  • Dressed for success!

    To say we were a little excited when we were approached to dress a window in The Cornmill Shopping Centre in Darlington is maybe a bit of an understatement, we were to drag from the ceiling we were so elated! We have been offered an empty shop window to dress for 3 months with a selection of our up-cycled goodies. After lots of deliberation we decided to launch with a selection of our lovely arm candy, including a handbag by Karina, our cigar box bags along with a pair Jute Adores. We plan to change the window every couple of weeks but we're delighted with our first effort.


  • Newcastle Does Vintage

    We were at Newcastle Does Vintage recently held at the Theatre Royal, a stunning Art Deco venue, and a perfect showcase for this event. As we find at many of these events, we struggle to stay behind our own stalls, as our eyes are on stalks at all of the goodies! Our favourite trick is to get there and set up early so we can have a wander and ear mark a few purchases. This time Kizzy bought a gorgeous 1960's candy pink mac, with lovely big buttons. I was torn between a kitsch pineapple ice bucket and battered red leather satchel, I went with the bag, but really there is far too much choice! We had a fabulous fun day and would recommend visiting to anyone.


  • Newcastle Quayside Market

    Our first visit to the Quayside Sunday Morning Market was one of those days when you think its going to be really cold and you get there and it is positively tropical! So there we were dressed for the arctic having to shed some layers, it was in fact so sunny we both got a bit of a tan! The Quayside is a fabulous market full of hustle & bustle, the public are full of fun and up for a laugh as much as the traders, we met lots of hungover stags & hens as well as locals & tourists. Our best seller of the day didn't surprise us, it was our Newcastle Brown Ale Bottle Clocks!

  • Viva La Vinyl

    Our Viva La Vinyl range is proving so popular we have expanded the range to now include an adorable range of bags that we simply Jute Adore! These pop coloured bright totes are lovingly adorned with an up-cycled vinyl classic, and finished with vintage buttons and adornments. We chose to use carbon neutral jutes that are very sturdy with a good old reinforced gusset - as Kizzy likes to say with a cheeky smile! Its such a shame that these records were all heading for landfill as they were scratched, damaged and unplayable. We like to think we have given them a second life, we get so sentimental where vinyl is concerned. Remembering the days when we'd save our pocket money and head to Woolworths to buy a single, they are far to pretty to sit in landfill! So we hope that everyone Totes Adore's these bags as much as we do!
