A Nice Surprise

27/06/13 11:30 AM

Remember that old fashioned tradition of writing letters and licking stamps? Remember the days when the postman bought something other than junk mail and bills? Yesterday we came across this page in a vintage book. How brilliant is this? It totally brings us back to the exact reason we love vintage – it reminds us of when times were simpler and even the smallest things were wonderfully exciting. Vintage – we heart you!

In response to all the lovely emails we have received about our site, thank you! And yes we are real people, to prove it we have the pictures, yes indeed.
about us - cherie davies childrens dept

Introducing – Cherie Davies. Cherie was a child of the 70’s although the 80’s is her favourite era. Her childhood ambitions to become a Solid Gold dancer and grow up to marry Bevan from Young Talent Time have sadly not been realised. Although she did get married in Vegas (by Elvis) proving some dreams really do come true.

Favourite TV Show: Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Bold & the Beautiful, Fantasy Island
Favourite Movie: Heathers
Star sign: Cancer

about us susannah cantwell childrens dept

Introducing – Susannah Cantwell. Susannah was born on a sunny Friday in the 70’s, although like many her true love is the 80’s. As a child she imagined that she was Kate Bush dressing up in her mothers clothes, crimping her hair, playing with make up, singing and dancing to ‘Wuthering Heights’ non-stop. Today Susannah’s love of makeup and animal print endures (although in a little more subdued fashion). 

Favourite TV Show: Mary Queen of Shops, Grand Designs, Dr Who
