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
My new video on how to use and refill a vintage Stratton powder compact. I explain the differences between ‘convertible’ and loose powder compacts, show Stratton’s self-opening inner lid, and give some tips on using the different powder sifters. The pressed powder refill I mention is Max Factor Creme Puff. You can read more about this on my post on which compacts fit Max Factor Creme Puff.
If the video doesn’t play above, you can watch on Youtube here.
UPDATE: Unfortunately I do not now stock replacement Stratton sifters. I’ll update as soon as this changes!
