The plan was to sell up and move out of London, who knew that selling and buying a new home would be such a challenge…..

 vast stash of fabric and vintage haberdashery

I had to make my big business plans smaller and more manageable and my vast stash of fabric, so vintage haberdashery was the answer, Lampshades!

First on Etsy and Greenwich Market and then Whitstable Harbour Market ( which is just a glorious place to make lampshades).

In 2019 we opened the doors to The Little Shop Of Vintage a mix of vintage clothes and bridal wear.

Handmade lampshades using vintage and retro / quirky , and designer fabrics.

Pop in the shop!

Furniture painted with the lovely Frenchic paints, the colours are amazing and super easy to use.

The range of paint and products are entirely safe to use even on children toys and furniture.


I’m thrilled to be an Official Stockist and look forward to sharing these lovely paints with you.

In October I became a stockist for Cole & Son and Borastapeter wallpapers, I have their beautiful pattern books in the shop.
