I’m just about to run off to Circa, where Kate and I will be serving vintage lovers for the last trading day of our year – from tomorrow, we’ll have a bit of a break and the shop will reopen again on Wednesday, January 4th.
The webshop, of course, will still be open and I’ll post orders out once a week unless they’re urgent – if they are, please leave me a message and I’ll do my best.
In the meantime, a wonderful article is in yesterday’s Age and Sydney Morning Herald, by Janice Breen Burns – about my clothing care and restorations. You can see it here.
Here’s a quote I particularly like:
Jenkins subjects every piece she acquires to a marvellous awakening process that revives its beauty in order that it can be treasured again. Her techniques are a mixture of the simple, as a girl might once have been taught by her mother, and the complex, as practised by a craftsman and old-school grandmothers.

Thanks Janice and Rodger!
I’d like to wish everyone the best for the festive season and thank you for your support throughout the year. There are exciting things planned for 2012 and I can’t wait to tell you all about them!
