A Little Vintage Venture

Well I've been meaning to do this for a long time and finally I've conquered (sort of) the technology and I have a little vintage web shop open for business.

Curlew Vintage is a small virtual shop stocking treasures that I find on my travels and haven't space at home to display or imagine someone else may want to give a home to. From 1940s Christmas decorations to crochet blankets for cosying up with, there's plenty to choose from.
My aim is to keep things affordable as anything vintage seems to have rocketed through the roof recently but things are becoming harder to find.
I'll be adding a new selection every few weeks so keep checking back and I'll put up reminders on the blog.
I hope you enjoy having a browse and if you notice any problems or things that need fixing please let me know! This just a little hobby for me, not a big business but I promise to make sure I'm top notch for service and will get anything to you as quick as a flash.

So here goes... Curlew Vintage is online!

Good luck for your new venture .... those storage pots took me back as I had those when I first married in 1979 .... wish I'd kept them now!

Brilliant idea! I'd love to pick up bargains and vintage treasures like you do but I either lack the time or the inclination and never do so!

I'm tempted by the blanket as we need another one, but the colours are not quite me, I like bolder/brighter!

Hope it's a success, I'll certainly be having a browse every now and then!

Best of luck Steph. You always manage to find some lovely things so think they'l be flying off the shelves. I think your pricing is really fair by the way.

Congratulations, hope it goes well and I will definitely visit at regular intervals. I have just had a peep and it looks great. I think I might already have the Lucy Mouse book, so whoever bought it I can confirm it is lovely!

Ruth said...

Good luck with the new venture Steph - I will have a good look. I love your taste already so I'm sure there will be lots to tempt me away from my strict budgeting!

How Exciting and Good Luck - you are right everything seems to have the word vintage on old or new and they are becoming very expensive.
