The beginning of Kate and Lexy's Vintage

Firstly, I have to ask you to bear with me as this is my first ever blog!Kate and I have been best friends for a long time and we adore vintage and handmade home ware; cushions, blankets, eiderdowns, pretty vintage china, pressed glass etc but about a year ago we took the plunge and set up our own little empire, with a unit at a crafts and antiques centre in South Cheshire called Dagfields. We both work full time; Kate works in retail and I'm a kitchen designer by trade. We both left university with a degree and high hopes, which were quickly dashed! The reality of an art degree is this: more often than not you're lead towards being a teacher, a graphic designer or start your own business. This can be very hard to make a living from when you need to pay the bills and you haven't yet developed a name for yourself. So 7 years after we left uni, we took the plunge!Better late than never!!

Now Dagfields is a quirky place, mixed with high end antiques and bargain finds, it's a place you need to rummage at, but quite often your time and efforts are not without the spoils. Our unit is in emporium 6 and is most recognisable by saying 'look out for the bed!', as it's the only unit in there with a little white vintage bed (although there's usually a mass of cushions and blankets on there so you might have to search lol). Its certainly an Alladin's cave in there with everything a vintage lover could want!

So this is it!Our first week at Dagfields.

It's moved on quite a bit from this in the last year and change is coming in other areas as we get out there and come to you instead of us selfishly expecting you to always to come us lol! :)

 This is us now!Look how we've changed!!

However, we are also taking Kate and Lexy's Vintage to many fairs around the Midlands, sometimes even further a field.

We have also joined Facebook:
And we're also on Twitter: KateLexyVintage

So please come and see us or get in touch as we're always really happy to hear from our fans xx
