Vintage specialist and dealer Lisa Savage is hoping to highlight the recent vintage and burlesque revival by launching a monthly E-zine “Teadresses and Tassels”.

Owner of online boutiques Just Vintage and Not Quite Vintage, Lisa (39), whose business is based at Backridge Farm, Waddington, decided to launch the specialist publication in response to both a hike in popularity of the specialist vintage clothing market and the burgeoning burlesque scene.

She said: “I have been an antique dealer for the past 12 years and four years ago, I felt like a change of direction as far as the business was concerned.

“I had always been particularly interested in vintage clothing and it has become very much mor mainstream in fashion over the last few years.

“There have been lots of articles and fashion pieces written about the vintage scene in the South of England and I wanted to find a way to showcase how the North is also embracing all things vintage and also include some detail on the burlesque scene as the two really sit hand in glove with each other.”

The new E-zine will be available to download from the 1st of every month, with a cover price of £2.50.

The first edition runs to 97 pages, packed full of interviews, fashion and vintage recipes and is available to download by visiting www.teadressesand tassels.co.uk.
