What a glorious day it was on Sunday for our return to Stockport's Vintage Village. This month's theme was Mod and the scooter clubs turned up in their droves.
How amazing do this couple look? Like Mim, she's the proud owner of the British-made Mod Shoes. So impressed was Paul Weller by their incredibly cool vintage Lambretta that he signed it for them. We kitted a few of the Mods out with 1960s Crimplene shifts, boating blazers and Tootal scarves and cravats in readiness for Brighton.
Talking of cool couples, here's our Lynn and Philip, resplendent in their vintage finery.
We hadn't seen them in absolute ages so it was a joy to catch up.
...And here's Teddy, the official mascot of Suzy Loves Milo Boutique, last seen at the Classic Car Boot Sale in that London a couple of weeks ago.
Here's Paula (aka Mrs Morton Vintage) and very cute dog.
I know I'm always banging on about the range of stuff you can find at Vintage Village but it really is amazing. Even a vintage sceptic would find it hard to leave empty handed.
We sold stuff, we posed for photos and caught up with friends old and new and we had so much fun we're going to do it all over again next month.
They day ended, as it often does with an impromptu pint in the company of some of our crazy vintage family (Suzy Loves Milo and Essentially Eagle Vintage). Look at the size of that Yorkshire pudding.
Of course, it's impossible to visit Vintage Village without buying something...and I did. Well, how could I resist psychedelia, vintage Indian block print and 1970s Lundby?
I also came home with some fab freebies courtesy of our friends Lisa & Mark.
Right, I'm off to lie in the garden, it's glorious out there!
