Christmas is Coming

So there has been an appallingly long break in my blog but I do have fair reason. The top secret project for Mr Cal was none other than a producing job on ITV’s Susan Boyle: An Unlikely SuperStar. The director and I worked closely with Susan for a few months following her around Rome, NYC, Scotland and Shanghai. We filmed all sorts including China’s Got Talent watched by over half a billion people! Total madness. But now things are winding down and I have a chance to fully focus on Mistress Vintage and getting ready for Crimbo whoo hoo.

MV is now up and live on the Folksy website. For those of you who don’t know the website, it is site which promotes the handmade work of UK artists and is fab for those of you that want to purchase from a UK based company and support British craft. So check out Mistress Vintage on Folksy and shop local!

Several new collections have finally been unleashed. Stag of Swag time pieces are still ticking along (sorry) but now there is the new and fabulous Gewgaw and Gimcrack – a great mix of vintage and antique pieces and the skull collections: Skulduggery and the bracelet collection Skulls and Wonders. Items are added daily to Etsy, Asos Marketplace and Folksy so there’s something new and exciting to take a peek at every day -

With Christmas just round the corner MV has something for everyone from £4 stocking filler earrings to higher end pieces which would make great unique gifts. Christmas promotions and competitions will be starting from the beginning of December so keep an eye on the blog and facebook for updates as well as news about fairs and stockists!

But most importantly and more exciting than any of this is the news that a MV has been joined by a new team member...Squid. Needless to say the 2 other hairy members, Monkey and Alfie are none too impressed by being outdone by someone a couple of inches high but who can resist a face like this?


Love vintage, love shopping, love fashion, love shoes than look no further than Jeffrey Campbell. It seems people can’t get enough off the Lita. Ok so they are everywhere but for good reason. They come in a whole range of amazing colours, add stacks of height and believe it or not are super comfortable. I have them in black but fully intend to get myself every pair possible. I am currently lusting after the Lita spikes – dribble!
