About Us

Carnation Collectables' 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 and earrings made by Stacey Dixon of The Sweet Shop in Queensland. 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 no longer using stockists, the work of Lauren and Phoebe from Deer Arrow was fantastic, thank you ladies!

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/carnationcollectables or Instagram @carnationcollectables which my lovely model Miss Anita Simpson looks after for me. My clothing is shortly to have its own website www.carnationretro.com which is literally ready to go pending new photos from the photoshoot this weekend. In the meantime it is still on Etsy/carnationretro. In 2019 we are attending larger shows, including some further afield, where I hope to meet many of you.
