A Big Thank You....

to the wonderful Marilyn at the Cranbrook Oxfam - who organised a Craft Week and invited me to exhibit at the store on Saturday.
It was such a lovely day - friendly people, fantastic quality stock in the store, great volunteers, lovely surroundings and the fabulous manager Marilyn who looked after me like a princess!

She has invited me back in October and i cannot wait to visit the lovely Cranbrook store again!

News Just In......

One Day Costume Sale
Saturday 6th August 2011  Charlton Assembly Rooms, The Village, Charlton, London SE7 8UD
Doors open 11am – 4pm

We are a theatre production company that has written, directed and produced many professional Pantomimes and Shows over the last 10 years. After much deliberation, we have taken the decision to clear out our stores and have a sale of all of our accumulated stock – a difficult decision for a costume junkie and hoarder like myself. But we would rather these costumes see the footlights again and are used rather than sitting in our store room!

We will be taking over the use of Charlton Assembly Rooms for the day and filling it with hundreds of lovely costumes – some are used and some have never been worn. Perfect for a collector, theatre groups, producer, fancy dress hire business or individuals wanting a stunning costume.

Costumes for sale will include many stunning Victorian gowns from Music Hall shows, Georgian Dresses from Opera productions (some never even worn). Plus a whole range of Tyrolean and Austrian costumes along with Guys and Dolls ‘Hot Box’ outfits, lots of individual, Dresses, Shirts and Skirts etc.

There are also Props, Shoes, Hats, Make Up and Wigs plus some interesting items collected from the last 10 years of Theatre and Film productions…..all at bargain prices.
We have a section packed with Theatrical Trims, Sequins, Fabric Bundles, Threads, Buttons - all perfect for Costume making or Crafts

To support our team who are walking this year’s ‘Shine Walk’ for Cancer Research UK, we will be having a Vintage Cafe and Book Sale of which the proceeds will be added to our fundraising efforts!

There is a free car park behind the Assembly Rooms plus on street parking around the area.
Charlton is 5 minutes from the Blackwall Tunnel and 15 minutes from the Dartford Crossing by car, the Assembly Rooms have bus stops yards away that are on 4 bus routes and it is only a 5 minute walk from mainline Charlton Overground station. It also only takes 10 minutes on a bus from North Greenwich Tube station (Jubilee Line).

Payment: Cash or Business Cheque (with ID) only.

Prices will go from 50p up to £75 for some of the more pristine, intricate Victorian or Georgian dresses. Offers will be considered!

Visit for some photos and further details. There will also be a basic stock list advertised on here as we set up.

If you are interested in coming along then please do get in contact via or 07957 284709 if you have any questions and we will give full details including a map and more detailed directions.

Otherwise just turn up from 11am and we look forward to seeing you there!
