Our vintage online family on Facebook and Twitter have watched this growing obsession and even send through little treats to add to the collection – talk about pay-it-forward loveliness that lifts the spirits after a long day 🙂

So what’s your obsession of the Vintage kind and how can we help you?

Look for us on Facebook  The Vintage Cloud and The Jewellery Cloud.

All of the above supporting GCSE business studies, a teenage and middle age interest in the social media world at large. A fascinating way to be able to explore different mediums and sell our preloved jewellery. Sales of our jewellery have now reached, Australia, The Falkland Islands, America and across the United Kingdom all without having to rent premises or become a stuffy old business (says Dad).

We are championing a “bring back the brooch campaign’ and try to post a different brooch each day and wear one with every (well nearly every outfit).

Our favourite of the week is pictured and was sold before the hour was out and is now finding its way to a new home as we type.

Watch put for more posts and let us know what you think.
