VINTAGE TREASURES AT BUTLERS EMPORIUM

Butlers Emporium Vintage StoreA vintage collector with a stylists eye, my dear friend Rose is the owner of Butlers Emporium in Hasting Old Town ( I used to work there), some of you have visited on your travels to East Sussex – (one lovely lady popped in on her travels to Paris from Japan to collect a mirror I had written about!) the huge old shop used to be a hardware store and iron mongers before Rose filled it with beautiful things collected and gathered from the UK and beyond.Vintage Fabric StoreWhat you won’t have seen in the store is her amazing collection of other things that until now have been sleeping in boxes and drawers waiting for a time when one can part with such treasure knowing it will go to good homes and be transformed into amazing things. I have been helping Rose compile and curate these treasures for her new Etsy Store – with much oohing and ahhing, some gasps and lots of smiles as we unfold beautiful vintage fabrics and rolls of lace, gold thread and ribbons galore.Vintage laceVintage floral fabricMost of the items are one of a kind, vintage haberdashery ribbons, millinery flowers and leaves, floral fabrics that will break your heart and bits and bobs to embellish your own creations.Vintage Tin with KittensTins to store your sewing cottons and pins in and decorative home wares that have stories to tell in their patina. All this amd more photographed on the amazing wooden floor boards in the Butlers Emporium windows. If you pop by on a Monday you will most probably see me hanging over the ledge in the window in a very unladylike fashion with my camera in hand! Gold ThreadVintage ribbonI hope you will pop over and take a look around and bookmark the store, we will be adding new items each week as Rose uncovers more vintage and antique gems. That’s all from me for now, I am off to get bullied by my personal trainer (sister) joke! Happy Tuesday xButlers Emporium Vintage StoreHandmade Inspiration
