  1. After a well deserved rest at Christmas, we return to the vintage scene in February, with the highlight of the month being the Valentine's Day Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair. One of the best things about having a rest between fairs is the time that can be spent gathering lots of truly unique and high quality vintage items for the year ahead. This year has been no exception! Think romantic 50's dresses, elegant evening gowns, amazing handbags and exquisite shawls. Our stock just keeps getting better and better! Come and see us in the Finsbury Town Hall on February 14th 2016 11am -5pm at what I think is is one of the most prestigious fairs in the country. A bargain at £4 (£2 with NUS card) 10am entry to trade/buyers only £5.

  2. Wow! We had such a great day at Kelham on Saturday-the beautiful Kelham Hall really lent itself to a vintage Extravaganza and the atmosphere was wonderful. We met lots of lovely new customers and fellow enthusiasts; notably a wonderful group of ladies and gentlemen, one of whom kindly sent me this amazing picture of herself in her new purchase from us, whilst undertaking an impromptu photo shoot in the fabulous surroundings! A special thank you to the lady concerned for allowing me to use her photo! A big thank you to Britain Does Vintage for organising such a super day. We are looking forward to joining the Lincoln fair this Saturday! (See the events page for further details.)
