Paraphernalia Loves You!
We at Paraphernalia design beauteous and wholesome accouterments for both Ladies and Gentlemen. We are much inspired by both vintage illustrations and 19th century magicians. We also enjoy the odd, the unusual, the uncanny and the bizarre, in all the aspects of beauty.

Everything is handmade by Ms. Vanda in her studio in Manchester, United Kingdom, using vintage illustrations, printed and cut acrylic, and silver-plated chains. We strive to provide extraordinary, beautifully original pieces at affordable prices, so that you may embellish yourself with merely a pittance.

Paraphernalia is sold around the world in various stores, as well as in our very own little on-line shop. We have an original aesthetic sense and sensibility that attracts a milieu of different creatures and characters who enjoy our designs.

Please head out to our website at for more information on our beauteous creations, or visit our Blog for life, cheers and updates!

How soon will I get these lovely things?
All orders are dispatched in two to four working days and are sent by Royal Mail from the UK, which means that International Orders will usually be delivered from 5 to 10 working days, but they can take up to 4 weeks (this is highly unusual, however!), and they won’t have a tracking number. I’m really sorry about this, but this would make regular shipping much too expensive!

However, if you need it faster, gift wrapped, or with a special message, let me know!
