Stall Focus #9 – Scarlet Goddess

22 May

As Swop n Shop draws ever-nearer, we catch up with Scarlett Goddess herself, Sue Farrell

Hi Sue. Could you sum up Scarlett Goddess in one sentence?
High quality vintage jewellery and accessories to suit all tastes, pockets and styles.

Nice. So what sort of things can we expect?
I sell all types of vintage jewellery, bags and accessories plus vintage inspired one-off pieces.

Will you be bringing anything special to Swop n Shop?
A step back in time to an age of glamour and elegance.

Sign me up! So how did Scarlett Goddess begin?
I have loved vintage jewellery ever since the days when I was a young girl and my Aunt let me delve into her jewellery box Рoften letting me choose a piece to keep.  I still have most of the pieces and still wear them today as the jewellery made then was made to last and it still looks stunning and timeless.

Finally, what made you want to take part in Swop n Shop?
I saw Swop n Shop advertised in my local Red Cross Charity Shop and thought what a wonderful idea it was and how I would love to be part of this very worthwhile event. I love to be creative and repair and re-model vintage jewellery giving it a new lease of life.


Should you wish to sample the earthly delights of Scarlett Goddess before Swop n Shop, you can find her at the marvelous Heanor Antiques Centre.
