It’s getting a bit cold outside…

Sorry I’ve been a bit quiet on the old blog of late. I’m writing a book at the moment (gulp) and working every hour God sends at the two museums who employ me to try and scrape together the funds to pay for the second year of my masters course. An exciting post to come about vintage and sizing, but for now….LOOK AT ALL THE PRETTY THINGS I AM SELLING!

This week I have some lovely bits and bobs up on both Etsy and Ebay.

New to etsy are some zingy bright 50s dresses, almost all of which are in a size 12 or 14.


50s autumnal dress. Size 8-10.


50s French print dress. Size 12-14. 


50s black and white check dress. Size 12.


50s deadstock housecoat. Size 8 to 10.

It’s all a bit NEW

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are still able to find me here on my spangly new website. After four writing over on I decided it was time for an update. This is something I’ve been meaning to do for an absolute age (I’ve owned this new domain name since January) but simply haven’t got around to! So why the change? Mostly I was fed up with the sheer volume of spam I was getting through blogspot, but also I wanted something that looked a little more professional, and also user friendly. I hope everyone finds this is the case when they are reading it!

So, I would much appreciate if anybody who has links to my blog in their blogroll would kindly change it over to this blog address instead! The same goes for following on bloglovin’ and networked blogs. You can even now follow this blog via subscription! 

AND on the subject of newness I not only have a spangly new blog, but I also have now opened an Etsy shop which is filled with lovely vintage goodies. I am still selling over on ebay, but I will be slowly but surely moving the majority of my business over to Etsy. If you are a liker on my facebook page there is a special discount code you can use there too!




And because my posts are never complete without a few pictures here I am in my New Horrockses (yeah…Oranges AND Lemons)
