    Sharing secrets, especially trade ones, is a trait I most admire in fellow shopkeepers. It gives everyone a feeling of solidarity and trust. Two traits that help high streets all survive. Perhaps it’s the sharing of her secrets that has made Michelle Mason, her shop @masonandpainter in the wonderful Columbia Road, London, and her new book ‘Love Vintage’ so appealing. I have been lucky enough to visit Michelle’s shop and it didn’t disappoint. Michelle is a master of the ‘mise en scene’; the setting of the stage and her shop oozes style and creativity. Not only do I look up to her ability to create a beautiful still life from her stock and finds but I deeply admire her openness that she captures beautifully in her book ‘Love Vintage’. It’s almost hard to believe that she has produced the coffee table book for Vintage lovers and combined it with a text book of advice, resources and encouragement to anyone who is passionate about setting up their own business or just hunting for beautiful additions to their own homes.
    Michelle offered me some of her books to sell here at Classics and as a fan, I jumped at the chance. The images are stunning.

    “This guide is a small but perfectly formed bible for lovers of vintage, packed with inspiring photos. Michelle Mason, herself a designer, stylist and vintage dealer, uses her experience to guide readers on their own journey into the world of time-worn treasures. It’s packed with tips and tricks on where to best to source decorative antiques, as well as how to build a collection. The second chapter takes a closer look at different specialities and what to look for. And for those eager to start selling at fairs, or set up a bricks-and-mortar shop, there’s a chance to go behind the counter of independent vintage stores, plus advice from Michelle on finding your own ‘vintage voice’.”
