About Us

My name is Julie and I began dealing in antiques years ago here in the UK, well before the internet, when I used to post lists of stock with accompanying photographs to collectors. I still do on occasion!
However, I began as a collector of antique sewing tools when in my teens. In those days in the UK  ( pre-decimalisation! ) pieces were a few pounds and easily affordable with saved up pocket money and the bank of mum and dad. Antique Fairs didn't exist either so I just visited favourite dealers on days out.
The internet has made such a difference and I now have like minded friends all over the world. I love hunting for all sorts of antiques and collectables so if you have a 'wants list' let me know and I'll try to cross a few off for you!


Although I specialise in antique sewing tools and etui I do appreciate other antiques so you will find an eclectic mix of curios in my shop.

Good hunting and thank you for dropping by!


I have also had a shop on Ruby Lane for a number of years using the same shop name however all the items listed on there are listed on here first.

 These are the last few of 84 Trust Pilot reviews from Ruby Lane.
