  1. 1. I can actually afford lovely vintage stuff (unlike lovely designer new stuff at £150 a metre)
    2. I love the patina, the fact that the items themselves reflect lives lived, and have stories to tell. Sometimes a bit of fading is softer and better than a crisp new fabric.
    3. The thrill of the chase – hunting down something you love at the right price and finally bagging it.
    4. The “vintage fabric community” – ie. the fact that there are nutters out there that love the same stuff as me and we can bang on about our obsession together!
    5. It’s all by definition limited edition. Once it’s gone, its gone, which makes every scrap precious.
