The Shop In January

The shop is looking nice and full and bright at the moment. This year we are really concentrating on creating more of our own stock for the shop. At the moment we've started to make our own badges from vintage books and fabric. We're also looking at making some other bits, including vintage fabric scrap bags, bunting and pocket mirrors.

Why not come and visit us, we're located in the centre of Nottingham, just two minutes away from Old Market Square, there's even a car park around a minutes walk away!

Bird In Borrowed Feathers,

You may have already seen but we bought ourselves, at Bird In Borrowed Feathers, a badge maker! We've been having far too much fun creating badges from our collection of vintage fabrics. At the weekend we visited our local car boot sale and picked up a great selection of vintage books, full of retro illustrations, diagrams and photos, which are perfect for turning into badges!

We've already listed a selection onto our Etsy shop and will be adding more in bigger sizes soon.







We do of course, have a growing selection of badges available in our bricks & mortar shop in Nottingham.

We're Back!

We're back in the shop now after a lovely break over Christmas and the New Year. The shop has had a little rearrange, we've created a little bit more space behind the counter as we plan on making more of our own products within the shop!

We also have a little sale section, with Christmas cards from just £1.00, brooches from £3.00 and all our ready made tote bags are just £5.00! I even spied a few with names so if your quick you'll get a bargain!!

Brand new in our online shop yesterday were these fantastic biscuit Ipad cases by Fayeray Designs!
 There are two to choose from, Custard Cream & Bourbon.
