Welcome

How lovely of you to drop by!  We're not long opened, but do take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about us. We hope you enjoy our site and take a moment to drop us a line.

Effie and Bunts is mainly an on-line ETSY shop, but I do set up stall about five times a year at a few Vintage Fairs in Scotland and in Wiltshire.

About Us

For the love of hens

Effie and Bunts is named after two of the first hens I gave a home to. They came from a battery farm and just embraced their new lives. Any money I make is by and large spent on mealie worms for the hens that came after them, and who continue to rule the roost. I live in a shed at the bottom of the garden.

What's on my worktable today

I'll let you into a secret. The older I get, the more I am drawn to vintage toys and I've recently taken to sourcing dolls bed, having come across quite a few in France and Belgium. This is one I just finished. It's a 1930's bedroom suite, which perfectly fits a 9cm Maileg rabbit (or mouse). The bed now has a new traditional French ticking mattress; two flat sheets (one embroidered); two pillows with separate pillow cases (embroidered); a scatter cushion and separate cover; an embroidered  blanket and a vintage quilt. If I can bear to part with it, it will be for sale at The Vintage Bazaar in Devizes in March.

Ethical Shopping

All the items in the shop are vintage in origin and are sourced by me on my travels as I rummage through the UK, France, Belgium and anywhere else I find myself. I am passionate about times gone by and love the thought of reusing pre-loved items from the past. They bring with them a history and a promise of untold stories. I buy what I like and would happily have in my house if I had any room left.  Any items I make are also fashioned from vintage linens, cottons and quilts. Environmentally, buying vintage goods makes sense too, it is saving water, fuel and materials needed to produce new items. Packaging, where possible  is also recycled and I  would love it if you reused it once you unwrapped your package.
