Find Yours, in Paper, Net, Lace, and Leather

See you at Stall 13, this March 10/11 - the Big and Busty Vintage and Handmade Doodah - Central Milton Keynes. Come and find Your Book.


Keep your privates, Private

Note books supplied with stitched copper and nickel fabric at the rear in which to slip your phone.

This wonderful flexible and lightweight fabric blocks wireless applications, so your phone doesn't respond when you pass those points where the bastards are trying to suck your data out your system. Perfect kit to add to your bag on the way out.


Thank you to the Knicker Drawers Collective

Thank you to the lovely people who came to say Hello at Stall 13 at the Vintage and Handmade Weekend, Central Milton Keynes, 5-6 November '17.

You told me stories of your who-you-are, showed me your amazing books, and told me how you're going to note, draw, doodle, stitch, pin, glue, tear, bend, stain, and happily trash your note book.

If you have a Knicker Drawer Book for the sea, take it to the shore and get it wet. If you have a book for the woods, scatter it with earth and bind it with leaves. And if you have a Knicker Drawer Note Book for your soul, then fill it with the breathings of your heart.



November. Month of shadows and veils; the month of half-light, a slipping of time; the month was made for glances, glimpses of knowledges, half revealed, half concealed; fictions and truths, darkness and light. This month was made for story. Choose a book for November.

On sale at Number 38 Vintage Emporium, and the weekend of 4/5 November 2017 at the Handmade and Vintage show in Central Milton Keynes.


Dragons, owls, green

Book with pockets, folds, tucks and secret places to locate objects, notes, and scraps; green leaf stitch flows through selected pages, and layers invite the snatch of feather. Beware! The dragon trapped inside breathes fire! Sketch paper, note paper, hand-twisted natural dyed felt, hand-marbled paper, buckle and cog. Everything here, except the owner's hand, brushing those pages.


Stop everything

The colour red
passion drama love taking sides revolutions anger life blood heat strength stop decide make way
for here comes a Woman

Books in October designed and stitched for power and passion. Thank you to Alex and Annette for the inspiration.
