What's New

Welcome to 'What's New' - a quick look at what's happening at Carnation Retro

We're nearly ready to pack the car and caravan for Retrofestival in Newbury! Orders all finished. Hurrah    

As already mentioned, I have decided to go forward with fewer clothing lines based on men's shirts and waistcoats, swing and circle skirts, gypsy tops and two 1940s dresses and three dresses from 1950s and 1960s. It's great fun choosing fabrics but I always a worry that I have chosen my personal preferences rather than those with wide appeal. My new line of Men's S-crap shirts are proving very popular! Each shirt is numbered and there will never be two the same. I have just made number 21.



We still have a good stock of the Fabulous Flowers by Oh So Flamingo, £18 each.


 I only have a few of the Erstwilder Art Deco pieces. A couple of you have ordered the ship and Egyptian Revival brooch, so they'll be on their way with.....????



And now the REALLY EXCITING NEWS I am delighted to say that my first order from the fabulous Revere Folie is on its way.  I am taking the stock to Newbury Retrofestival and will have the pieces on show on Friday, but won't start selling until 11am Saturday. Although there's a very good selection in most cases there are only 1 or 2 of each piece. I will load them onto my website so that when I get back from Newbury they will go live on Sunday evening. I will advise on Facebook and Instagram the actual timing. The website has been upgraded to allow a different postage rate for Revere Folie items as there is no box involved, so the lovelies can go at large letter rate, £1.95 for UK up to 250g and £4.50 for Europe and international. The free shipping for orders over £60 still applies.   


I am really very excited to bring these pieces of joy to you all the way from sunny Queensland. 

Best wishes
