*Very Sad News*

I just wanted to let everyone know that my Mum
lost her battle with cancer &
sadly passed away on Monday night.
I've closed Vintage Amethyst for the time being & I'm not sure when I will re-open.

Thank you to everyone who gave support over this last year & I thank you for all the kindness everyone has shown during this horrid time.

Please be kind & patient with me if you are waiting for any order or indeed an e-mail, I know you will all understand & I thank you ...
