Very Downton Abbey, Very Agatha Christie!

Just posted – a stunning Lister’s 1920s black velvet coat! Very Downton Abbey and very Agatha Christie!  I have kept this coat close by me in the shop because I love her so much but the time has come for her to be loved and enjoyed by the right person.  So, I have finally priced and labelled her and am preparing myself for the inevitable tears!

30385 Stunning Vintage 1920s Coat

Of course, if you click on our 1920s section on our menu, not only will you find this gorgeous coat but you will also find a lovely little jacket.  I could just imagine Lady Mary wearing this jacket as she went for an Autumn horse-ride across the Grantham Estate!

1940s Dress

Just added to the website, today, is a lovely late-1940s grey day dress by Blanes.  She has a few issues but I think, for a lady over 70 years’ old, they are pretty minor – but why not click on the link and see for yourself

In the meantime, I shall be adding some 1920s items so do check back in a few days! I do try to add items more frequently than it might appear. The problem is, I take the photos, load them, write the text and then a customer comes into the shop and buys them before I’ve been able to post them on the website!  It’s funny how frequently that happens.  Here’s an example … I was all ready to post these vintage wedding garters, today, and a customer purchased them this morning!

So, if you’re looking for anything in particular or you are interested in a specific item or period, please just email me.  If we don’t have it, or you don’t fancy buying it, that’s not a problem.  At least you’re not missing out on a potential gem because you can’t get into the shop.  I’m very happy to take photographs of items – I need the practice!
