Cori Lu Vintage is an online treasure trove of vintage loveliness. This gorgeous Etsy shop is packed full of an eclectic mix of vintage home wares and accessories all at very reasonable prices. Although based in the states like most Etsy they send to the UK.
I was delighted when Cori asked to be a sponsor on Vintage Frills, I had been reading her blog for a while and fallen in love with some of her treaures.
Like many vintage businesses Cori started selling vintage to support her love of collecting vintage. Like me Cori grew up surrounded by vintage as her Mum and Grammi both collected antiques and vintage items. They even once had an antique shop together before Cori was born, which I absolutely love as selling antiques runs in my family too. Her love of the past was also influenced by her Dad’s love of old movies.
Using her passion for all things vintage Cori handpicks beautiful items for her shop, her love of vintage jewellery really shines through with some stunning pieces in the shop.
“Sometimes it’s hard to part with them, but I love knowing that I’m helping someone perfect their outfit; especially for a special occasion.”
Her selection of little home accessories are absolutely gorgeous, they’re mostly little bits and bobs that would add that perfect little vintage twist to a room.
Whenever I speak to a fellow vintage lover I always ask them what their favourite vintage era is here’s Cori’s answer –
“Picking a favorite vintage era has always been a very hard question for me to answer. I love every era from the 1860s to the 1970s, but I guess if I had to pick one, it would be the 1940s. I think the WWII era is very fascinating from a historical stand-point. Also the clothing styles and shapes fit my personality and figure.”
My absolute favourite items in the shop are the handbags. There is an absolutely stunning range and I have spotted so many bags that I want! They’re perfect for accessorising a mid-century wardrobe and these are my favourites…
The shop currently has a sale on, so now would be a great time to grab yourself a vintage bargain.
