodian of an original art deco cape, an impractical velvet affair with shoulder pads (no, Joan Collins wasn’t the first person to rock these) and an ornate yellow-gold lining. Draped over a high-street frock, it felt immediately glamorous, a link to a bygone age when people attended cocktail parties and sipped Tom Collinses.

Wearing clothing with its own story, whether this started 20 or 80 years ago, is addictive. Today, we rarely pass our treasures down through families so in a way, acquiring an item that was once meaningful to someone adds another chapter to its story, a new link in a family tree.

I'm looking forward to passing on some of these items to a new generation of owners, who'll love them and create their own stories.

Paypal Visa Mastercard American Express Apple Pay Gift card

Returns and exchanges
No refunds, unless an item has been completely misrepresented. Vintage clothing has been previously owned, so won't be in the pristine, unworn condition that brand new clothing will be (but is unique, and often more beautiful than modern clothes!). I do my best to note any flaws and the condition of garments in listings.

Remember to measure yourself correctly before purchasing goods, bearing in mind that clothing should be 1-2 inches larger than your measurements. Please check the following link for further information on how to go about that:
