This photograph shows the intricate neckline and pleating on this gorgeous Carnegie of London maxi dress. It is in burnt orange and is made of a polyester type material. It is approximately a size 12 and looks much better when worn than on the photograph so pop into Vintage Vision and try it on.
This very stylish suede and fur 'Skater' style coat will be in Vintage Vision shop on Friday. It is a mid-tan colour and the lining, cuffs and hem are in dark brown. It is a size 10/12. The fastenings on the front are paticularly attractive as is the neat belt on the back.
We had great fun in the 70s with toys such as Paddington Bear, Emu and Cindy. However, apparently, the most sought-after game was Ker-Plunk which involved moving sticks until marbles were released. Jim Henson's Muppets were a very close second and as many of these toys were related to television programmes they got plenty of advertising. Hundreds of board games were also available including 'On the Buses', 'Dad's Army' and 'The Wombles of Wimbledon'.
With all the colds and flu around this winter why not take a look at our fantastic range of beautiful vintage handkerchiefs. These are so elegant and vary from pretty floral patterns to exquisite lace ones and look so much better than tatty tissues !

Smocking was extremely popular in the 50s and I remember my mother spending hours smocking dresses for me and my sister. This little girl (bet she was a right little madam) looks almost angelic in her new dress. Pattern available in Vintage Vision.
It isn't very often that we get a Shearling jacket in such good condition as this one and we could have sold it a hundered times or more if it had been a smaller size than a 16. The label reads International Suede Coat and it is for sale for £60.
This cosy 1950s full length 'Teddy Bear' coat is extremely heavy and therefore amazingly warm. It is a full length coat which was processed by Martins of London and is size 14/16. It is for sale in Vintage Vision at only £80.

With the cold spell we have sold several fur coats this winter with everyone wanting to keep warm. This amazing coat has just arrived in stock and looks very elegant when worn. However, I don't think it will be available for very long so run rabbit run !
Our current window display done by Sarah one of our young volunteers which features a fantastic 'going-out' outfit for the festive season. The red dress and fur cape make a great outfit and the pearls complete the seasonal look.
