MILEKI: DIVINE GEOMETRIC DESIGNS NOW IN GREEN BRICK

Mileki-crossedLines

We’re  delighted to announce Green Brick now stock Mileki jewellery. I was first introduced to Mileki from a friend wearing the Cross Lines necklace (worn by model above).  It’s incredibly stylish yet simplistic so I got in contact with Mileki’s designer Kristina Dabrisiute. I loved all of the collection and instantly began to make my own wishlist and gifts for Mother’s day! We ordered a divine selection of pendants from the latest collection…made in Rosewood, Pear & Walnut with sterling silver adjustable chains.

We’re now selling vintage clothing, accessories & new designers at the front of the FAIR shop. Find us at 21 Queens Road, Brighton Tuesday-Saturday. New pieces come in from eras 1950s to the 1980s every week! Please enquire if you’re looking for anything in particular: greenbrickbuytrade@gmail.com   @G_BrickVintage

All day, everyday vintage…see my favourites!

60s Vintage Thermos Tin Lunchbox

Throughout my childhood I remember seeing this box in a kitchen cupboard.  It would come out if I had a bump or graze because my Mum used it as our home First Aid Box! I was quite a clumsy kid, so the dreamy retro drawings certainly transformed my memories of accidents into a routine opportunity to ponder my future career…Actress? Model? Air Hostess? Nurse?  Perhaps it’s not the most progressive collection of jobs for the girls but I think it’s pretty special. Keeping up with family tradition it’s the First Aid Box in my home!

70s Interior Finds

There’s something so exciting about finding what you really need for your home at a good price, occasionally a thrill when it’s free.  My iron was given to me and it’s perfect as I steam Green Brick stock but occasionally only a flat iron will do! The lamp is from Lewes Flea Market cost £8 and the small draw table from Snoopers Paradise was £70.

Vintage Designer Jackets from Paris

One of the challenges of buying and selling vintage clothing and accessories is overwhelming temptation to keep what you find.  Whilst I magpie for our stock I do see amazing pieces, unsurprisingly, not all gems make it onto the shop floor! That said I’m very strict about what I keep.  Jackets are a safe bet for my ‘cost per wear rule’ three of my faves are Chloé (80s Karl Lagerfeld) Waterfall Cape Wool, Sonia Rykiel (80s) Black Collarless Cinch Waist Asymmetric Button and Paul & Joe (90s) Monochrome Houndstooth Check Wool.
