Fine and Dandy: vintage heaven in Marazion, Cornwall


Update Oct 2015

Please note that the Fine & Dandy bricks and mortar shop is now closed. Please follow Shevie's Instagram account for her online shop details.


I was lucky enough to visit the utterly fabulous Fine and Dandy shop in Marazion, Cornwall, for a second time earlier this month (see my post from last year for photos from my first visit).

The shop is run by the super lovely Shevie, who has such an amazing eye for finding, curating and displaying the most gorgeous selection of vintage items from the 30s to the 60s. There are lots of vintage toys and pretty china and so much pastel loveliness that it's all a bit much to take in! Fine and Dandy has just turned 4, so I'm sending my best happy birthday wishes and hoping it continues to grow and blossom.

If you are ever down in Cornwall, you must pop in and pay a visit - the shop is just packed full of vintage loveliness and the displays are a work of art in themselves. For those who can't make it in person, Shevie has also now set-up an Etsy shop and an eBay shop, so everyone can enjoy a little slice of Fine & Dandy, wherever they are. Shevie also has the loveliest Instagram photostream :)

My last visit was at Easter time as well - the shop was looking so pretty, decked out in easter finery. The displays are always changing - take a look at Shevie's Flickr set for more photos of Fine and Dandy over the years.

I took a couple of Blythes with me to visit Shevie and they looked right at home. I'm sorry there aren't more photos - I was too busy having such a lovely time chatting to Shevie!

Whilst you're down in Marazion, there's lots to see and do - St. Michael's Mount is a must - and I can recommend the lovely Delicious deli/cafe - beautiful, tasty fresh food and lovely tea served in vintage china (some of it from Shevie's shop!).

There are lots of lovely beaches and coves nearby too. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful and secluded Prussia Cove, and the lovely Praa Sands. We wandered up and down the beach at Praa Sands watching the waves crash and roll, with the sun on our face - magical - and what Cornwall is all about for me.

I've got lots more to share about my Cornwall adventures - so expect more posts and pictures soon :)

Did you know the O3 Gallery in Oxford has a lovely shop?

And it sells some of my greeting cards (above and below). Plus a whole bunch of lovely other things, including cards, prints, artwork, jewellery and gifts made by local and national artists.

The shop nestles neatly on the top level of the circular gallery, whilst the main space is used for exhibitions. You can find the O3 Gallery in the Oxford Castle.

I just love the bunny necklace below and the fabulous brooches by Sketch Inc.

I also adore these stunning rings by Monvatoo - I'll take the owl and the rabbit please ;)

Here are a few more of my card designs available at the O3 Gallery:

Whilst these particular card designs can only be found at the O3 Gallery, you can also buy my cards in packs from my Etsy shop and individually from my Red Bubble shop, along with a range of other prints. Wishing you all a most fabulous sunny summer weekend - get out and enjoy that sunshine!
