Suzy Buckle, owner of Divinely Vintage pre-loved curtains Suzy Buckle in her showroom for #pre-loved curtains in St Martins Antique Centre in Stamford

Hello, my name is Suzy Buckle and I set up my own business back in 1994 not long after the birth of our son Jonathan through reading an article in one of the weekend magazines. I started by selling second hand designer curtains and soft furnishings from a shop called Curtain Connection on London Road in St Albans. We closed the shop in 2002 and changed our focus to selling through other shops, like the Ampthill Antiques Emporium in Ampthill in Bedfordshire, St Martins Antiques in Stamford and now from our own Barn Showroom just outside St Albans and online.

I began buying vintage clothes and accessories back in 2007 and this now has become an additional focus of my business alongside the curtains. I love and wear a lot of vintage dresses, tops and skirts, accessories and jewellery as does my daughter Jessica.

The only way I could do this, and keep the peace at home with my partner (now known to all those of you who follow our Facebook Page as Mr DV!) before the house became overflowing, was to start selling some of the many items I had found or bought over a long period of time and so the name of the business changed to Divinely Vintage. One of my personal highlights so far was being part of the Vintage Festival on Southbank in 2011, which was just so much fun! We are actually on the video but only for about a millisecond at about 1.08 minutes in!!!

You can keep up to date with all the goings on in the business by following us on Facebook and/or Twitter or, if you want to get in touch or ask a question, use the form on the Contact Us Page and thanks for visiting our site!
