Thanks so much for all the birthday wishes! You guys rock.
Gary Numan was amazing last night, the Wulfrun was packed out with with hoards of middle-aged people with badly dyed black hair wearing far too much eye liner. I felt right at home.
Tonight & tomorrow evening I'll be off out belatedly celebrating with friends. Unfortunately we're busy with vintage fairs all weekend so I won't be as badly behaved as usual, I don't want to frighten off any potential buyers. I'm scary enough at the best of times without the additional blood-shot eyes and the aroma of last night's booze.
If you're around we'd love to see you. What do you mean, you live on the other side of the world? That's no excuse!
If you really can't make either I've taken a few snapshots of just a few of the wares we've packed.
Maxis, minis and midis.
Lace, sequins, chiffon and beading.
|Capes, jackets and coats.|
There's loads more from some very tasty menswear, retro accessories and vintage home wares. I've even got a rather fab 1963 Olivetti portable typewriter up for grabs, fully tested and ready for a new home.
I'm not much of a typist, strictly one fingered, I'm afraid. Cowing* Grammar schools and their lack of practical skill teaching. I can read Latin & explain Pythagoras' theorem but ask me to do anything useful and I'm buggered.
*Black Country expletive.
The postman's called today bringing a parcel of birthday joy from Clare. This blouse is fabulous and there's loads of cool jewellery to play with, too!
Those peace sign earrings are getting an outing later!
Here's some of the amazing handmade cards I got. Fuck Off is Sarah's awesome handiwork, Liz's is the cool cape pattern, Jon's is Speak Vintage and Alice's masterpiece features Oz Clarke, Buddha and Biba.
Sorry, I've wittered on a bit here, must be my age. I'll probably be too knackered to post for a few days with all our selling, smiling and socialising so I'm getting it all in now.

See you soon.
