The Spotty Dogs Story

Back in 2012 Sarah Mills turned her personal passion for shabby chic interiors, vintage glass, fabrics and china into a business reality and launched The Spotty Dogs Company from a laptop at her kitchen table in Derbyshire.

Sourcing unique pieces and irresistible curiosities to create an individual sense of interior decor, Sarah began selling her style ideas online through Facebook and Instagram and soon generated a following at markets, vintage and handmade events across The Midlands, The Cotswolds and Worcestershire.

As her love of interiors grew, she began seeking out additional vintage and Brocante-style pieces, each with their individual stories of the past. Now trading as Spotty Dogs Vintage, Sarah showcases an online shop full of interior delights that you won’t find on the high street.

As well as shopping online, items from Spotty Dogs Vintage are also available from the Curly Magpie & Friends shop in Swadlincote – South Derbyshire – and some one-off pieces can be found at Handmade Design in Ashbourne, Derbyshire.

East of India

Sarah is also the South Derbyshire “East of India” registered retailer, and sells a full range of their products at Curly Magpie & Friends in Swadlincote.

East of India’s gorgeous gifts and paraphernalia are designed at their studio in Folkestone and they offer sustainable employment to artisans who are still able to earn a living using traditional skills.

Special finds and unusual treasures

“I simply love working with vintage interiors. Every period piece I source for sale is more than just an item of homeware; it’s already lived a life or two, and is ready to begin another.

“Choosing special pre-loved pieces, alongside uniquely styled new designs is my true pleasure in life. When I’m not adding to the online shop’s collection, you’re likely to find me rummaging for treasure in a field… Sarah x”
