VanRoe vintage powder compacts in… The Telegraph!

VanRoe vintage powder compacts in The Telegraph

Here we are in The Telegraph mag!

Turns out that today VanRoe Compacts is in the Saturday Telegraph!  A lovely mention online, and a photo and blurb in the print version’s “Fashion & Beauty – Beauty Notebook” section.  Love, love, love Kate Shapland so couldn’t be happier.  And, and, only saw the thing as had picked up a free Telegraph with my my water at Victoria Station WH Smiths… Thought I’d drifted off into an egomanic-ing dream when I spotted my name flicking through the magazine on my train!  Obviously on the phone straight away to my Mum.  I’m in London without camera but will have a pic up shortly.  This year is proving to be rather wonderful.

“THE COMEBACK vintage powder compacts
These are having a renaissance thanks largely to the Mad Men TV series. VanRoe compacts, from the 1950s to the 70s, have been reconditioned by Jane Johnston to take modern powder. This one, by Stratton from the 1960s, is my pick. £26, .”
