Hey there, vintage fans! I hope you are well and safe. When you last heard from me, I was prepping for our move across the pond. My mind was turing over questions such as "How will we rebuild our lives? Where will we live? How is it possible the movers could break over 100 items?" It was a matter of putting one foot in front of the other, and making each day a journey towards answering these basic questions.
As we made progress, I began to ask: "Where should PVG be based? In what format should PVG be? In what currency should I sell this midcentury teapot? On what platform? And how will I ship that teapot?"

And over the past few months, I've been asking: "Who even needs a midcentury tea set when Covid and riots are going on? What is the purpose of All This Stuff? Does PVG even matter any more?" These are tough questions, and I don't have an answer yet. Maybe you've been asking yourself similar questions.

But I do believe that vintage things bring us delight, hope and joy. So I’ll be posting vintage goodness that I hope also bring you delight, hope and joy.
At the moment, I'm taking small steps to rebuild PVG after our move, while discovering the pleasures of everyday life during these crazy times. I'm also thinking a lot about how much I miss you and Manchester. Stay safe everyone! Lots of love, Laura (aka Mrs PVG).

Our Home...

is a 1922 California Craftsman! We found a place that Mr PVG could walk to work yet we could still walk to downtown shops & cafes. We are so thankful that we got moved into permanent housing before Covid struck. I'll be posting bits about Central California on the feeds - its a beautiful area set in high hills.

The Coast...

is 20 minutes away! From busy beaches for surfing (at Pismo), boardwalks for strolling (Moonstone) or rugged wilderness (Montana D'Oro State Park) we've got a bunch of beaches to explore. We're a couple hours from Big Sur, too. As a girl from flat, midwest Indiana, being near the beach is a joy!


is a new hobby! So I fell in the first time I tried (even though my friend said they were really difficult to tip!) Ends up California water is cold; it's Florida water that's warm all the time. I love seeing the harbor seals and sea otters up close. I hope to walk the hills and morros too when I am not scouring for vintage goodness and curiosities.

California Carboots

garage sales and estate sales are among the many places I find stock. Quite a bit has changed since 2004 when I last lived in the States. Big fairs in the region are Speckled Hen, Ventura and of course, Pasadena's Rose Bowl.


is in our back garden. A 700 sq ft purple studio (plus garage) is stuffed with PVG stock. This is where I photograph, pack and prep items. I've also got stock at a small coastal antique centre in Cambria, CA.
