As mentioned in a previous post, I left my full time job back in May to pursue my vintage dream…. and in December 2015 Vintage Home Living went live!
So what’s been happening in-between?
Workshops are scarce here in Penzance, so when one became available in the summer, we jumped at the chance to lease it. It is situated in a little lane that runs parallel to the promenade.
All of the furniture that I’ve been collecting for years, was now being sorted and it was rather a marathon effort to have enough finished to fill a showroom in time for the Christmas period, but I did it!
I also made a range of soy wax candles in glass jelly moulds and other vintage containers.
I brought in a range of vintage homewares that I thought would make nice presents and laid them out on the furniture.
We had a private launch party on the 4th December and opened for business on Small Business Saturday 5th December 2015.
The candles were so popular that I nearly sold out in the first weekend!
