We popped up for an evening for Della’s Rock-ola at The Paddocks, Canvey Island to let local 50s enthusiasts and swing dance lovers know about our lil shop. This happily coincided with Jayson’s band playing so we got to spend the evening with Claire and her family too.
Launching our much loved flying and perched bird hair clips in pastels and brining along Freddies of Pinewood classic high waist denim, we got many new customers to the jump on the Now, Voyager band wagon. We will be back at Rock-ola on October 8th with the featured band Red Hot Rockers.
Two days later, we were up bright and early on our way to Leicester to take part in Judy’s Affordable Vintage Fair. The sun was shining and we were eager to launch our sunflower trio hair clips. We ate more of Sam’s fabulous carrot cake for breakfast and later on, her brand spanking new creation-jelly in a tea cup!
Felicity grabbed a cute sparkly bow from Kathleen & Lily’s. Not only do they offer hand-crafted insect jewellery and lux hair bows, but they also alter vintage garments on the spot. Handy people to know!
Quality Kitsch offer dead-stock bits and pieces from 50s hair pins to 80s broaches. They also have an established eBay shop selling a wide variety of kitsch goodies.
It was a very hot day indeed, and when the customers cleared Felicity found her dream 80s party dress…off the shoulder emerald green metallic taffeta and black velvet cake-like creation by Jessica McClintock. Vintage fairs certainly have an addictive quality, which is good for us as there are plenty in our future! Keep an eye on our blog category Event Dates for Your Diary to see when we will next be in a town near you!
Cake & Kisses,
Felicity & Jess
