Your Vintage Life’s May

Well it’s been another busy month in May…so busy in fact we havent really blogged at all!

We traded at our first Milton Keynes Handmade and Vintage fair.We loved it…..meeting such nice people who gave up the sunniest Saturday of the year to shop!


Our latest  for Vintage Life magazine was published. It was an ideas piece for all the must have items for a 1950s home. Read it here.

We busily took photos for the august issue all about 1950s picnics. These bright coloured wool blankets went down a storm with loads of you telling us how much you loved them!

We finished Kitty’s room…a vintage haven for a little girl. Read all about it and see the photos here.

We announced finally we are getting married in only 8 weeks time….eeek! It’s going to be a home-made vintage wedding in a meadow! Please everyone just pray for sunshine!

It was a month for hats! We did a house clearance which unearthed great hand made early 1950s hats including this wedding cap.

Then the very next day we got the call to say would we like to buy another hat haul! Here are some of our favourites.

We moved into our summer house half way down the garden and made it into our office. Mr YVL then painted it shades of green to match our chicken coop and potting shed!

I was snapped at the Shoreditch Vintage Fair.  It was the rainiest day ever so we are very grateful for anyone who braved the elements in the name of vintage fashion.

We sold this great 1950s kitchen unit and table to a set designer. He is recreated a 1950s Pataks advert in Hyde Park for the Jubilee. We are so excited to see it! Then we were asked to re-create a 1950s kitchen room set at the Festival of Vintage in September. We, of course said yes!

Overall it has been a tough month for selling summer frocks due to bad weather but luckily you have all been tucked up in your homes buying coffee tables instead!
