* Fresh new Frenchie's vintage dresses and skirts *

 As my dislike for high street prices grows each day, it makes my job even more satisfying being able to sell affordable fashion - affordable original fashion that you can treasure for a very long time. Instead of spending stupid amounts of your hard earned cash on very mainstream dresses/skirts/tops etc and feeding our throw away culture - Why not find original, creative, one-off and cherishable pieces that you will never see anyone else wearing, (it's all yours! and only yours!) and for a fraction of the price!

We're not greedy, we do our best to keep our prices down (and were not one of those who call it affordable, when actually, its still quite expensive) it may be affordable to someone who earns a lot of money, but it's not always possible to spoil yourself on a very tight budget. We know because we have been there! We respect and understand our customers. Theres no artificial smile, no-one to tell us to hit our targets or open more store cards! We do what we do because we want to, and because we know everyone deserves to feel good and own something special and not feel pressured into a sale.

We have re-worked and re-freshed some old 80's classics into lovely new skirts and dresses that are original and one-off. You won't find another skirt or dress like it anywhere on the high street - and in the extremely unlikely event that you do, Frenchie's can guarantee ours would be a fraction of the price.

The Vintage fair - and the birth of the Toastmobile!

New city, New fair:

Oh my! It has been a while since our last post!

We are finally booked into another Vintage fair! It has been a busy past few months and at last we are back! And with a huge pile of new stock :D happy days!

Not only are we at a new fair, we are also coming to a new city! The Vintage Fair is kindly taking us on to be a part of the Sheffield Vintage fair on the 25th of September 2010 ( I know, a whole month away, but at least you can all start saving up for more lovely vintage goodies! )

For more information and for directions, have a butchers hook at this:

Its going to be a brilliant day and we are so excited to show you all the new things that will make you look simply wonderful! and also looking forward to scoffing a few cupcakes! :D

In other news:

French Toast Vintage is getting its toasty teeth into a new Toastmobile! in other words, a new French Toast tour van will be coming soon to a city near you! With our range of stock slowly expanding and new equiptment being just too cumbersome, the poor little micra is just not up to the job any more! We are very excited to be introducing the new Toasmobile within the next few months!

isnt it annoying how you cant google our blog? our old blog address ( comes up on the first page but the new address ( does not. :( i do hope eventually it will be recognised. in the mean time while i wait for google to catch up, we will be designing our website that should be up and running in a few months hopefully so things will be able to be bought directly from there. (i might have already told you all that)

anyway. new pics should hopefully be up asap so you can see what we will be selling at the next affordable vintage fashion fair in leicester. :)
