New Launch! Vintage inspired accessories from the Peggy & Lena range and Peggy & Lena parties.

Peggy & Lena Accessory launch at the Morecambe Seaside Festival 10th/11th Sept. Please visit us at The Vintage Fair, The Platform, Morecambe. Saturday midday-5pm, Sunday 11-4pm.



Peggy and Lena were our much loved Grandmothers.
 
Peggy was a Lancashire mill worker and had, some might say, ideas above her station. She had a fondness for sumptuous satins, lace and other fancy bits and bobs. Peggy was also a thrifty woman who loved to sew and made all her own clothes, cushions and curtains, but she always drank tea from a china cup and saucer.
Lena on the other hand, from a wealthy suburb in the West Midlands, had a ‘bob or two’. She had a vast range of handbags, scarves, costume jewellery and hats. Lena loved to dress up whether cleaning, shopping or attending a party. She loved brightly coloured fabrics, bold prints and large glittery brooches. 

 


The Peggy and Lena collection reflects the personalities of our two grandmothers'; a combination of the romantic imagination and creative thriftiness of Peggy and the decorative and colourful extravagances of Lena. The collection features genuinely vintage dress fabrics, buttons and brooches from times gone by; each piece is unique and lovingly made by hand.

Please visit our 'Accessories' tab for pictures and prices of our current Peggy & Lena range. We will regularly be adding new handmade stock. Don't forget we can also create bespoke pieces for any special occassion, just email peggy&lena@itsybitsyvintage.co.uk

Want to try your hand at making your own unique vintage inspired accessory in the company of friends and loved ones? Host a Peggy & Lena party!


 A Peggy & Lena Party makes a perfect hen or birthday party activity and is simply a great excuse to get creative with a group of friends. If you are a bride just think of the photo opportunities for your ‘big day’, you and your gaggle of hens wearing their vintage creations.
The purpose of a Peggy and Lena party is for you to come away with something beautiful and unique and to have fun in the process.
The parties start at £30 per head for three hours which includes all gorgeous vintage inspired materials and your finished headpiece to take away. We can come to you or we can organise a venue for you, which ever you prefer.
To make sure you have the full Peggy & Lena vintage experience, all materials are set out in beautiful vintage china, plates, dishes bowls and tea cups for you to rummage through and get inspired.
In addition we can also arrange a vintage style afternoon tea for you too. Prices are approx £10 per head. A Peggy & Lena Party requires a minimum of 6 people.
