Fedora Fatale

vintage 40s green hat
What can I say about this hat? It’s vintage 1940s, it’s utterly gorgeous and it makes me feel like a film noir femme fatale when I wear it.

Chic Chairs

50s chair
I am obsessed with the neat, chic little chairs from the middle of the last century. Today we’re used to slouching around, half asleep, in big squashy sofas today that take up half the living room. These little chairs bring you back to a time when people sat up straight and had proper conversations with each other. It seems much more refined.

We have a selection of vintage mid-century chairs in stock that have been (like the chairs pictured here) refurbished and restored to a high standard.

I’ve not updated the blog in ages, but things have been very busy. I’ve just completed a couple of show houses at Hartley Hall in Greenisland. This photo comes from one of the show house and shows how you can mix vintage and contemporary styles to create a very relaxed modern look.

Jacob Street has also moved premises to beside Bedeck on the Lisburn Road in Belfast. Come in and visit us there to see a great mix of modern and vintage clothing, homewares and jewellery.

Coral and Gold

coral and gold vintage jewellery

OK, so our summer looks like it’s over now, but that shouldn’t stop us dressing like it’s summer, should it? To me, there’s nothing more summery than coral and gold – it’s the sartorial equivalent to the smell of suntan lotion.

These gorgeous vintage brooches and bracelets look really good together and are a great way to brighten up your day. Even if it’s blowing a gale and pouring outside.
