About Us

Carnation Retro website is the culmination of years of the pent up love of everything crafty and vintage and wanting my own shop.

I really enjoy meeting fellow vintage and craft lovers at fairs and markets, sharing memories of times when childhood really was a childhood. 

After growing up and getting married in Melbourne I now live in Oxfordshire UK. I'm a regular visitor to Melbourne, where my family still live, hence my interest in and love of Erstwilder products. Erstwilder's original office in Box Hill was literally just around the corner from my sister's house, small world!  I am delighted to be the first UK stockist of Daisy Jean products from Sydney. I am very excited to be working with Rachel from Oh So Flamingo, I love her designs which are totally handmade down the road in Wiltshire.   

Sadly all events for 2020 have been cancelled BUT there is the [ossibility of one going ahead in mid August in Basingstokr, everything is crossed in hope! Check out the 'Where to find us' page to find our next 'port of call'. Or if you aren't in the area do drop me an email, you can also find me on facebook.com/carnationretro or Instagram @carnation_retro which my lovely model Miss Anita Simpson looks after for me. As I make all the clothing myself, if you don't see your size or if you'd like a different fabric for an item, just drop me a line and I will happily do my best for you!  

Looking forward to meeting you soon! 

Anne (hubby Mike too) heart
