Every Friday morning based at a large communal table with coffee and croissants in the lively campus cafe, start-up businesses can meet with a Googler for half an hour of one-to-one mentoring. The sessions are called Office Hours, anyone can attend and they are completely free. Each week there is a specific theme but the mentors are always happy to let the conversation go where it needs to go as I happily discovered. So far I have attended the Google Adwords and Social Media sessions. Continue reading »
It has crossed my mind if I continue to collect fun vintage mugs at the rate I’ve been recently then this time next year I could appear on BBC 2’s Collectaholics as I’d rather like to meet Mel and Mark. My current abode, however, is a teeny tiny one bedroom flat in East London with minimal cupboard space so I shall continue to thrift and sell! Today I have added 9 new styles and shuffled them all into their own collection page: Time for Tea. I did have more but they were swiped by some of my cutie pie regulars on Instagram. If you’d like to get your hands on the swag before it hits the online shop then I definitely recommend adding me on Instagram, Twitter & Facebook – I apologise in advance for the all the cat chat.

I absolutely love a bit of colourful retro glassware and have fun coming up with new ways to use these vintage items. I would most certainly use the Snoopy glass mug as a pen pot in my studio and the slogan would tickle me even though I actually enjoy my boyfriend singing in the shower every morning. I would sit a trio of vintage advertising milk bottles on the kitchen shelf and distribute a bunch of wildflowers amongst them. Although the pure orange juice version would be perfect for pouring your fresh orange juice at the breakfast table. Continue reading »
I like to think of Thrift-ola as a curated flea market which removes the hassle and the stress out of hunting down those special super cute vintage finds. So just like you would at a flea market, once a month in my shop you can have a go at haggling… Oh yeah!
To make it even more easy peasy you can haggle with me in any one of these 5 places… leave a comment below or e-mail me at email@example.com or if you follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook you’ll have seen the posts and can make me your offers over there.
How it works:
1. Choose your method of communication from the list above and contact me with the product name & the price you’d like to pay.
2. If I accept the offer, I’ll let you know and then change the price of the product to what you’d like to pay for the rest of the day – although you’ll have to quickly snap it up before someone else does.
3. If I don’t accept your offer, I’ll send you a counter offer and the haggle begins.
March’s Make Me An Offer Monday will end at midnight 31st March.
Hands up who loves going for a dig around in their parent’s loft whenever they visit home? Sadly my parents no longer live in my childhood home and when they split up didn’t keep much at all. Sometimes I think that’s the reason I can easily part with my thrifty finds, I don’t tend to have the attachment gene to objects or stuff, which is a good thing as my shop would always be empty and my flat fit to burst!
