As I mentioned previously, we've been a bit lax on the old blog this year. There's no excuse really, but we have had quite a busy old start of the year. So let's have a bit of a catch up over a nice cup of tea and some biscuits...
Marianne from Minimum Mouse does a bit of work as a stylist here and there, plus we do the odd photoshoot for our own promotion. It's quite addictive - as well as being lots and lots of fun playing dress up, we keep meeting great new creative people with new ideas that we want to get involved with! So far this year we have done numerous photoshoots and worked with some amazing people, some of whom I have mentioned in previous posts.
We have worked with the amazing Ursula Roxy on three different shoots this year, including some menswear shoots which I was really excited about as it isn't always easy to get male models to work with. She is based in Stourbridge, West Midlands, and she does high fashion editorial work which is really stunning, as well as offering wedding photography with a difference. So, if you are looking for some stunning images for whatever reason, get in touch with her! Here are some of the things we have worked on together-
|Country meets urban!|
|This Is England meets Twilight!|
|Old school vintage style|
We also worked with one of our favourite conspirators, Jemma Dodd. We love Jemma's work and have supplied clothes for her shoots lots of times. Recently we did an Alice in Wonderland themed shoot and were so happy with the results!
So far this year has been our busiest ever for vintage fairs and events. We have been all over the country from Bristol to Sheffield - where disaster was narrowly averted as snow showers risked runing the day but stopped just as we were opening the fair! We also visited Macclesfield, where there was a celeb guest - Noddy Holder! We've also been back in Birmingham and Sutton Coldfield, and also Leicester (in the Cathederal - how posh!) and uncharted territory for us - Norwich. We're now filling up our diary for the summer and it looks like it is going to be a busy year for us!
Here are a few pics from our travels...

We've been working away this year to improve our website. We have a new look front page, an easy to use events page and also we've set up a new, improved online shop on our website which we are slowly filling up, so if you don't want to use eBay or Etsy you can now shop direct. Plus we have been working harder than ever to source the best vintage clothing, as well as coming up with lots of lovely new jewellery designs. So watch this space for new items popping up every day!
