Second Hand Rose has been established for over ten years. I had a physical shop in Worcester for 8 years until 2014, I then expanded into a large online store to serve customers worldwide.

Over the years I’ve sold at prestigious vintage events up and down the UK, supplied costumes to film and television, styled photoshoots, curated a large fashion exhibition and authored a book on vintage fashion.

Wearable Vintage Fashion was published in 2012 and features classic pieces from the 20th Century and tips for styling fun, affordable looks.

I curated A Celebration of Style 1920-1945 at Worcester Museum and Art Gallery in Summer 2014, displaying precious pieces from the Worcestershire County Archives. To see photos from the exhibition visit

I hand pick all the items for sale, focussing with online selling means I can also concentrate on the areas of vintage fashion I personally love! It also means I now have time to offer a sourcing service, so if you're looking for something in particular but can't see it here, just get in touch and I can see what I can do!
