Kinky Melon's Retro Boutique was out on the road again yesterday, selling our wares to the good folk of Staffordshire and beyond.
Lisa, the amazing organiser, allocated us a fantastic pitch.
Clare and Maisie from Maisie's Vintage Closet were our neighbours. (Clare kindly took the photos of Jon & I together.)
There was lots of mutual rail shuffling and both of us ended up buying from one another. In fact I made two purchases yesterday (tut tut). I'll share them later this week, when I'm hopefully looking less knackered and can do my purchases justice.
The scooter rally was awesome.
The mods were very taken with our 1960s menswear.
My paisley maxi from those sweet Squirrels gotta lotta love. (At least I think that's why I was asked pose for lots of photos.) I'm linking to Patti's Visible Monday.
How cool was this Yellow Submarine sign?
Over 700 turned up. That's a lot of people to smile at.
The gang arrived to offer moral support.
Adrian fell for the Mario Barruti for Harris Tweed blazer (which he's modelling here) and a 1960s moleskin waistcoat with fox head buttons on our menswear rail and went home a happy boy.
Liz took a shine to my 1960s Borg coat but didn't buy so it lives to attend another fair.
I made my sign at 6am on Sunday morning.
We've just got round to unloading the truck & counting yesterday's takings and the good news is we've now raised enough cash for a trip to India but with at least two more fairs booked it won't be for a few weeks yet.
It's a day of catching up with blogs, emails, texts and listing some stock on our Facebook page once I've demolished the veggie sausage sandwich I can smell cooking.
See you soon.
