Lotty Blue is an online shop based in Staffordshire selling retro/mid century modern items including vintage aprons, cookware, gifts and furniture.
This video “Bursting with Colour” for Lotty Blue has recently been shot by film maker Steve Cranston of Stafford-based Lilac Films Ltd.
Lotty Blue owner Lisa is delighted to have secured the services of the popular singer and entertainer Miss Lola Lamour who’s 1950s styling lends its self perfectly to the atmosphere of the film. Miss Lamour, who has previously appeared on BBC, ITV and Channel 4, embraces all things vintage and has recently been featured on the front cover of Vintage Life magazine. Lisa says “It was a really enjoyable experience to be filming a 1950s style film for today’s audience, dressing the set and choosing evocative products from the LottyBlue retro range to feature alongside Lola, who brought along her own collection of immaculate and authentic vintage clothes, shoes and accessories.”
“I just love anything vintage. Even from an early age I loved recycling old furniture. I used to sit painting cupboards and wooden chairs to breathe new life into them. Some of my earliest memories are of going to jumble sales and garden fetes with my Nan, Lotty, who loved to search out pre-owned items that she could lovingly restore for use in her home.”
Lotty Blue is named after Lisa’s Nan and she works hard to emulate her Nan’s old-fashioned values and beliefs by offering her customers traditional customer service and by actively promoting British suppliers and products. Keep your eyes on the Lotty Blue blog for news of an upcoming pop-up shop appearing in Stafford soon!
Lisa says “This year we are very happy to be stocking some fantastic products that are produced by British designers such as Lisa Stickley London and John Green Furniture and are always on the look-out for new products that would complement our range. I am very proud of the strong design heritage in the UK and love buying British for my on-line store.”
Lotty Blue owner Lisa has very kindly offered to give away one ‘Gloria’ vintage style apron to one of my blog readers. The beautiful 1950s inspired cotton apron has a great vintage tea and coffee pots design with one side pocket, a pink bow and rose pink edging. It ties at the back and there are buttons at the neck.
