About me

Location Liverpool, United Kingdom
Introduction Hello, my name is Nikki. I devote my life to the acquisition of beautiful vintage things, much to the annoyance of my partner, who will always prefer being able to actually move about one's abode to having thousands of gorgeous things to look at :). I live with said partner - otherwise known as A, our odd little cats Juno and Luna and aforementioned stuff. I have high hopes of opening a shop when I grow up.
Interests Spending time with friends family and pets, vintage clothing and accessories, vintage ceramics, textiles and homeware, jewellery, reading, art, craft, visiting galleries, museums and exhibitions, knitting, making random stuff, dressing up and playing pretend, shiny things, old photographs, collecting doorknobs, thinking, blurring my boundaries of real life and make-believe, treasure-hunting, charity shopping, collecting collections, writing, a little film, tv and music and baking the occasional sweet thing...
