Welcome to Decolish -
A Paradise for Art Deco Obsessives! 


Lesley Postle, author of Decolish.com wearing Bakelite Jewelry

My name is Lesley, and I have been collecting Art Deco for about 10 years.  This site is my labour of love.  I'd like to share my experiences and the things I find with like-minded jazz age fanatics. I hope that means you!

There's lots here about everything Art Deco.  I’m hoping that you will find it a useful educational resource as well as a fun place to have a look around at the photos, find out more, and do a bit of shopping too. 



There are so many wonderful things about collecting Art Deco......

Check out all the different categories below.  Each section has several pages of information within. . . .

Fashion, Jewelry and Weddings

The 1920s and 1930s were the best decades for fashion as far as I am concerned.  And those styles still look wonderful today.  One of my major passions is Bakelite jewelry, and you can find lots in my new store.  And there are goodies to buy on every page.  Update your wardrobe and fill up your dressing tables!

Collect now, as jazz age stuff will soon be antiques!

As I keep telling myself, we have a duty to rescue the so-called junk our grannies and aunties have been trying so hard to chuck out for the last decade or so.  In a few years all these bits and bobs will be bona fide antiques, and boy, will they be worth a few bob then.  So if you still really need an excuse for your collecting zeal, call it investing for the future, and you won't be so far wrong either. 


Buy the best you can! 

Pick the best quality items you can, and look after them for your children and your children's children.  Use them, enjoy them, reinvent them and recycle them, but above all, treasure them.
