Vanroe's Jane Johnston on collecting vintage powder compacts and vintage beauty. You can find Jane's compacts and new designs by Stratton at www.vanroe.co.uk
Last week I received a wonderful email from the only remaining British compact company, Stratton. I’d asked for further information to share with customers, as I’m about to go live with my first range of new powder compacts (all Stratton of course!). In reply, Stratton’s lovely sales chap Andrew sent an email full of vintage ads. Practically fell off my seat.
The ads are too perfect to wait to my launch to share… so here they are in all their vintage glory! My favourite? “Stratton Make Men Almost Worthwhile” – 1970
