veronicaCrumpet & Skirtis a new gift and homeware range for the discerning pin-up devotee. Designed by Stokey-based Elizabeth Pinnock, the products showcase images of saucy Fifties ladies, tastefully attired in vintage undies and assuming a range of coquettish poses.

With ambitions to become a cross between Anna Neagle, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth started her career as an actress. After training at The Central School of Speech and Drama she went into the real world where Hollywood forgot to call.

Whilst waiting for James Cameron to find her number, Elizabeth spent many hours indulging her love of all things vintage and finding other outlets for creativity. Crumpet & Skirt came out of this creativity and the personal desire to produce high quality products like in the old days.

 Elizabeth was inspired by the fabulous sexiness of pin-up girls, and decided to use them in simple designs that showcase the images in the best possible way. Both civilised and saucy, there’s no need to hide them when Granny comes for Tea.

ritaWe love Elizabeth’s wide range of stationary from cards (perfect for Valentine’s!) to wrapping paper and her assortment of saucy gifts such as mugs and tea towels.
