Hi everybody, and how is 2011 treating you? I hope everyone managed to have a good break over Christmas and New Year. We managed to take a whole week off - yes, one whole week! Which is quite a feat when you are self employed. We had a lovely time visting family, catching up with friends and catching our breath to be refreshed for another year of vintage adventures.
We've been a bit quiet this month but worry not, we are busy working away in the background to bring you lots of exciting new developments for the new year. Of course there are the usual dull chores like getting the accounts done, putting some new shelves and generally sorting stuff out after the madness that was the Christmas shopping season, but we have also been scouting down the finest vintage pieces, working on some new products and filling our diary with some lovely vintage events over the coming months, so, keep those peepers on our Facebook page for all the news. In the meantime, if you fancy seeing us in the real world for a bit of vintage retail therapy, here are some dates for your diary...
Bristol Vintage Fair, 29th January
Sheffield Vintage Fair, 19th February
Macclesfield Make Do And Mend Vintage Fair, 26th February
Birmingham Vintage Fair, 5th March
Sutton Vintage & Arts Fair, 13th March
Leicester Vintage Fair, 19th March
We're chomping at the bit to get back on the road, and have some lovely new stock for y'all, so hopefully see you around!
Aside from our day to day vintage selling activities, we've been getting busy doing some styling for photoshoots recently, working with the cream of the creative crop in the West Midlands. It's a fun way to meet talented people and indulge our passion for vintage fashion! Here are a few fruits of our labours...
Jemma Dodd is a fantastic photographer who we have worked with a few times before, so we were happy to assist on her dark fairytale themed shoot, and the results were superb! Make up was by the fabulous Lush By Sharon Ann.
