Antique Treasure, Flea Markets and the start of my Vintage China Fascination

 

My name is Wanda Jean but you can call me Wanda. I am originally a Cornish girl but have lived in Bristol for the last 17 years. Somehow I have managed to scrape the pennies together and buy my own home which I share with my husband, our beautiful baby daughter and a big bear of a dog aka ‘the love suckers’.

I have always enjoyed collecting vintage, antique-type treasures and pretties (other people probably see this as clutter and tat) which I think is a trait I inherited from my nanny Pam. She was an antique dealer and would take me to the flea markets and car boots when I stayed with her in the summer holidays. To keep me out of trouble she would give me my own little stall, where I first learnt to become a wheeler-dealer and the art of bartering.

By the time I was 14 I had moved onto junk shops, auctions and charity shops where my early purchases included an art deco dressing table, veneered Edwardian wardrobe and a snakeskin bentwood chair. Three completely different eras and styles but I loved the eclecticness.

From the early days of flea markets and car boot sales, I have always been a magpie for China. When I first moved to Bristol one of my friend’s mums had a teapot collection which I secretly envied. As and when I found a worthy teapot I started to grow my own collection.

To my husband’s dismay, it wasn’t long before this evolved into an entire vintage china collection including teapots, jugs cups, saucers and cutlery.

I believe I have a truly beautiful collection, and the idea of sharing this with others fills me with pride.

Please have a look through my galleries to see the beautiful collection for yourself.
