My interest in "vintage" became apparent around age 6 when fequenting the local opportunity shop that was next door to our neighbourhood supermarket "Gribbles".

The squeaky plastic woven bassinets and suitcases with no lids contained all the bags and purses,piled up high to meet the bottom of unhemmed rayon frocks and stiff fur coats where they hung above.
