Getting Lippy with Andrea Garland
I don’t know about you, but here at Vintage Secret we are in the habit of buying up all sorts of gorgeous vintage knick- knacks, even if we don’t have any real use for them.Putting things on a shelf to look pretty is all well and good, but what could be more stylish and environmentally friendly than re-using vintage packaging? Andrea Garland fills old pill pots, sewing tins and other containers with her wonderful, all natural beauty products; lip balms, muscle rubs and body balms.Genius! And when you’ve used up all the lovely stuff, just send your tin back to Andrea and she’ll refill it for less than half the original price.You can buy Andrea’s products online or at the Upmarket off Brick Lane most Sundays. Speaking of which- Vintage Secret will once more be gracing the pop up vintage market in the Boiler House on Brick Lane. Friday and Saturday, 11-6, Sunday 10-5. See you there!!!
