Hot air balloons and baby girls inspire vintage fashion

HOT air balloons inspired the name, then a crowded cupboard inspired the business idea.

Monique Purton started Come Fly With Me Lola when her love of all things vintage meant she had no more room in her cupboard.

Unable to stop buying more clothing, she simply started selling it to make room.

"I'm obsessed with hot air balloons so Come Fly With Me sort of comes from there," Monique said.

"I tacked Lola on the end because one day I hope to have a daughter with that name.

Don't miss tomorrow's Fashion File for a sample of vintage fashion available in Rockhampton at My Sister's House.
