After months of squirreling around in thrift stores, rummaging through tables and racks at local markets, and receiving package after package of treasures from my lovely mother, I'm finally able to reveal the purpose behind it all....

Say hello to 'The Dotty Apron' - my new label and business venture!

The Dotty Apron is your place to go for all things vintage, thrifted and vintage inspired. Think pretty aprons. Crochet doilies. Retro kitchenware. Lovely old books.

In among the vintage treats there will also be limited run handmade products using vintage or thrifted materials - stay tuned for our first range of children's cushions!

To keep up to date with our vintage adventures you can 'like' us over on Facebook.

To shop for vintage treats we have an Etsy store (more items to be added soon!).

Or to see the current range in full please visit us at the North Melbourne Market next Sunday 23 January between 10am and 3pm - there will be clothing, homewares, lovely old buttons, lots of aprons, and many more treats!
