Lots of places :) online auctions, “real world” auctions, Etsy, online and bricks and mortar vintage shops, antique shops, vintage fairs, estate sales, op shops…always on the hunt! I’ve been given some lovely pieces, and built up good relations with dealers. I can write up my vintage hunting tips with some links, if anyone wants them?

It is! We go every year - have a great group of vintage loving friends over there. I’ve done a few lectures for them at the Art Deco weekend…wonderful place, wonderful people.

I do have a few bits and pieces - some plus fours (for a very tall, very slim man!), a few tailcoats (they can be purchased absurdly cheaply and fit women well…I have one that still has its original 1927 tailoring slip) and some hats. I’ll see if I have photographs of any of them. My earliest piece is an 1820s tailcoat.
