Jane was the second lovely lady I got to photograph on my coffee and cake filled trip to Cheshire this week. She showed me her room filled with vintage items, some that were passing through and others that she treasured to much to sell, amongst them a Pilkington pottery vase that sparked her love of buying vintage. As you can see at this point Herb the dog was very keen to be a part of the project !
Jane’s passion for buying vintage items meant that she really had no choice but to start a business, the only way she could carry on buying and not run out of space was to also start selling some of treasures she had found !
I love the way Jane describes the appeal of buying and selling vintage items, she finds it an escape from part time employment and a busy home life and its appeal is in the fact that it actually serves no practical purpose but is purely about the beauty of the items and the pleasure that ownership brings.
Jane sells her vintage treasures at various events in Cheshire, you can keep up with where she will be and what lovely items she will have by following her Pearlie Queen Collectables page on Facebook.
