  1. Hello everyone. Some huge news here at Queen of Threads. As I'm sure many of you will have already seen over on Facebook , we've made the decision to say goodbye to the High Street and close our shop after five great years. In the last year or so we've noticed a huge shift in our sales with over 70% of them now being made online. We've also taken on another business Diamond School of Performing Arts and so with our lease approaching its conclusion at the end of November it was time to bid farewell to 31 High Street.

     
    It's by no means the end for Queen of Threads. We have already secured an office space to continue our online business from and you'll be seeing a huge increase in stock over at our website . We've also seen a huge increase in sales from Depop ( if you've not yet checked out this app, please do - it's awesome!) and so a lot of time will also be dedicated to our presence there.
     
    I'm naturally sad to be leaving my shop - I've put a lot of heart and soul into it over the last five years, but it's the right thing to do and I'm really excited about the future. I hope you'll continue to shop with us online - here's to the future

  2. Morning everyone! I know Mondays are not probably up there at the top of most people's favourite lists, but I love them. Our weekends are an absolute blur of business - a lot of our new stock arrives on a Friday evening and so Saturday and Sunday are spent getting everything priced, photographed and out on the rails for all our weekend trade. I love walking into my little boutique after the weekend and seeing all the gorgeous new items out on the rails ready for the week ahead. And hopefully my first hour at work will be spent collecting all our online orders and reserves and putting them by for post or collection. The website went crazy last night with orders so I will definitely be busy with that later.


    Over 100 new items arrived with us this weekend - the usual fab mixture of vintage, high street, designer and homewares. I'm in love with this Fortnum and Mason hamper which is perfect for home decor ( they make great storage baskets ) or for a posh picnic



                                                  Fortnum and Mason Picnic Hamper - £25


    And how cute is this? Its a lunch bag from Paperchase - this would be so cute to take to work or school. I absolutely love the woodland animal design. Its brand new and is an absolute steal at just £8

    I was uber excited when this Tara Starlet dress came in as I really love 1940s fashion. This navy tea dress is great for day or night. I really like the detailed collar and flare of the skirt. Its in great condition and at only £30 is a real bargain

    We've have lots of Cath Kidston in recently, which is great as it is hugely popular with you guys! This little beaut came to us yesterday - its so cute and I would use it as a pencil case but it would serve equally well as a make up or toiletries bag. Its only £6 and is in great condition

    There is so much more in store and online at www.queenofthreads.co.uk so do head in to the shop or over to the website for a browse. I'd better get out of my pyjamas and into work! Have a great Monday everyone and I'll be back with you again soon
