Hertford1ablog

In April we found ourselves back in Hertford for Holly’s vintage fair, then back to Brighton for our very first Rosilee Clothing, plus Fi & Phil of Togged to the Bricks, who also joined us at our very own ‘A-Fayre to Remember’ craft & vintage fair. Rosilee‘s glamorous hats are a colourful, elegant tribute to the 40s & 50s.

We fell in love with Togged to the Bricks’ excellent selection of 30’s-50’s clothing. Felicity bagged herself an amazing cream lace 40s dress and a lilac lace prom belonging to the 50s for a very fair price indeed! It was impossible to resist such a selection!

Jess & Felicity also love the banter involved in having their cousin Wes at the Hertford fairs, with his fab selection of vintage comics and framed romance comics. Now, Voyager now proudly owns two of these girly goodies!

We were delighted with a visit from local boutique Amanda Ralph Wardrobe, who selected boats, birds and cake hair pieces to be used in a local Hertford children’s fashion show.

The following week we were off to Brighton, determined to relax the evening before the fair for a change! After a quick walk to the beach, we spent our evening on the fastest of pier rides, trying to keep our lunches down! Jessie Rose kindly put us up again, and the least we could do was give her a new birdie for her hair as our thank you.

Frock me blog

Frock me we were organised the morning of the fair, set up a full half hour before the doors opened, we must be finally getting the hang of this! Jess was pleased with her Now, Voyager does Gaga style coke can hair clip, insisting that she needed one after falling in love with the ‘Telephone’ video.

We were surrounded by lots of new faces and vintage galore! Jess had her eyes on a light beige faux fur jacket but couldn’t decide if she could pull it off. Felicity got a lovely hand-made gardening apron to use for hair accessory making-it can get a little messy, glue strings are like cobwebs!

After a pleasant day, we said goodbye to Brighton until mid-June, when we return as part of Brighton Fashion Week. We are super-excited about charming our way into that one!

This past weekend we found ourselves at the Birmingham NEC for the Memorabilia 2010 Show, and did we have a great time!  We had expanded our cake range especially for the event, and they went down a storm! We managed to squeeze in a bit of shopping and met some lovely stall holders including Japanese inspired tee brand Genki Gear (run by husband and wife team Phil and Lydia) and the UK-based Marilyn Monroe fan club Mad About Marilyn.

Memorabilia copy

But it would seem that all the excitement was saved for the Sunday when it was discovered that Justin and Sarah Jane from Cbeebies’  Tikkabilla and Higgledy House were doing a signing- pretty exciting stuff when you have very young nieces and nephews like us and watch a lot of kids TV! They may have caught us singing and dancing along with the little ‘uns…

Memorabilia2 copy

After a group of Storm Troopers snuck behind our stall and we run into the Stig and the Joker lookey likeys, the weekend had passed by in a blur and it was time to pack up and head home. We will next be in Hertford for Holly’s next vintage fair, then in Brighton for our first Frock Me vintage fair, shortly followed by our very own ‘An A-Fayre to Remember’ Vintage & Craft Fair at the Railway Tavern, Southend on Sunday 2nd May. Anyone who has a crafty side get in touch for a stall!

We have been giving our beloved little shop a makeover over this past month in order to accomodate all of our new lovlies on offer! This includes burlesque inspired cards and tee shirts from Miss Monique’s boutique, a larger range of Steve Hooker tees and our new Hell Bunny polka dot Minnie Mouse-esque dresses and petticoats. These are all soon to be featured on the site so keep your eyes pealed and in the meantime, consider jumping on a train for a day trip to the seaside to visit us!

The last few weeks have been all about the vintage fairs for Now, Voyager. We began in Hertford on Saturday 27th Feb for a day of tea and homemade cake for Holly’s Vintage Fair at the Corn Exchange. Our stall was opposite Felicity’s cousin Wes’ amazing vintage comic stall from which we couldn’t resist purchasing a framed 50’s romance comic to put up in our shop! Thank you Emma- who looked absolutely beautiful in her Now, Voyager hair corsage- for coming to visit us and bringing your lovely friends!  We will be back in Hertford for Holly’s next event on Saturday April 17th, see you there?

vintage fairs blog size

The following week, on Sunday 7th March we were off to Hitchin for Jenny’s Hertfordshire Vintage Fashion Fair and this established event is so popular it fills both rooms of the Town Hall to the brim. The stalls range from a very large selection of vintage clothing to old movie magazines to an array of homeware including some adorable tea sets. The urge to shop was almost irresitable and if we hadn’t have been quite so busy we could have done some serious damage to our purses!  There is always next time-we will be at Jenny’s next event in Harpington Sunday 16th May.

Thank you Hannah for making sure that we didn’t get lost and for coming along! Next time we will definately take you up on the tour of Hitchin’s fab little boutiques.

We have to confess, our favourite thing about vintage fairs has got to be the tea on tap! That, combined with the eclectic mix of stalls and variety of cake on offer makes it a fabulous experience! If you missed these events, be sure to come along to one of the next ones.

Cake & Kisses,

And that means it’s time to start thinking about spring cleaning your wardrobe! So, chuck out that moth-eaten knitwear and cast aside those jeans with the saggy knees and come find all the vintage and repro treasures you’ll need for those difficult spring months fast approaching.  Now, Voyager are delighted to have  been invited to attend two vintage fairs in the next couple of weeks, will we be seeing you?

BGWMC Love A-Fayre Blog

The weekend before Valentine’s Day we found ourselves back at the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club– and boy, were we pleased to be back!  It seemed everyone was in the mood for love as the club got busier and busier while we bopped away to a gentlemen played the organ onstage to get us in the mood for the burlesque that was to follow later in the afternoon.  Thank you to our friends who paid us a visit it was great to see you all, especially Ian and Ellie with little Flo and our model Laura (you’ll find the beautiful brunette modelling our clothing and accessories on here).

Once we’d settled in we took a trip round the room to visit the other stalls and it was lovely to see Lady Luck Rules OK (and get our mitts on the last of their personalised jewellery!), Be-Bop-A-Lula, Tea, Cakes and 78s and the beautiful Elisabeth (aka Miss Rose Thorne), who we might add looked DIVINE in our Collectif red fur-trimmed jacket (which will soon be added to the website).  We’d like to thank Garudio Studiage for our lovely little “flat pet” rabbit; he’s settled into the store wonderfully!  Our stall was placed next to the lovely Seaside Sisters, who in keeping with nautical theme bought a pair of our sail boat hair clips and wore them all afternoon- they looked fab!

seaside

At four o’clock Elisabeth took to the stage to compere the burlesque and whip the crowd up into a frenzy, informing the uninitiated of the rules of burlesque: the louder you cheer, the more comes off! We particularly enjoyed Ginger Blush’s fast-paced traditional routine and Princess Angelique’s Indian inspired fan dance, and of course Emerald Fontaine’s Marie Antoinette style routine which included pulling a champagne fountain and bottle from beneath her dress and showering the audience with cash procured form a pouch attached to her bustle!  After the show Princess Angelique made a beeline for our stall and stocked up on loads of our cake hair accessories and jewellery.

So, after a love-filled day we packed up and headed home for a well deserved rest before picking out Now, Voyager’s Spring/Summer range at LondonEdge the next day. We can’t wait to show the beautiful candy striped dresses and nautical playsuits we’ve handpicked for you- watch this space!

Love and Kisses

Lauren and Felicity
