Childlike Empress Vintage is a collection of sweet vintage clothing for babies and little kids. Hand-knitted jumpers, hand-sewn onesies, art smocks & sailor suits. Often a little bit wonky, sometimes a little bit worn, but so obviously full of love that I couldn't help but smile when I found them!

My name is Helen - I live in Perth, Western Australia, and spend most of my free time hunting for fun bits & pieces from times gone by.  

I've loved, collected and sold vintage for years, but when I started working at Henry Hiccups, the most special & lovely toy shop in Perth (if not the world), I began to meet a lot of people who shared my love for old-fashioned, traditional kids' stuff.

This lead me to the realisation that some people might be interested in the vintage pieces I'd been collecting and stowing away. I hope you'll find something here that will make you smile, and maybe make a bub in your life smile, too!

Please note - I try to describe the sizing and condition of my pieces as accurately and clearly as I can, but please contact me if you would like any more information.
