December Vintage Vogue Fair

On Sunday 6th December,Anne and Colin attended the ever more popular Vintage Vogue Fashion Fair in Brentwood, Essex. The fair is fast becoming the most fashionable place to be seen outside London, especially with celebrities joining the masses and seeking out a bargain or two! The day was a great success and we hope to return with our wares for the next fair in the new year. You can take a better look at all the information and see all the dates for 2010 here.

On Friday 27th November, we took part in a fabulous Ladies Only Spa and Shop event to help raise money for Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
We held a stall along with several other ladies who were selling jewellery, handbags, make up and other lovely girly products. There were also ladies giving hand massages and advising on colour therapy. Also on hand were 2 wonderful men dishing out hand made canapes and delicious mini desserts! All the various stalls and organisations donated gifts for goody bags and raffle prizes for the 50 women who attended the party. It really was a great night with over £1000 being raised. Our heartfelt thanks go to Sophie Brown, the amazing woman who organised the whole thing, for inviting us to take part and help in our own small way to make the evening such a success!

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting for so long, The Vintage Fabric Market has been a hive of busy bee-ness since November. Here are just a few of the many, many, many photos taken on Halloween of Hazel and The Little Emperor. They had a fantastic time at a party and then went trick or treating! It was great fun and lots of sweeties were collected for consumption over the following days!!
