Going Global!!

We are always being asked if we sell online and many people just assume that we do (they are the ones who don't know us well!! - think old school, non-techy and thats us!)

But things are changing.....
from now on, the answer to the question "Do you sell online?" is "Yes we do!!!" Woooohoooo....

Yes you heard it here first - we are all set to conquer the world!! Well, that might be overstating it a bit, but for us this is a big step! A HUGE, GIGANTIC, SCARY step!! Aarrrgghhhh!! 

Is it too late to back out?!?!?!

Some people might be wondering what has taken us so long...... Well, we have been worried that we just couldn't do ourselves (and our fabulous collection) justice without the beautiful surroundings of the Lily & Violet Vintage Boutique.  But, heck!! who are we to deprive the world of the Totally Unique, Totally Gorgeous Lily & Violet Vintage? We are surrounded by gorgeousness every day and we want to share it!!

So, here we are - Taking It Global!!!

As with everything we do (and as our wonderful supporters have come to expect), we have no intention on embarking on a run of the mill online shopping venture....Oh no!!! Those 'carts' and 'baskets' are not for us!!  So, how will it work???

Our photography skills are getting better!!
We have been busy photographing our beautiful array of stock. This has become more time consuming than you might imagine; involving impromptu trying on sessions and lots of stopping to admire!!

We have put these photographs, with descriptions, guide sizes and prices on to Pinterest.  You can access our boards from the clothing section of our website:

If you are not a Pinterest user, trust us you will love it!!! Thousands of wonderful (and sometimes crazy) ideas for everything you could be interested in; from frocks to frocaccia!! 

Click something that looks like this...
If you find something you like on our boards, then get in touch and we will be pleased to send more pictures, measurements, a condition report etc. The easiest way to do this is directly from Pinterest but you can also contact us via:

email -
web -
fb -
twitter -
phone - 01453 549962
owl /pigeon - not to be confused with tweeting!!!

It couldn't be simpler!!  Well, ok it could, but to buy vintage with confidence, you really need to have as much information as possible. You can't beat trying it on but if that isn't an option, we think this is the next best thing!!  

If you then want to buy, just let us know and we will send you an invoice to pay via card or Paypal and thats it!  Sit back and await your beautifully packaged box of goodies!!

So for all of you who can't make it to the Boutique, take look at what we have to offer via our website. We will not be featuring all of our stock online, so a mooch around the store will never become mundane - we have new and exciting stock coming in every day.  

If you are looking for something for a specific event or have a particular requirement - get in touch and we will try to help.  We love nothing better than trying to come up with those special vintage gems!!!
