Fabulous Vintage Millinery!!

French vintage millinery accessories.

It has been a crazy week, a new window for Kleins Perfumery to launch their new fragrances from Honore des pres. More progress on our new wedding range (to be revealed very soon), new Sweet Dreams lavender pillows all ready for packaging, we finalized the artwork for our new business cards and stickers and we have FINALLY sorted out the mess in the store room and office. Phew!

In the middle of all this we have received our latest shipment of FABULOUS French vintage millinery and a few other treasures for good measure. Most of these items are very rare and unique, so if you are interested in purchasing any of them please ring or visit the store. 

Antique silk ribbon with ivory diamond pattern, an amazing collection of Vintage hat pins made in Paris, beautiful feather accessories in chartreuse and emerald green and we just adore the hat pin with the little bananas.

Beautiful vintage ribbons, casein buckles and an exceptional collection of Vintage feather accessories and hat pins in lovely shades of pink, lilac, purple and burgundy. The shapes of these accessories are just amazing, many are art deco and are quite sculptural.

More stunning millinery, silk and velvet trim, vintage moire ribbon, vintage rhinestone buckles and sweet antique glass beaded wire flowers.

Classic navy blue and ivory check ribbon, lovely double cut casein vintage buttons, fabulous art deco hat pins and feather accessories and a lovely Victorian 3 prong buckle.

Stunning antique lace and mirror back buttons, extra wide vintage silk ribbons, hat accessories and pins and antique silver filigree sacred hearts, such beautiful colours.

These French vintage ribbons are just so lovely especially the black embossed ribbon on the right, it is early Edwardian silk or silk rayon blend, it is one of the loveliest that we have seen.

This antique French cotton guipure is just stunning, very delicate and beautifully made, and the most lovely shade of cafe au lait. It is sitting on top of some lovely antique chocolate moire rayon fabric that has also just arrived.

These are lovely handmade vintage Brussels lace, they are yoke (v shaped) appliques, ideal for decorating the neckline of a dress or blouse. They are in perfect condition in shades of ecru, cream and ivory.

We have also finally received new stock of these lovely vintage silver filigree sacred hearts.

What a fabulous week!


  1. How utterly divine. The colours in those feathers, particularly the chartreuse are giving me a thrill; the ribbons I can tell will feel silkily marvellous; and the hat pins are to die for!

  2. What a marvelous array of goodies you post here. I will come back to see more. Such art!
