Vintage items grace niche shop

FROM the vintage decor to the sweet rose aroma that greets you at the front door, everything about Victoria Grace is an experience.

Antique ornaments, Crabtree and Evelyn products and chic linen, to name a few goodies, are hidden in every nook and cranny in the store, making it like a shopping adventure.

For owner, Becky Bergan, it's simply a reflection of her own personality.

"I have a serious love affair with everything vintage," she said. "We've got nighties, books, china, linen, baby toys, front door mats, artificial flowers - it's a great mix."

Becky said for a unique gift, Victoria Grace was the place to come to.

"We buy from little boutiques, not wholesalers," she said. "And we try to buy things that go through fair trade, which I think is very important."

Right now the mother-of-four said she was obsessed with buying vintage English and French embroidery and using it to design tea cosies, tablecloths and tea towels.

"My daughter told me to stop buying them," Becky laughed. "But to me it's a way of preserving old crafts that are no longer available." She said they would soon be available to join the many other original items in her store.
