Welcome Miss Nora

Coming to my place soon:

Nora the Deco Mannequin


She will look just tickety boo wearing my vintage repro hats!

It’s all about hats

Making vintage style hats has sent me on a search for some of the real thing. Thanks to Poppycock Vintage Hats I now have some gorgeous cheapies… nothing over $20!

Vintage 60s velvet


40s - 60s wool


70s straw bowler


70s raffia contrast hat


I could have bought the lot, but money is tight. Of course if anyone wants to buy me a present…

I found some pretty vintage trims at the local Vinnies so I’ll be making more hats over the next few days and I promise photos and a giveaway!

Hello everyone

Just took some shots of me wearing my favourite Erstwilder brooch so I thought I’d put one on here.

Looking like the 60s


Maybe I should do a “what I wore” thing like other bloggers do. The only issue I have is that they are all gorgeous for example the stunning lass from Skunkboy or Vixen Vintage. I can do lots of shots of my shoes… I have nice shoes.

Hats for ladies post One

Recently I have been sewing vintage hats (from very old patterns) as a new addition to a new store I will be setting up on Etsy. Some of my hats have also gone to Gingerlily Vintage Wares in Alstonville.

Here are a few samples:

I am going to also do the Bangalow Market monthly. It is on the fourth Sunday of the month, the day after the Twilight market.

I want to really encourage people to visit the Lismore Twilight Market as it is a lovely evening and very casual. Stall holders have a lovely time.
