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!
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…
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!
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!
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
