Discover the vintage and antique lace, bridal gowns, occasion wear and accessories at Days of Grace Vintage
Located close to the pebbly shores of Budleigh Salterton, Days of Grace is a glorious emporium of vintage and antique lace, bridal gowns, occasion wear and accessories. You’ll find the likes of original Edwardian lace and cotton gowns alongside embroidered ‘20s French lace, ‘70s dresses and a host of timelessly romantic sleeved ‘40s and ‘50s styles.
Perfect for brides seeking something one-of-a-kind, you can build your ensemble from scratch or select a reimagined gown from the in-house handcrafted collection that uses original vintage lace in ‘modern sizes’, which can be bought or custom-made to suit.
Owner, stylist and textiles expert Linda Duriez is passionate about vintage apparel and is replete with knowledge to help you create your look, from recreating era wear to tailoring something from her ready-to-wear collection to ensure it fits like a glove and looks like a dream. And with an emphasis on affordability, brides seeking something with an edge of boho, debutante or Hollywood glamour need look no further for a budget-friendly and bespoke bridal look.
For those all-important finishing touches, the boutique also houses a collection of antique veils and one-of-a-kind headdresses – think stunning crowns made with antique and vintage jewellery and antique pieces adorned with intricate waxed flowers – as well as jewellery, bags and gloves from a range of eras. There’s even a range of lingerie dating from the ‘30s and ‘40s for brides keen to bring a vintage vibe to their honeymoon.
