LondonTattoo2

Set in the beautiful, yet airy (as in, pretty chilly) Tobacco Dock, getting the stall sorted for London Tattoo Convention felt like getting ready to trade in rather cool dungeons. The poster for the event was full of promise, designed by the very talented Valerie Vargas of Frith Street Tattoo, who Fliss is privileged to have been tattooed by. The upstairs of Tobacco Dock was filled with rooms and rooms of tattooists, while the basement was full of retail joy of all kinds. The event was a giant maze, you had to stick to your map to make sure you didn’t miss anything.

LondonTattoo1

Now, Voyager was thrilled to be a stone’s throw away from coveted Jane Doe Latex couture, designed by the stunning Nina Kate. Jane Doe presented fire shows featuring The Fuel Girls right outside our doorway. To add to the excitement, Jane Doe items at the show were on promotional sale prices! Fliss couldn’t resist the cuteness of the latex bow belts.

LondonTattoo3

Within our room, we met milliners Little Miss B, gothic jewellery maker Tea of Sacre Coeur, teddy bear piercer Nick of Blue Tattoo and Gemma & Sam of Voodoo Betty’s Boutique, specialising in quirky handmade shoppers. Beauty Laura Meekums popped by, who you may have noticed gracing the pages of our site.

LondonTattoo5

We were very grateful to have extra hands on board – huge happy thanks to good friends Rayna Terror, Donkey & Jenny who came along to keep us company! Rayna was super excited to launch her first calendar for 2011 ‘Reign of Terror’, photographed by Mendoza. It went down a treat, many guys making a beeline for our stall to have a gander!

LondonTattoo4

Across the way was Cam of handmade jewellery brand Bow & Crossbones, Aracelli of Old Skull presenting her new range, Limb to-die-for vintage inspired dresses, Creepsville accessories with amazing customised mannequins for the show, Kirsty & Nick of Sacred Stitches tattoo inspired clothing & homewear & Stick ‘em up Pin Up for all your hair extension needs.

LondonTattoo7

Also close by was the Sailor Jerry stand, offering free mini mixers to all. We met the team of Total Tattoo Magazine, where accomplished fetish photographer Doralba Picerno was working. We are thrilled to be shooting our new range with her early October.

LondonTattoo6

While we spent most of the time in the ‘dungeon’, we managed to pop up to say hi to Naomi & Val at Frith Street Tattoo. Rayna ran into tattooist Phil Kyle.

We also made a not quite yawn-free appearance at Born Bad rockabilly night at the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club. We’d had a long day but we still enjoyed the live bands in the comfort of seats!

LondonTattoo8

Our verdict is that London Tattoo Convention offers the best shopping of any tattoo convention that we have so far visited, in terms of variety & affordability. There was a strong offer for both guys & girls, with many vendors offering sale sections within their stands or slashed prices.

We are looking forward to our second appearance at Brighton Tattoo Convention at the end of Jan! Keep an eye on our blog category Event Dates for Your Diary to see when we will next be popping up in a town near you!

VintageVogueB3

We kicked off September with our closest-to-home fair Vintage Vogue in Brentwood. A dance floor was added to the event, what a treat! We would love to be able to dance but our clumsiness holds us back so we just watch in awe. However, we did get in on the glamour by getting our hair styled at Hair Aid. Shelter for the bargain price of £10. Vintage hairstyles are surprisingly addictive.

VintageVogueB2

We were positioned next to the lovely Sew Swell. This time they were offering beautiful hand-made cards created using Sian’s kitsch hand-drawn artwork & a cute selection of retro clothing. It wouldn’t be Vintage Vogue without a trip to our beloved playsuit stall, Beach Bygones!

VintageVogueB1

We paid a visit to Michele’s knitted sweater stall. Michele was wearing one of her designs, an adorable sailor style sweater. We need not fear our winter wardrobes anymore! We also saw friends Fiona & Joe of Togged to the Bricks, with lots of 50s dresses increasing their tempting selection & ROSIE LEE CLOTHING, with her new range of couture vintage-inspired hats. This time around, we also managed to pop into the tea rooms for some homemade cake. Yum!

We are privileged that SEW SWELL & ROSIE LEE CLOTHING will be joining us for our Craft & Vintage Fair in November.

Berk1

For the second week of September, we joined Jenny’s Hertfordshire Vintage Fairs for the debut Berkhamsted fair. With the cold weather (sadly) hot on our heels, it’s time to start seriously thinking about the dreaded winter wardrobe. When you don’t want to follow the high street’s rather miserable hues, you can always turn to vintage fairs for experts ready to brighten up wardrobe blues.

Berk2

Blondie Retro Clothing Boutique, known for their rather sparkly offer, were offering sequin embellished jumpers for £35. Fliss grabbed a super sparkly sequin harlequin jumper dress. Togged to the Bricks had a lovely selection of transitional 50s check dresses in autumnal tones. Rag & Bow were all about the season must have-vintage capes.

