It has been too long since I last blogged, over a year! In that time we have moved house, from the Cotswolds to Lincolnshire, and gained a new arrival in the form of a darling little rescue dog, Mr Cholmondeley Border!
I feared I might be moving to a vintage wilderness, having left behind my usual hunting grounds of Cheltenham (Cotswold Auction Co http://www.cotswoldauction.co.uk/), the Oxford antiques market on a Thursday and the fairs run by Vintage & Handmade http://www.vintageandhandmade.co.uk/ and Time after Time in Stroud http://stroudvintage.com/.
But no! I am saved. I am gradually finding my way round the auction rooms and antiques markets of the East of England, as usual buying mixed lots of items because there is just that one thing I just must have.
Our house move has prompted yet another massive closet clearout and I have been selling off some more items on ebay - the lovely vintage 30s shawl featured above is on offer this week (check me out under seller vintage-vie). But thankfully for the first time in ages I have some space to collect more vintage textiles and fashion, so hope to get back into my vintage shoes with my vintage hat on my head before too long.
Will be updating the blog with more news of the great Vintage East shortly.
