Alexandra Vintage

Alexandra Vintage website, Jun 2015Alexandra Vintage is a vintage network taking pride in its group of passionate vintage Buyers. Our Buyers handpick pieces of vintage fashion from across the globe, offering affordable collections of quality vintage clothing & accessories for women.

We are very passionate about vintage. Our Buyers add at least 10 new items to our online shop every week. Out sourcing all the time, we always have a few treats up our sleeves that excite us and we hope excite you!

Although predominantly an online business, Alexandra Vintage is involved on a local level working closely with jelly and getting involved in art initiatives across Reading Town Centre, as well as popping up the Alexandra Vintage Studio at the jelly studios at the much loved and historic Jacksons Corner Department Store, Reading.

Alexandra Vintage offers free personal styling at their Reading Studio – as seen in Channel 4’s THIS OLD THING with Dawn O’Porter – and have regular pitches at Clerkenwell Vintage Fashion Fair and Judy’s Affordable, plus other events across the South East.

We look forward to welcoming ‘Step into Vintage’ – a new workshop to this year’s festival, hosted by Alexandra Vintage & vintage accessories specialist All Vintaged Up. The workshop will provide an informative and enjoyable evening for ladies interested in vintage fashion and takes place on Friday 3rd July, 6:30 – 8:30pm.

Cathy Newell Price

Wind TurbineJewellery designs inspired by the British countryside and gardens.

One off special pieces often tell a story, a walk by the coast, the changing of the seasons, the dragonfly and the lily-pond, a common theme is the natural world.   Birds, flowers and insects all feature,  this is not surprising as Cathy’s degree was in Plant Science.  Elements of these special pieces are developed into the ranges of everyday jewellery.

The jewellery is characterised by its decorative nature with surface texture and tiny details.  It is made from precious metals with vitreous enamel. Processes include direct and lost wax casting, hand piercing and fabrication.Cathy works from her studio in old farm buildings in Shinfield just outside Reading.
