So Vintage

Mehdi and Korreen

This morning two friends and I took a very mini road trip out to Te Awanga to visit a gorgeous vintage store recently discovered through the "grapevine". The charming owners, Mehdi and Korreen have a wonderful eye and have filled this huge space with an amazing collection of eclectic vintage stuff, mainly found in France. Have a look at their Facebook page, click HERE and do call first as they will tell you their opening days and welcome you very warmly.
And what did I come home with? Two treasures but only one can be shown (see top) as the other is a present for someone who sometimes reads this blog.
Sorry the photos are not in the order I wanted and as I have little patience for this sort of thing, I just can't go back and sort it!

Last Days

1970's Glamour

Tomorrow, Saturday, is the last day (well, maybe a few hours on Sunday) of Pop, our pop-up shop in Havelock North. We three  friends have run Pop for going on two weeks and we all agree on how much we have enjoyed the face to face contact with our customers. Please click HERE for a link to our Facebook page and keep looking for details for the next Pop, not sure when or where but it will happen. Thanks again, its been lovely to see you all.

Pins and Pop



I have been making more pincushions, bigger this time with lambswool fill and soft felt bottoms, each patchwork top is finished with a vintage button. Along with some of my collection of vintage buttons and other Sweet Mary handmades, they will be for sale at the October Craft&Design Market next to Hawthorne Coffee Shop in Havelock North this Saturday from 9am - 1pm.
On the same day, Pop will be open 10-4 so pop along to the village this weekend and check us out.
