Eastern Promises

Hand Painted and bejeweled by the one and only Zinya. 
She is a Genius at resuscitating tired Vintage and the Queen of Craft has been working her magic and creating some killer gems. This baby and many more will be available in our store.  
If only she knew the power of her gifts.

The man, the myth, the legend.

Ken Done.  He may be broke and his artwork pretty much worthless but scattered around the country little fragments of his former glory live on amongst piles of discarded goods.
When unearthed it feels like you have discovered a priceless artifact. Well not quite but you are pretty happy all the same.

Olympic Glory

Discovered just as the Winter Olympics were starting SPOOKY... 
Torvil and Dean hit the heights of Olympic Glory way back in '84 with perfect scores for their Ice Skating routines. This sweatshirt is probably merchandise from a tour that came to town.
We always thought they were an item but apparently both married to different people, who knew?
I think we all just caught up in the glamour, batwings and glitter that is Ice Dance.

Wiggle it

Can you believe I found this in the dress up box at my local op-shop? I don't know what kind of dressing up these old biddies get up to at home but I am sure Keith Haring would have a chuckle seeing them wiggle it in this cut out 80s bandage dress.

Fido Dido

Have you always wondered what happened to Fido Dido?
Apparently he runs a fish and chip shop in Laverton and has only one squiggle left on his head.
Life was good to him in the 80's and if you find Fido Dido like this, life could be good for you too.

Siberian Tiger

In Siberia apparently the Tigers have special mystical powers. I believe it was these powers that led me to these vintage bathers.
The print is beyond words and the cut out sides killa.
I now pray to these wild cats daily hoping they will lead me to the promised land of all tiger print vintage.

All that Glitters...

If 2Pac were alive today I may not have found this Huge Gold Platted Gangsta Bling.
So thanks 2Pac, for giving your life so I may find. RIP.

Birds of a Feather

Everyone loves a Peacok print and this has to be one of the best ever!

Beading, birds, puff sleeves and polkadots. My favorites all in one knit!

It's all in the details. This dress has hand painting, appliques, shells and best of all parrots hanging from the shoulder. Killa.
