New Stockists - The Vanity Box Salon and Shop






We are so excited to announce that we will be stocking the brand new Vanity Box Salon and Shop housed within the Antiques centre in Battlesbridge!


For those of you who haven't heard of Vanity Box (have you been living in a cave?!), they are a company that offers vintage hair and make-up. Pretty much the whole package! They have worked with some amazing companies and models over the years, including Vivien of Holloway, Outerlimitz, Bettina Scarlett and even on the West End!


I have been fortunate enough to get to know Verity (the Hair half of the Vanity Box), over the last few months. She is an absolute doll. She is opening a salon at the very picturesque setting of the Antiques Centre in the very quaint village of Battlesbridge, which happens to be about 10 minutes from where I live! As well as the salon where Verity will work her magic creating amazing hair do's, there will also be the shop where, as well as our lovely lingerie, you can also purchase things from around 12 other companies, including clothing from Bernie Dexter and jewellery from Bow and Crossbones.

I was lucky enough to have my hair done in a very retro up-do by Verity recently for my Grandad's wedding and I fell in love with it! Even my Husband said I should have my hair done at least once a week by Verity. From my husband, this is probably the nicest compliment my hair will ever recieve...I am going to do a special blog post to show you all my amazing hair very soon, and also the Lindy Bop dress that I wore for the day.

As well as the Vanity Box Salon, the Antiques centre also houses Rock the Frock, which is an insanely awesome vintage bridal boutique and I wish it had existed when I was getting married! It is run by the lovely Karen, and she sources the most amazing and unique wedding dresses and accessories, vintage inspired and true vintage to boot.


Battlesbridge really is a treasure trove of amazingness. There is the Battlesbridge Custom Culture show on in a few weekends and I am really hoping to go....but I know i'll just end up spending all my money! #worthit

So what are you waiting for?! Head to Battlesbridge and go and visit this treasure trove of vintagey goodies housed within!
