Helping the Cangianos. Please Share.


Dear Reader, early on Sunday morning when I was looking at Facebook I saw a post about a fellow blogger who had lost everything in a house fire on Thursday 13th October.  To my absolute horror I realised it was the home of Jessica Cangiano of Chronically Vintage.

Jessica and her husband Tony escaped the fire with their dog, Annie, but they could not find their cat, Stella.  All they had were the clothes they were wearing, their wallets and phones and their car.  Everything else was destroyed.

Many of my Readers know Jessica and have found their way to Gloriously Vintage because of her generous help and support of my blog.  I was invited to write a guest post in September on Chronically Vintage.

There is a Facebook Page and a YouCaring Page  set up to help Jessica and Tony recover.   Please share this post – all help and support means everything to them and will enable Jessica and Tony to get back on their feet again.

Let us keep them in our thoughts and prayers as they regroup and carry on.



About Gloriously Vintage

My name is Elizabeth. I am so thrilled to be learning how to write a blog about my adventures collecting vintage treasures. This new adventure is to mark my 60th Birthday this February in 2016 and to start this decade with something new. I have been collecting Powder compacts, 1950's costume jewellery, vintage handbags, silk scarves, vintage umbrellas and hats for over five years now. I try to wear and use as much of my collections as possible. This has added great enjoyment to my life! As a child my "best game " was always dressing up. I kept all my dressing up clothes in a large wooden banded trunk in the spare bedroom -the third bedroom. Creating outfits and characters, wearing jewellery always with a handbag and a powder compact I would play on my own for hours. Most of my treasures then came from jumble sales and bric a brac shops browsed with my parents on holiday. Life has a way of coming round full circle. In my fifties I found increasing joy in being able to just be myself and adopt the hairstyle I wanted and the vintage look that suited me. I source all my "top clothes" from Oxfam on line and charity shops Mixing new tops, shoes and sometimes handbags with my vintage accessories has given me a signature style that is unique. I have always tried to be an individual and not follow the crowd. I find most of my collections at vintage fairs, charity shops and going to Antiques for Everyone at the NEC has been a marvellous time for hunting out treasures and learning more about the things that have sparked real passion for me.
