Beauty and the Twee...

The beauty of handmade items is that everything can be tweaked, twisted and tailored to fit and one thing that Vintage Twee is proud of is the ability to put a different spin on many of the items that are sold. When I did a charity event in Stockport a couple of weeks ago for the Alzheimer's Society, I met the lovely Katie, manager of Salon 21 Tanning and Beauty in Romiley, Stockport. A beautician by day and dance teacher by night, she shares my love for all things vintage and girly and loved the entire range! With a wealth of female clients, many of whom are pampering themselves for special occasions such as weddings, she thought my items would prove very popular and invited me along to her salon with a view to becoming a stockist of Vintage Twee goodies. Half an hour (and a very near leg wax) later I left with a price list and a mission to come up with a beauty inspired take on some of my most popular items.

With a focus on looking fabulous, I created some of my signature tea holders (see above) complete with detoxifying fruit and herbal tea bags, to boost body and mind, and featuring quotes from iconic vintage beauties such as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. I then transformed my English Recipe Cards into bundles of Vintage Beauty Secrets containing tips from the 1940s on how to look good on a rationed budget. Each pack contains 4 cards on how to achieve Sumptuous Skin, Alluring Eyes, Shiny Starlet Hair and Red Siren cheeks and lips, all hand tied together in vintage lace bow and embellished with buttons and tea roses.

These new items make lovely gifts for bridesmaids and female friends alike and are just in time to buy as Christmas stocking fillers too! These, plus select items from Vintage Twee's traditional range, will also be available to buy in the salon as from Saturday 6th November so if you're in the area, pop in and take a look at our amazing display! If you aren't local to the salon but would like more information or to order/stock any of this range, please do drop me an email!

Now, where did I put that price list...
