Hello from us both. Milly Roses and Dottie Custard welcome you to our new blog. We hope you will join with us on our musings, flights of fancy, whimsical tales and, of course, our chats on all things vintage and nostalgic.

As some of you may know, our friendship has developed over the years as has our enthusiasm and love the flotsam and jetsam of forgotten years, and we now find ourselves proud owners of our own vintage Emporium.

Our daily chats not only revolve around our ever changing shelf display, but often lead us on all sorts of adventures, imaginary and otherwise. Those that are just too silly, like the ones involving hot air balloon flights along the coast, our imaginary cottage that we share in our dotage, and our frequent cravings for tea and cream cakes, we shall leave behind in the stockroom - but there are oodles we'd love to share.

So if you fancy grabbing a custard cream (they are, of course, essential) and a comfortable chair, please join us on our trips down memory lane…
