About Starched & Crumpled
Our Service PledgeI respond to all orders within 24 hours. If I am away in France on a buying trip there may be a short delay in shipping your parcel.
About UsI am based in Scotland, UK, and source most of my items in France and Europe. I have been dealing in antique textiles, costume, haberdashery, quilts, printed fabric, linen, buttons, ribbons, lace, boudoir treasures and accessories for many years. I sell a wide range of mainly 19th century textiles.....everything from beautifully STARCHED antique, monogrammed damask napkins to gently CRUMPLED antique millinery flowers. I buy at French and European brocante markets and have built up a comprehensive list of regular suppliers. My passion is for beautiful antique textiles and quirky vintage items with a gently faded grandeur and the patina of age. I am used to shipping worldwide, and have a large number of regular buyers from all over the world.
I am registered as a business seller in UK.
My aim is to offer my customers a professional and friendly service, and to share my knowledge and love of antique textiles with you.
You can follow my buying trips to France and Europe on my Starched & Crumpled Facebook page.
