**News Update And A Request for Help**
I’m super pleased to announce that my first book is now on sale at the illustrious Pie & Vinyl in Southsea. For me this is just as exciting as having it in Liberty’s and the V&A. Home turf means a lot. I’m hoping that when Lauren Lavern visits as promised, she might fancy making a cheeky purchase 😉
I am heading to Birmingham next week to judge and present an award at the National Vintage Awards organised by Kate Molloy of the Vintage Directory. My category is ‘Best Online Vintage shop – Fashion and Accessories’. Are you going? Let me know! I’m already flouncing around trying on frocks.
I’m currently in talks with a French Concierge company who have asked me to resurrect my personal shopping days, which I’m excited to offer again.
A request for help: I am looking for any makers of good reproduction vintage accessories, be they hats, gloves, scarfs, shoes, costume jewels, bags or hair flowers and combs. I am also looking for modern makers with a vintage twist or modern makers that you think will become future collectables as their pieces are so different or unique. Sound like you? Then please get in touch via my contacts page or by emailing email@example.com – pictures essential please.
Lastly I believe I am in this month’s Homes and Antiques magazine (print and online) at the Decorative Living Fair. It was such a well organised event. Like an uber posh Antiques Road show for one’s abode.
Thats all for now folks!
