INTRODUCING LILY & VIOLET VINTAGE - Will advocates of quality & individuality equal award?

Lily & Violet Vintage is an elegant, inspiring ladies vintage boutique (open 10-5.30 Tues-Sat) offering amazing original vintage pieces. Every item has been hand-picked for it's style and quality; every piece is exquisite in its own right. We find out more from co-owners Lisa Higgins & Mary McNally


What inspired you to launch this as your business?
Who wouldn't jump at the chance to do something they love every day? Its a passion as well as a business.

What drew you to "vintage"?
A shared love of all things beautiful and timeless. Iconic shapes that so easily identify with a bygone era but work equally well with today's fashions. Plus, a need to stand out from the crowd and not be a sheep!!

Where do the majority of your customers come from?
The boutique is based in the small market town of Dursley on the edge of the Cotswolds. Most of our customers visit from around the Cotswolds and further afield.

What is the most popular era or types of goods of those you sell in your shop?
1950s dresses are always a hit!!

Do you also sell online?
We have an online presence and Pinterest pages and we give prices (incl. p&p) and the ability to purchase from afar. We find most online customers have visited the boutique and are confident in the level of quality and service we provide. We are reluctant to enable customers to 'add to basket' without receiving lots of photographs and a detailed condition report for the item; so via either our website or Pinterest, our customers will at the press of a button request further information and we will provide them with all the necessary details.

What has been the highlight for your business over the past year?
In the past year, Lily & Violet Vintage has been recognised by as being a unique vintage venture set in the Cotswolds and whilst this recognition is very welcome, the highlight for us is that it was purely down to our customers nominating us! So, this coupled with the level of repeat custom we enjoy is fantastic.

How would you like to see your business grow & the Vintage Industry develop over the coming year(s)?
We hope to grow our reputation and become a respected name in the vintage world, known for our passion, service and above all, our exquisite clothes. We would like to see 'vintage' become synonymous with 'quality' and dispel a widely held belief that it is 'overpriced' and 'poor quality'.

Anything else you'd like to add?
The Lily & Violet Vintage Boutique threw its door open for the first time in June 2014 and has since gone from strength to strength. We pride ourselves on offering Totally Unique, Totally Gorgeous items and an impeccable service. Our customer base is wide and we love it that our clothes appeal to women of taste irrespective of age. We hope that everyone who walks through our door or visits us online, finds inspiration and the confidence to be totally unique and totally gorgeous.
