As you may have guessed, I am a big fan of all things vintage and handmade. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been to a ‘real’ shop and each day I find settling for something badly made and cheap from H&M less and less appealing. I’d rather be unique, thanks.

This is why I’m delighted to see poppytalk is doing a series of blog posts containing 70 reasons to buy handmade and vintage.

If I weren’t on a shopping ban, one of those embroidered clocks would be mine, mine , mine!
