Usually Unusual

Usually Unusual

While out shopping this weekend, I couldn’t resist and bought a few new items. As usual, these were unusual! Vintage Partyware can now offer a swan ice sculpture (yes that’s what I bought; well a mould) and two large glass lanterns. I don’t know where my love of all things ‘different’ comes from, but I can honestly say that I’ve never liked the ‘norm’! And this got me thinking - why do we have a ‘norm’? Every single person who has ever lived, or ever will live, is unique. Even identical twins. You are truly ‘one of a kind’. So am I.

A New Start

A New Start

As you may have (but probably not) read in the Lynn News, Vintage Partyware is somewhat of a new start for me. The future seemed bleak after dislocating two vertebrae and trapping a nerve (the sheathes of my vertebrae are still embedded in the nerve and I can tell you, that’s painful). It’s been nearly two years since I first did this and nearly a year since I left work. Despite all the pain killers and hospital visits, my little business is on the up. The idea for the business really did come about because of a wedding I attended and the fact that I’ve been collecting vintage items for many years. I love vintage items and I’ve never been able to resist buying something I like. That’s also the reason why we have so much to offer! All items are in top notch condition because I wouldn’t have liked them otherwise and therefore wouldn’t have bought them. And it’s good...
