My love of vintage homeware came from my gran: I remember her kitchen filled with blue and white Cornishware and her bedroom brimming with huge faded roses on Sanderson fabric.
Her twin set and pearl style has stayed with me, I still treasure some of her belongings but never stop looking for a pretty piece of fabric or a shabby bit of homeware that has been well loved and deserves a second chance to provide pleasure.
Sadly there is a limit to how many pretty jugs and cushions a lady living alone in a flat needs so I decided that rather than stopping my hunting I would sell on some of my finds. It is hard selling on things I love but its such a great pleasure knowing they are going to someone that will appreciate them as much as me.
I love doing The Vintage Village and chatting to people about my finds and knowing they are going on to another happy home. My gran was a huge advocate of afternoon tea, linen table cloth, rose tea set and homemade cakes on moulded glass cake stands, so in her honour I came up with the name and am eternally grateful for her influences at an early age. even if I've never been able to pull off a string of pearls!
