Vintage Deli's Brand New Look

Over the last week we have been shaking things up here in Burnham Market and giving our lovely Vintage Deli Boutique a glamorous new look. It has been a lot of hard work, but we are so happy with the final outcome we can't stop smiling! 

In the back room we have retained the cosy, quirkiness of Vintage Deli and filled it with warm winter jumpers and accessories. The biggest transformation can be seen in the main room, with new rails, displays and a fresh coat of paint it couldn't look more different. 

Another change that we are very excited to announce is the long awaited addition of a Menswear section. No more moaning from those reluctant boyfriends and husbands, now they can shop too. With a stunning range of coats, jumpers and scarves and much more, they will be more than happy to browse. 

If you are looking for an excuse to come and see the changes and do a bit of shopping then why not pop down on Friday 2nd December for a night of 'Masterpieces, Mulled Wine and Mince Pies'. A wide selection of independent boutiques in Burnham Market will be opening late until 7pm to help you get your christmas shopping done. 

What better way to enjoy the Christmas lights than with a glass of mulled wine, some mince pies and some shopping?

A Vintage Halloween

Happy Halloween to all of you vintage lovers out there!

What has everyone got planned for this evening then? Hopefully you all have your pumpkins carved, your sweets stocked up and your creepy decorations at the ready for those spooky trick or treaters that will be appearing at your doors this evening.

Androgynous Beauty

This is boyfriend chic at its best! 

We love the androgynous trend this season. Boyfriend blazers, tuxedos, wide leg trousers matched with crisp white shirts, we just can't get enough of it all! And apparently neither could Katy Perry on last night's XFactor!

We adore how she's glammed this boyish trend up with her pink, vintage inspired hairstyle and stunning pink lipstick combined with her striking dark eyes. She has even thrown in a glitter ball microphone! She couldn't be further from looking masculine while keeping perfectly with the current androgynous trend!

Here at Vintage Deli we have plenty of Vintage beauties that you could choose from to keep up to date with this amazing trend. Like this gorgeous Vintage Tux Suit and Tux Blazer!

Take a look at our website or come and browse our Burnham Market Boutique to see what androgynous gems you might find amongst our collection of blazers, shirts, ties, bow-ties, bowler hats and more!

All our love

Keeping Cosy At Vintage Deli

So Autumn is now officially upon us and after those glorious few days at the beginning of October we're really feeling the chill. But we're not complaining just yet. Here at Vintage Deli we love the season changes because it can only mean one thing... a whole new wardrobe! We've been finding out our fur coats and our wooly jumpers with much joy. Our Boutique is currently adorned with lots of cosy hats, scarves, gloves and anything snuggly that we think you might enjoy. Our jumper box is overflowing with the chunkiest knits you could image and with a very chilly November on the horizon, we think they're going to be much appreciated. Take a look at our Winter Holidays section of the Vintage Deli Website to see what you can find to keep you warm this winter. Here are just a few of our favourites right now!

Stunning 60s Faux Mink Fur Coat

Absolutely Amazing Arctic Fox Faux Fur Coat

Classic 60s Camel Coat

80s Jean Laurent Jacket

We're working on lots of different projects right now too, that will all be revealed in due course, so keep your eyes peeled for anything new and exciting that we might be doing. 

Stay warm and we hope to see you in our Burnham Market Boutique soon!

All our love

Mixing It Up For A/W 11

The Team at Vintage Deli are sad to see the end of summer drawing ever closer. We feel we were slightly cheated out of the scorcher we hoped for (But there may still be time!). We've had lots of rain, lots of wind but, as cheesy as it sounds, loads of fun! And even though we'll miss the festivals, electric fashion, BBQs and beach fun, we are definitely excited about the prospect of Autumn/Winter!

Autumn in my opinion, is the best time of year. Clear skies and crisp weather really do it for me and the autumnal colours are just gorgeous!! Expect to see lots of country inspired fashion this coming season. Think tweeds, leathers, feathers and wools in an array of natural browns, greens and beiges. 

Mix and match pieces too! 
We want to see sequins with fur, with polka dots, with leather, with tartan, with chunky knits! It's all about imagination and having the confidence to try out new looks and styles. A/W 11 is looking pretty fun to us right now! 

Here is one of our styling ideas to get your juices flowing. Add some thick woolen tights and leather boots for a sophisticated, on trend style!
Light Mink Crop With Red Polka Dot
Day Dress And Feather Embellished Hat

Trends are also going to be looking towards 60s Chic and 40s Elegance for A/W 11 so make sure you come to our Burnham Market Boutique or visit our online boutique to guarantee yourself those original vintage beauties that will keep you on trend and stylish throughout the coming season. 

Also, check out Vintageshops online to find the best Vintage stores around! Simple!

All our love

Are You Ready For This Jelly?

It's August! Hurray! 

We are finally experiencing some more of that scorching weather that the summer began with and we are loving it! Hopefully all of you are too. The sun is meant to be here to stay all week and let's hope it lasts the weekend, because we all know what's on the horizon don't we?! Jelly Festival of course! 

