New Year, New Stock!

A Happy New Year to you all and I hope you have enjoyed the holidays! It's back to work for most of us now but we shouldn't complain, there's only so many times you can watch Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and only so many mince pies you can eat!!

I've been busy sourcing new vintage stock for the website and have added a varied selection today. There are some very pretty accessories; the beautiful hanky case shown above is part of a boudoir set; the handpainted roses are exquisite!

There is a distinctive boudoir theme...

...and pink is popular too!

These pretty chocolate boxes were a lucky find. This one has delicate pink roses...

...and this one has sprigs of mimosa!

More vintage stock coming soon, in the meantime have a lovely weekend wherever you are and whatever the weather!

  7. Hi, I just love those chocolate boxes.. I hate January for being such a 'lean' month, otherwise I'd be over to your shop immediately! x

  8. Clare your store items are scrumptious!

    Have a beautiful day! Nancy

  9. I like the chocolate boxes, but I realy love the pansies are very,very
    Have a nice week

  10. I had to write and tell you that I went to your website because I adore vintage....and the music stopped me in my tracks. It was so familiar, a blast from the past. And then I saw the BBC Radio credit at the bottom of the page.
    I am rife with nostalgia. I remember Housewives Choice from my childhood.

    Cheers, Colette

  11. Hello Clare. I'm still going on the Christmas chocolate eating mound, but am back into a somewhat more normal routine today. You always find such pretty things for your shop. I'm going to take a peek

  12. Happy New Year to you Clare!

    Hope you had a great Christmas Celebration and that New Year`s Eve was fun and warm. We were still 5 of us, and we had so much fun together. For the ever first time I did not go to sleep before 5in the morning! Yes I Know, That`s very late..

    What a wonderful start at the new year, finding so many pretty treasures. Love the chocolate boxes! Were a lucky find indeed. I am very fond of white and pink roses, would fit perfectly here..Myself have not been very lucky finding teacups with roses lately. You know I collect them.
    Can`t wait until Flea Market season begin!

    I wish you good days Clare, I hope your shop is doing great.

    Kiss from Aina

  13. You always have such pretty things! I love looking at the photos of all your treasures!

  21. Good day, sun shines!
    There have been times of troubles when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
    I have never imagined that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
    Now, I feel good, I begin to get real income.
    It's all about how to choose a proper partner who utilizes your money in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

    You can ask, if there are such firms? I have to answer the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them: [url=]Online Investment Blog[/url]
