Vintage dresses, jewellery and accessories as far as the eye can see ....

Well, what a busy (and expensive) few days i've had. On Thursday we went to check out a new vintage dress supplyer and came away with bag loads of beautiful vintage dresses. Lots of fantastic vintage Seventies maxi dresses, some proper retro Eighties 'power' dresses, some darling vintage Fifties full-skirted dresses and even a few retro 1980s cat-suits, and vintage jackets ... oh... and some very cool vintage 1960s and 1980s leather jackets too!
Then on Saturday, I met up with a lady who supplies me with vintage jewellery, and bought some fabulous vintage 1930s Art Deco diamante rhinestone necklaces and bracelets. She had some other wonderful stuff too ..... so I wound up buying that too! So we got vintage powder compacts, accessories, brooches, jewellery sets, evening bags and more!
I'm, writting descriptions and taking pictures of these things this week, so they'll be coming in store within the next month.

This week I've added more new stock to the website. We do this on Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays, and the items go into the New Arrivals department for about 1 week before going into their proper department, you can click the link on the right of this page, marked New Arrivals to go straight there, so now you know!

This week we have more antique mother of pearl shell handled butter knives and pickle forks - these are divine and look beautiful with antique or vintage mis-matched china and linen! More very pretty vintage 1930s hankys, in linen, silk and cotton. Come and see the Three beautiful antique Victorian evening purses, the bird one nearly didn't make, I almost kept it, I love it some much! We also added more vintage dresses - lots of different styles and eras. Finally, we're adding some homewares too - vintage glasses, dressing table items, kitchenalia and loads of other things too!
I think that's all for now ...

Where has she been ?.....

Hello Again!

Sorry i've been away for so long ... feel very bad ...... very busy ...... lots of excuses ..... blah blah blah ..... boring!

Anyway, here I am back again, trying to get to grips with blogging ... it's all a bit new and it'll take me a little while to get the hang of doing it, so please bare with me!

A bit of an update for the last 2 years!:

Finally managed to produce baby after several attempts.

We moved business into new premises, with showroom & proper storage, the baby objected to sharing her cot with vintage handbags - unreasonable child!

I now have a lovely assistant who works with me quite a lot and keeps me organized!

Re-branded the business, so we're now Steptoes Dog Vintage Wares, with a lovely new logo, all thanks to the guys at Lazanby & Brown in York.

Re-designed the website, so it has a neat new look and fly-out menu on the homepage so you can access all of the departments from there - cool and easy to use too!

We now offer a stylish gift wrap service for the small accessories and jewellery, to save you the hassle of doing it yourself.

We also now stock a range of greetings cards so you can order your vintage gift, card and wrapping and have it sent direct from us to your recipient - how easy is that!

Please rest assured that whilst i may have been really slack in the blogging department, i've been working really hard sourcing vintage treasures, but, more about that later!

In meantime, as a penance for being so slack, i'm going to eat a pot noodle - i've haven't done that for about 2 years either!

Don't forget to check out the website, we have 8000+ genuine antique and vintage items on there!
