About

THE VINTAGE LETTER LADY

I have a love of all things old and vintage. I love the fact they have a history to them, a story, a different life to how we use them now. Because of this love The Vintage Letter Lady was born. 

I am a full time mummy to 3 amazing boys. When I am not building Lego monsters with my 3 year old twins or at tumble tots with my toddler I am The Vintage Letter Lady. I have a love of all things old and vintage. I love the fact they have a history to them, a story, a different life to how we use them now. Because of this love The Vintage Letter Lady was born. 

I up-cycle vintage board games, to bring back fond childhood memories and use vintage playing cards to create  simple name/word frames. My main love is Scrabble, the possibilities using words or phrases are endless. I use original scrabble board games and tiles to spell out your loved ones names in a frame, or fun phrases or words, even using them for brooches, rings or cuff links. I also up-cycling incomplete Monopoly and Cluedo games into gorgeous box frames, which bring back fond childhood memories, as I’ve said but without the arguments! I have recently started to up-cycle Subutteo teams into box frames, which are starting to become very popular.

I feel that my unique selling point the board games that I use are, as much as possible, incomplete having lost their original use, whether they have lost pieces or their board is ripped or torn. I then use all the lovely parts to make gorgeous frames for people’s homes, as I said that, bring back fond childhood memories.

As everything is made by hand in our garden studio in Winchmore Hill I offer a made to order service for my scrabble frames which are very popular.
