About me

Occupation on-line retailer
Location East coast, United Kingdom
Introduction I run a website called This Vintage Life...selling vintage homewares. In my few spare moments I love reading, gardening and listening to beautiful music. I'm obsessed with old houses, animals and anything that's older than me! You can't keep me away from an auction, an antique fair or a car boot sale where I'll be found rifling through other people's cast-offs for vintage fabric, children's books, old furniture and anything a bit quirky or unusual. I'm far happier looking to the the past than trying to live in the present...not always that easy. I'm married and live in rural Lincolnshire along with a bolshy chicken and a one eyed cat.
