Dreweatts Auction. Put the date in your Vintage Diary!


The past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. The phone has not stopped ringing and I have been driving miles to view and collect beautiful and stylish items for the Dreweatts Vintage Fashion and Textiles Auction which is due to take place in Spring 2012. Flossie (my french mannequin) is wearing one of the many vintage cashmere jumpers that will be in the sale. Teamed with a vintage silk scarf and jaunty 70's wool beret.


 We have stunning leather bags.... vintage perfume (some bottles are half full)... or half empty, depending on how you look at it!



 Oodles of shoes....... in all styles and colours and decades....


Labels include Ferragamo, Rayne (of London), Harrods, Dior and more.....







 Vintage Dior stockings in their original boxes....



If the fashion accessories have got you excited, just wait until you see the dresses, coats and Textiles!!!

Hi Lizzie, yes I was at the V&H fair and I saw your stall and was going to say 'Hello' but you were surrounded by customers at the time. Hopefully, I 'll catch up with you at another vintage fair.

Hi Lizzie,

Lovely to see you at the V&H fair - sorry we were a bit rushed! We both enjoyed ourselves and I was remarkably restrained with my purchases! Hopefully see you again soon!
