A LITTLE BIT ABOUT US
Spero Vintage started out as an online business on Etsy (SperoCollection). The Etsy shop continues as usual, but I decided that the time was right to launch an individual shop focusing on antique and vintage pieces.
I have extensive experience as an antiques and vintage dealer. My love of collecting began in childhood, inspired by the wonderful 'dressing up box' of rather glamorous cast-off clothing and accessories given to me by my grandmother.
I ran a shop selling antique furniture, linens, lace and small collectables within a large antiques market during the 1990s and later I ran my own stall within a vintage market selling clothing and jewellery.
I began making my own jewellery a few years ago, mainly because I couldn't find what I wanted in the shops. My Etsy shop grew out of my love of collecting old and interesting things, plus making jewellery. I still enjoy making jewellery and like to use good quality materials such as gemstones, solid bronze, silver, unusual beads, vintage components and found objects. I am always happy to discuss commissions for custom pieces.
The thrill of finding a fabulous vintage piece has never left me and seeking out treasures to offer in my shop never feels like work. I hope you will enjoy browsing my items. I aim to offer a service that is friendly, individual and personal, just as you would find in a small independent boutique. If you have any questions, please get in touch and I'll be happy to help.
