Birmingham Vintage Fair, 12th June 2010

We always love doing events in Brum as it means we can have a bit of a lie in! Also, it seems that Birmingham folk have an insatiable appetite for vintage, which we are more than happy to cater for! So we were back at the Custard Factory on Saturday 12th June with a fantastic selection of summer delights - cute sun dresses, hawaiian shirts, denim hotpants and kitsch trinkets were the order of the day. It was the day of England's first match, so James Mouse showed his support in a 1982 England shirt, which attracted many compliments from vintage loving fellas.


We were next to the lovely Jill and Jim from Alfie Robot Retro, who sell amazing vintage homewares, as well as handmade coasters and placemats which feature images from 70's cookbooks (I have two on my coffee table, they rule!).


As usual, we scoffed our fill of cupcakes and had a good old rummage around the stalls. We met some lovely folk too, including a lady who was visiting from Northern Ireland and bought a one off reworked vintage necklace from us, and some regular customers who had popped along for a spot of shopping. All in all, a great day out!

Pixie Lott rocks a Scrabble Ring


What a lovely lady that Pixie Lott is. Not only does she produce toe tappingly catchy party pop, she also has rather fabulous taste in jewellery. Which explains why she has been spotted out and about wearing a personalised Scrabble ring, and why she is also rocking one in the video for her latest single, Turn It Up.

If you wanna make like Pixie and Scrabblify your fingers, you can by popping over to our ebay shop here, where we also have Scrabble necklaces, earrings and bracelets, as well as cufflinks for the boys!

Fairs Galore!

We've been busy little bees (or should that be mice?) this past week, attending two fabulous vintage events. The first was on Wednesday 3rd June, in St Paul's Square, Birmingham. It was a glorious day and St Paul's Square is a lovely spot to sun yourself for a few hours. The Nostalgic Love A Fayre was held in aid of the Alzheimer's Society, and took the theme of a traditional village fete, complete with coconut shy, hoopla and brass band! There was also a pretty ace fashion show, styled by Amy from Vintage Reflection. Here are some pictures from the day-
On Saturday we headed east to Nottingham, for the first vintage fair at the fabulously named Spanky Van Dyke's Eatery and Funhouse. It was a real scorcher of a day, but thankfully the heat and sunshine didn't keep the vintage hungry crowds from heading in to peruse our wares. Here are some pics-
We had a lovely time and sold out of many pieces - which means I am going to be busy replenishing our stocks in time for the Birmingham fair this coming Saturday. Hopefully see you there!