We just can't wait. Vintage Deli will have a stall at the festival, with loads of gorgeous garments and bits and pieces for you to buy. We will also have our brand new vest tops for sale there! We have collaborated with local graphics/T-shirt designer Botscene to design and produce some really cool and quirky Tees that we absolutely love and we hope you will too. We have taken inspiration from both sides to cook up some brilliant designs that depict certain aspects from both companies in a really fun and original way. We are so proud of them. It has been a long process of drawing up designs and modifying them again and again until we found something that we were all completely happy with and we are so glad it has actually come together so that we can see the final product. But we are more excited to see what you guys all think of them! We will have pictures on here soon for you to see and leave some feedback on. It would be great to know all of your thoughts.

We are currently selling Jelly Festival tickets in our Vintage Deli Boutique so make sure you come in and get yours! They are for this Friday 5th and Saturday 6th August. Teen tickets are for those of you who are 13- 17 and cost £25 for the weekend and Adult tickets are £40 for the weekend. If you wish to pay by card there will be a £1 booking fee per transaction.

We cannot wait to see you there!!
All our love

What A Rental Success!

Our three amazing rental 50s hooped dresses.
They are beautiful!
Saturday, as you all should know by now after copious amounts of us tweeting/blogging/facebooking, was the launch of our stunning new rental range. We brightened up the shop with a lick of paint and a few quirky phoroframes, re-arranged everything to fit in all of our beautiful rental gowns and we even got involved with some baking! We had homemade cupcakes, scones, flapjacks and some yummy bubbly that we had to try and resist the temptation of too much. We managed to get our boutique looking spectacular, if we do say so ourselves, and received some very flattering comments about how great the place was looking. (We were very chuffed!

Vintage Deli's Rental Collection

All in all we had a great turn out and the entire day and night was a complete success! Yay! It was great to see so many people taking an interest in our new collections and supporting us so much! The Team had so much fun getting our hair styled in some stunning vintage ways by Fredz Hairdressers and getting all glammed up in our vintage frocks. It was fantastic to know that all our hard work and planning was worth while when all of our guests showed up.

We had our favourite new toy on hand to document the night too; our new polaroid camera! We had great fun taking pictures of each other and all of our guests. The camera will also be on hand at Jelly Fest where we will be doing a little competition for you all, but we'll tell you about that one later!

So after a fantastic, fun filled evening, we would like to thank everyone who attended our event and supported our new range, it means the world to know we have so many people out there who are enjoying what we do at the moment and there is still so much more to come this summer! Watch out!!

All our love
A very happy and thankful

One Day To Go!!

It's finally here! Tomorrow is the day we've been working towards for the past couple of months and after much planning, organising, selecting and tweaking we think we are all ready for the launch of our rental range!! How blummin exciting! We've even tried our hands at a bit of DIY in the shape of re-painting the shop and adding little bits like our quirky frames to spruce it up. And, if we do say so ourselves, its looking pretty fab! What do you think?

In true vintage style, tomorrow the Vintage Deli team will be donning some gorgeous vintage outfits and having our hair styled to create that perfect vintage atmosphere. (We definitely hope you will all be joining in with the fun by doing the same. Fredz Hairdressers next door will be on hand and more than happy to help create your perfect vintage look! Pop in and see what they can fix up with your barnet!)

Not only are we just launching our rental selection, but we will be introducing you to an exclusive preview of our very exciting re-worked range. All modified and re-worked by our newest intern Sammy

Finally, here is our last sneak peak at another one of our rental gowns. If you want to see more, then you'd better get yourself down to the launch tomorrow! We'd be delighted to see you all!!

Loving The Stunning Sixties Scene

What a glorious day it is today in sunny Burnham Market! The perfect start to the weekend. 

And is there a better way to ease yourself into it than by relaxing in the garden, at the park or beach with a nice magazine and a cold beverage? We think not! Even though, sadly we can't join you just yet, we have been browsing the glossies and keeping up to date with all the current trends and guess what? Sixties are back on the scene! Where the summer is all about the stunning seventies, we are moving back a decade into the sassy sixties for autumn/winter 11/12. How do we know this? Well we can't go against what fashion bible Vogue say now can we? 

Take your inspiration from fashion icons like Twiggy, Mary Quant and Julie Christie to get that perfect sixties look and be ahead of the game for next season. Come into our Burnham Market Boutique and have a shop around to see what sixties specialities we have. Or if you can't make the trip, then get yourself online to browse our website! We promise there will be a lovely selection of cute shifts, graphic-prints, and gorgeous footwear for you to choose from.

Below you can see the Sixties Jean Paul Gaultier dress on the catwalk against Vintage Deli's 60s style Maude Jackson printed shift.

We think that both of these dresses are gorgeous, but why fantasise about a catwalk dream dress when you can buy it right here!! 

To all of you who have been following our blog lately, we'd like to give you a massive thank you, it's so exciting to know that we have vintage lovers from all over the world keeping an eye on what we do! So to follow on from our last blog, we would like to give you another sneaky peak at another one of our beautiful rental dresses....
