Sew Very Vintage is a unique collaboration of three businesses under one roof. This makes our range of stock exciting with an eclectic mix of vintage, vintage inspired and new stock from a range of suppliers. We also offer craft supplies and various craft workshops which take place in our local studio. We have been trading in Wallingford since July 2016.
MEET THE TEAM
Devon @ The Button Room
Im a mum of two small boys and I suffer with neuropathic pain. Having a disability has given me the ideal opportunity to start up a business that I really enjoy.
My Business, ‘The Button Room’, is filled with lots of button-inspired products, which is wide and varied, including mirrors, jewellery boxes, OOAK art pieces, and I also include items that I feel hit the ‘button’ when it comes to style. With a passion for flamingos, anything retro and a love for the unique.
I hope you enjoy viewing my designs of handmade necklaces, bracelets, earrings and hair slides.
You can follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.
I hope you enjoy browsing our site and looking at our products as much as I enjoy making, collecting and sourcing them.
Madeleine Tanner @ Createability
After many years working in retail management and crafting for pleasure, I decided the time was right to take the plunge and set up my own craft business Create-ability.
My lifelong passion for all things creative inspired me to run craft workshops while selling exciting, inspiring and unusual craft products. I studied fashion design at Art college and later acquired an NVQ in carpentry & joinery but developed a love of textiles and mixed media work over the years. In May 2016 I became a certified trainer of the Powertex range of Art supplies & run workshops from my studio as well as undertaking commission work. Much of my work is inspired by nature and the countryside, where possible I incorporate recycled materials making something disposable into an art piece.
Hayley @ Frocks in Swing Time
I formed my business “Frocks in Swing Time” due to my passion for vintage fashion, especially frocks from the 1920s-1950s. I really enjoy hunting out both genuine vintage dresses and researching the very best vintage style clothing brands, in order to create a stunning collection of beautiful vintage style garments.
I started out trading at small vintage fairs in Oxfordshire and then progressed to larger events such as Retro Festival. After receiving amazing feedback from many customers who really appreciated my personal approach to styling, I decided to take the plunge and take on my own permanent retail space as well as continuing to trade at Vintage Festivals. I really enjoy styling customers for weddings, special occasions or simply cheering them up with advice on the right styles for them. I hope you like what you see on our website and that you will pay us a visit at our shop in Wallingford sometime soon! Xxx