Mildew cards were offering not only their great range of greeting cards, but also boxes of photograph & decoupage treasure which we cooed over. Walking away with a good handful, we have Claire to thank for our Now, Voyager Craft & Vintage Fair mascot – The Spagetti Queen of 1958!

WingsWheels

We also popped up at Turweston Wings & Wheels Show for Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, where they show-cased vintage cars & planes in unison.

VintageAtGoodwood4

When we arrived at Vintage at Goodwood to set up the stall, it was like entering our very own fairy tale. The toy town look of the event was super cute, the mini high street was adorable down to the littlest detail-the Goodwood shop had awning made to look like a swing dress and the Cath Kitson store with its window boxes….ooh-ohhh-dorable!

VintageAtGoodwood1

For excited festival-goers, the entrance was a mock-curtain archway with a red carpet, which gradually came into view as you walked down the fairy-lit woodland path. We chuckled when we saw the Butlins skyline tent, as we enjoyed a happy, cheesy ole family holiday at Butlins, Minehead over the summer.

VintageAtGoodwood7

Jess became slightly obsessed with the Demon Drome Wall of Death, where a bike is driven around a vertical wall while the rider also performs stunts, sometimes riding with no hands! They drive so close to where you stand, it’s unreal. If you haven’t already seen this, you need to! They also have a really cool female daredevil Sam “The Dutchess” Munn. We “oooh”-ed and “arhh”-ed and loved every second of it! Plus, it was a very affordable £5 per ticket.

VintageAtGoodwood6

We had our fun photo-booth experience at The Mighty Booth, where you can take in a bunch of crazy hats and attempt to get as many on in your 4 pics! We had some laughs in that booth! Fliss got to sneak off to see the Noisettes for the second time this year and the acoustics of the venue made for a super special performance!

VintageAtGoodwood3

While we didn’t get to enjoy everything that looked amazing, we’ll tell you about all the things we wished we’d done…tea & cake at Fortnum and Mason, enjoyed Lush’s beach (but Jess did get a massage!), watched Jessie and the Orbits and rode the carnival.

VintageAtGoodwood2

Judy, Sam, Emma, Sarah & the team of Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair, who amazingly curated the entire vintage marketplace, all looked beautiful in their yellow Judy dresses, as well as in their vintage finest! They set a glamorous example for us all! Judy tipped us off about the amazing make overs they were doing at the Beauty Box with very talented freelance make-up and hair stylists, so we managed to get an appointment before they filled up completely.

VintageAtGoodwood5

We were located on the Yellow Brick Road, alongside loads of amazing traders such as Anna’s vintage stall and Tatty Devine. Before we began trading on the Friday, Wayne Hemmingway himself came to each stall grouping and thanked us for taking part in the first Vintage at Goodwood. Fliss did screech in excitement, but managed to hold it in until he was in the next stall section!

VintageAtGoodwood10

Over on Penny Lanes, we found many friendly faces-the lovely Hazel of Rag & Bow, Rosa with her family supporting Rosilee Clothing & Hats, fellow UEL Alumni Katie Rose of House of Lalka…We managed to sneak a little shopping in…Jess got a Demon Drome tee & some bandanas for her new rockabilly look, Fliss bagged herself cocktail umbrella matching broach & earrings from Tatty Devine, a Vintage at Goodwood souvenir tee and a very pretty stripe & rose print dress from Rag & Bow. We also ran into the Seaside Sisters in their bunting making workshop.

VintageAtGoodwood8

We were joined by Vintage Victory’s Katy and Gerardo and together, we ran competitions for those who were kind enough to join our shared mailing list. If you haven’t joined yet, you can do so by typing your e-mail address in the carnival ticket in the top right corner of our website, where it says ‘Join us’ so that we can let you know about all the fabulous events we will be at!

VintageAtGoodwood9

Vintage at Goodwood was the most fabulous event we have had the pleasure of being part of so far, and we are already excited for next year’s event! If you didn’t go this year, don’t miss out next year. In the meantime, keep an eye on our blog category Event Dates for Your Diary to see when we will next be popping up in a town near you!

SSRG2 copy

To round off July, we were thrilled to be invited to take part in the Seaside Siren Roller Girls’ Summer Jam . A local Southend evening event featuring music acts Steve Hooker band and ukulele wielding storyteller Wendy Solomon. Though we have now stocked Steve Hooker’s range of rockabilly tees for near on a year, it was the first time we got to see him perform and he did not disappoint!

SSRG copy

We were proud to support the Seaside Sirens fundraising efforts, their dedication to their sport is refreshing to see! If we took up skating however, I think Fliss would end up dedicated to the hospital emergency room! We are happy to settle being honorary Sirens…

Tattoo Jam copy

We kicked off August with a trip to Doncaster for Tattoo Jam. We had the lovliest stall neighbours you could wish for a 3 day event! We were beside Nick & Kirsty from Sacred Stitches, Nick of Blue Tattoo & friends Claire & James of Mildew Cards. Scared Stitches’ stall looked amazing as ever-with their mix of tattoo-inspired craft, clothes & artwork. Their passion is with their embroidered cushion range, though my heart was with the felt unicorn & deer heads. So much so that Kirsty made Fliss a mini version that I could turn into a hair clip!

