Jane Vanroe on collecting vintage powder compacts and compact mirrors. You can find Jane's designs at www.vanroe.com and on Amazon in the EU & USA
As many of you may have guessed from my seriously low stock at Vanroe, we’ve had a challenging summer. The company I have been working most closely with, Stratton, seem to be experiencing some difficulties and haven’t been able to deliver for some time. Then the lavish BBC production of “Parades End” featured a powder compact, and we sold out. Usually a fantastic problem to have, but without a restock left us rather stranded!
So we’re working hard behind the scenes to bring some beautiful new designs to Vanroe. These (fingers crossed) should be available in mid November. The hard part is replacement sifters and puffs, which I know many of you are patiently waiting for. I’m working directly with a manufacture on sourcing these and will let you know as soon as I have an update.
The William Morris designs I developed with Stratton have unfortunately not yet been released beyond the first few pieces. If you are one of my lovely customers who pre-ordered and received a William Morris textile compact, do think about keeping the box. They may well be collectors’ items!
Meanwhile, I’ll have some wonderful new Vicci pieces on the site over the next few weeks, including butterfly and bird engravings. I can’t wait to share the pictures.
