Countdown to the Vintage Bridal Fair!

It's less than a week until our first bridal event of 2013, and we can't wait because it's the Decadence Vintage Bridal Fair again, this Sunday 3rd March!

I always say this but it's true - it's one of my favourite bridal events as it's full of the loveliest, most beautiful, original and unique vintage businesses & sellers, offering genuinely special services and perfect vintage items for couples tying the knot.

We have so many new designs to show for the first time at a bridal fair, along with lots of stationery designs, samples and ideas and we're really looking forward to chatting to brides and grooms, as well as spending the day at the fair's beautiful venue too! 

The Fair is at Belfast's Malone House, Barnett Demesne - a stunning georgian mansion that we've created stationery for many weddings held there. Might be a good chance to check out a prospective venue at the same time!

Hope to see you there!

A little wedding thank you

I'm very excited that the first of our 'ready to go' wedding stationery packs is now available to order online from our Etsy shop!
'Vintage-inspired Postcard' wedding thank you notecards, personalised with the new married couple's name, are now available to order straight from Etsy.

The cards are ready to order in packs of either 25 or 50 cards, but because we're used to being a custom-design stationery company, of course there's the option to order more or less according to requirements, along with changing colours to match the wedding theme if required too!

The back of the notecard also features a 'Post Card' design taken from the back of one of my own antique postcards, dating from around the 1900's. I do love to keep things as authentic as possible and add those little extra touches where possible.
There will be plenty of ready to order wedding packs, including invitations, coming to our Etsy (& Folksy) shops soon. Will keep you updated!

You can find the cards in our Etsy 'Weddings' section or visit

Poster Girl!

Poster girl, me? Not usually...but strangely this time it's true!

A fellow trader & friend from St George's Market, also runs "Belfast Times"- a fantastic events & listings site for everything going on in Belfast. He was just sent a press release with 'official' photograph to match, to promote Valentine's crafts at the market. He tweeted me earlier to let me know the photograph was of me at my stall!

I remember last summer a photographer taking pictures around the market but didn't expect to see this! It's really lovely to have my card & stationery stall be shown as the photograph to promote the craft side of the market, so I'm feeling very honoured :)

You can check out the original post and the rest of the Belfast Times website here:

And don't forget to call by for Valentine's Day cards & gifts!