Tattoo Jam2 copy

James had been busy hand-painting skulls especially for their first Tattoo Convention. Their custom cards went down a treat, as they have also been in our lil shop.

Claire & Fliss also poured over fellow hair accessories label Diablo Jo. Jo’s flamboyant fascinators are perfect to make any outfit a statement. Fliss got a Roller Derby themed fascinator, while Claire went for the full on graveyard scene. We had a lot of fun at her stall!

Tattoo Jam3 copy

Though the highlight was meeting the truly lovely & super talented Anna Fur Laxis! Such a pleasure!

Our next tattoo convention will be the one we’ve all been waiting for….London Tattoo Convention! Eeep! We will be joined by the gorgeous Rayna Terror launching her first EVER calendar. We have had a sneaky peak and we can’t wait to launch it! Perfect Christmas gift for guys and girls alike! It will also be available on our website from early October.

Cake & Kisses,

Felicity & Jess

Vibebar copy

The first half of July brought us back to Hitchin for Jenny’s Hertfordshire Vintage & Accessories Fair, we popped up at Vibe Bar, Brick Lane and we loved our first Lovebox!

At Vibe Bar, we were joined by the very talented Miss Jacqueline White with her embroidered ‘Naughty Tees’, inspired by the brutal dating game of the modern single lady. We also met the lovely Miwary, a seamstress who can turn anything she finds into a quirky creation.

Hitchin copy

Back in Hitchin on the second week of July, we were parked next to the lovely Hazel of Rag & Bow vintage. We couldn’t resist a bargain from her £10 rail. Felicity bagged herself the perfect Holly Hobbie style circle skirt. We also loved the selection from Hitchin’s local vintage store Jolly Brown, with their adorable 50s diner style tops for £12. We also picked up some adorable tattoo-inspired cards from Mildew for our lil shop.

Lovebox copy

The middle of July found us at Now, Voyager’s very first festival-Lovebox with the fabulous Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair. We were received with a whole lot of love-it seemed that everyone wanted something for their hair! We were joined by the lovely Stacey & Gemma Solomon, a massive thank you to them for sending lots of people over to meet us for hair candy!

Lovebox2 copy

We did manage to sneak off to see some music-Jess was up front for Dizzee and Fliss was in her element jumping around for Noisettes and Paloma Faith. She even had the pleasure of meeting Noisette front lady Shoniwa.

We had our faces painted, enjoyed the sunshine and ate a whole lot of ice cream. With the ice cream van next to our marquee, what were we girls supposed to do?

Lovebox3 copy

When it was time to pack up and head off home, we faced protesting customers still wanting to do some last minute shopping-bizarre but certainly made our day!

Keep an eye on our blog category Event Dates for Your Diary to see when we will next be popping up in a town near you!

Whole lotta love,

Felicity & Jess

The last weekend of June saw us split between Chelsea and Rochford for two very different events. On the Saturday we joined a bunch of crafters to fill the truly beautiful Chelsea Town Hall for We Make London. Felicity was thrilled to meet the super talented Zoe of Love From Hetty & Dave, a very orginal, inspirational brand. Zoe’s collections always have a new quirky edge and this time round it’s all about the rabbit & mouse rings.

WeMake copy

We feel in love with Cara’s Creations’ handmade petticoats & adorable ballerina print sure to complete any lil girl’s room.

The Seaside Sisters were teaching the willing public how to make bunting. We also saw the lovely Crème Nouveau & Hatastic , who we had just had the pleasure of meeting at Brighton Fashion Week. Crème Nouveau were showcasing their new Twinkle Deluxe super sparkly broaches. Hatastic was showing off the fab Jigsaw Puzzle fascinator.

WeMake2 copy

Love from B are also a dab hand at knitting. Their hottest new necklace is their tea-time heart for a very affordable £12.

On the Sunday, we swapped for the outdoors to take part in the Pure Nostalgia car show. Joined by the lovely Rayna Terror, Donks and Vintage Victory’s Geraldo & Katy, we had a fabulous time in the sunshine.

PureNostalgia copy

The cars were lush, the makeshift dance floor buzzing and the ladies were glamorous. Our friend Fiona from Togged to the Bricks

was ultra glam, placing runner up for the Best Dressed Competition.

We visited Hipnotique Vintage, who will also be joining us at Vintage Vogue Fair, Brentwood later in the year. Hipnotique’s union jack gazebo was too bold to miss, and we enjoyed a good rummage round their stall!

PureNostalgia2 copy

Our very first outside stall taught us the need for a gazebo and we were super grateful that Rayna & Donks came to our rescue and saved us from sun stroke!

Sunshine & Kisses,
