We catch up with Fairy Tale Fair regular Georgina of Dear Diary Vintage. Find out more about her ahead of meeting her at The Fairy Tale Fair Worthing on Sunday 3rd April…
Please introduce yourself and your brand….
Hello, my name is Georgina and my brand is Dear diary vintage. Dear diary vintage is about remembering and unashamedly celebrating that 12 year old girl (or boy!) that lives within us all. The same girl who used to start each page of her diary entry using her best handwriting and fountain pen with Dear diary…
Here at Dear diary vintage we are proud of having a ‘Peter Pan complex’, after all what’s so great about growing up?
How would you describe your style and your creations?
I work mainly with wood and vintage illustrations and my Dymo machine creating jewellery and reminiscing about bygone days. My work is loved by children, teenagers and adults who simply refuse to give into growing up! Join me in a fairy tale land where dinosaurs roam freely, cat ladies are celebrated and Alice in Wonderland and her magical chums are everywhere.
What do you enjoy most about your work?
For me it is meeting my customers. Hands down nothing else compares! I absolutely love seeing them wearing my creations and seeing their faces light up when they spot the perfect brooch from my stall for themselves or as a present for someone else.
What can we expect to find on your stall at The Fairy Tale Fair Easter Special on Sunday 3rd April at Worthing Charmandean? And are you looking forward to taking part?
I can’t wait to take part. Fairy Tale events for me are the highlight of my year. I will be selling some special lines I have been working on with Fairy Tale in mind. I will be selling many classic vintage style brooches that are guaranteed to jazz up any collar. Come and say hello and see my fun and magical creations.
Do you have a best seller?
It is still my Alice in Wonderland range it’s just timeless.
Do you have any plans or ambitions for the future?
To continue to sell at Fairy Tale Fairs there is such a wonderful and creative atmosphere truly unique to Fairy Tale.
Do you have a motto or inspirational quote?
Growing old is unavoidable, but never growing up is possible. I believe you can retain certain things from your childhood if you protect them – certain traits, certain places where you don’t let the world go. Martin Luther King, Jr.
