New Items on our Etsy Shop!

You may not know but, along with our Winchester shop and our own website, we also have an Etsy Vintage Shop, StardustYearsVintage.

I am trying to avoid duplication between the website and our Etsy shop so you may like to follow the link and see what vintage treasures we have for you there. Of course, they are all available in our Winchester shop but you might not be able to visit so why not take a peek over at Etsy? I’ll be adding items there as frequently as I can as well as continuing to post lovely pieces here on the the website.

This week, I’ve added a pair of retro 1940s style shoes, a 1960s shoulder bag and this stunning Victorian Cape!

Beautiful Victorian Cape, decorated with sequins and beads.

New Today!

Today, I have added two dresses by a couple of my favourite vintage Ready-to-Wear labels.

A lovely dress from Blanes which would be equally ideal for a summer wedding guest or for a trip to Goodwood. You will find her under our 1950s listing.

The second dress is a beautiful 1960s evening gown from Susan Small.

Both dresses are an absolute delight! Just hover over the photo and you should see the full image but if you would like more photographs just email me on

I’m hoping to add more items over the next few days but remember, what you see here on the website is a fraction of all the lovely treasures we have available in our Winchester shop, from the Victorian era right through to the 1990s. So why not come along and visit us!

New Year, New Stardust!

As we swing into a New Year, we’re looking forward to spreading a little more Stardust! And where better to start than the Swinging Sixties! This week we’ve added 4 new stock items to our 60s’ section.

Maybe you feel like channelling your inner Audrey with this fabulous hat by Edward Mann, designer of Diana Rigg’s hats in the 1960s’ TV series, “The Avengers”!

Opening Hours at Christmas

We will be closing at 4pm on Sunday 23rd December to await the sound of reindeer hooves….

We will re-open on Tuesday 8th January but, in the meantime, if you have any queries or need that special vintage treasure before the 8th, please just email me on and I’ll do my very best to help you.

Thank you so much to all our lovely customers and friends for their support through another year. It’s so heart-warming to know that, on Christmas morning, there will be vintage treasures waiting to be opened – and we’ve played a tiny part in getting them there. Thank you so much for making us part of your Christmas, and for being part of ours.

Have a safe and happy time.

Vintage Christmas

If you’re still looking for those special, unique gifts why not pop into Winchester and come and browse our festive goodies! We have something to suit every Elf’s pocket – no matter the size!

We close on Christmas Eve for that all-important present-wrapping so there’s still time to find that one-of-a-kind gift in our shop.

Just a few of our vintage treasures – a treat that will go down, well, a Treat!
