Here are a few more of my favourite scarves from this site – http://www.marshmallowmountain.com – a real eclectic mix with something for every taste!
I was contacted this week by http://www.Marshmallowmountain.com, an online vintage store based in London. They loved what I do and asked to write a feature which you can see on their blog. It’s a great site for all vintage enthusiasts with really unusual items of superb quality and well worth a browse if you are in the trade or simply looking for that elusive gift – for yourself or another! I’ve shown four of their scarves here today and will add more over the weekend.
They have almost 700 vintage silk scarves (376 currently in their ebay store) with new items being listed every couple of weeks, categorised into patterns and themes to enable you to navigate their wide choice easily. They date from the 1950s onwards and include the classic British heritage brands of Liberty, Jacqmar and Richard Allen as well as French and Italian luxury labels.
For a limited period they are offering you a 10% discount off any scarf purchased in their store. Just type in the code Scaramouche at the checkout. The offer ends midnight Sunday 8 December 2013.
Here is a photo of my latest commissioned vintage scarf cushion to act as a reminder that they make good presents, especially if you have a family-owned scarf that never sees the light of day but means too much to throw away.
Some customers have said to me that they’ve found scarves in bits at the back of drawers after moths have had a fine time with them so don’t delay and check them out today!
If you want to give them away to a good home (me!) I’d be happy to donate what I would have paid to a charity of your choice – the Philippines Disaster Fund comes immediately to mind.

Now on to the next sale…my sister’s sale in Chesham should not be missed. Now in it’s 9th year with over 15 stalls selling superior wares, mostly handmade, it is now an annual institution.

This was a great fair today and I enjoyed meeting members and guests and even managed to persuade them to buy a few Xmas presents!
This was a great success making over £5,000 for a wildlife garden to be enjoyed by the children at the Cornwall Children’s Hospice. All thanks to Ian Griffiths for his inspiration and hard work. My cushion and my sister’s jug both sold for great prices!
This auction of original artwork is taking place at the Merchants House Hotel in Falmouth on Sunday 3rd November in aid of Cornwall Childrens’ Hospice. Advance bids are being taken already – contact Ian Griffiths. One of the lots is a cushion of mine made from an RSPB scarf featuring kingfishers. Candida Spencer, my sister, has an individually handmade ceramic bird jug in the auction too.
